“Last week, we went to Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath. We had a walk around the lovely park, enjoying the sunny weather and the view of the skyline of London. In Kenwood House, there is an exhibition of paintings, painted by different artists. But there are not just paintings, there are technical exhibits as well. For example, Claudia and I discovered an old wheel-chair! One of the guides in Kenwood House, explained to us, that the inventor of this chair had also invented several other things, roller blades for example! The guide told us a funny story about the flamboyant inventor. Finally, we had a little break in the cafe before we went back to Camden. It was a nice and interesting trip!”

“Hampstead Heath is a lovely big park in the north of London. There is a nice viewpoint, called Parliament Hill, a lot of walkways and Kenwood House. Kenwood House is a majestic mansion and was built in 1616. Inside, there is a collection with old beautiful impressive paintings. So thank you so much to our teacher Jonny for this excursion on a sunny day. It was wonderful!”

“On Thursday 18th of April, our teacher Jonny proposed us to take a walk in Hampstead Heath. So we left school around 10:00 AM and we went by bus.

We started in the south of the park and walked probably for one and a half hour and finished at Highgate. I really enjoyed this peaceful park because there are different atmospheres, green areas, woods, lakes and a wonderful view of London despite the fact you cannot clearly feel the city!

At the end of our walk, we visited Kenwood House, had a drink and went back to the school.”

“Oh well. I almost was late for school today. I don’t know what happened to my alarm clock. It just didn’t ring. But finally, everything was fine. I was at school on time. But at the beginning of the class, our teacher Jonny reminded us of the trip to Hampstead Park.

Oh my god, I had forgotten about this. I didn’t wear my sneakers. Ok, nevermind, I thought. When we arrived at Hampstead Heath, we started walking along a road that led us to the top of the hill. There was an amazing skyline of the city. We could identify the main buildings of London despite the slight haze.

I confess that in the middle of the road, I was a little tired. When we got to Kenwood House, I was able to rest and stretch my legs. Kenwood House is very pleasant. It was probably built in the early 17th century.

There is a renowned collection of Old Masters and British paintings. Most paintings of the time served with a summer house for the Royal Family. After we visited the museum outside of the house, we enjoyed some drinks together around the table.

Then we went back to Tti School. Just a great day trip!”
