Burgh House

The venue is the lovely Burgh House, just a few minutes walk from Hampstead tube station on the Northern Line (not Hampstead Heath - that's the nearby Overground station).
Tip: You can visit the Burgh House museum and exhibitions first, and maybe the charming little garden and The Buttery Café. But if you need to kill time for an hour and a half between the house and cafe closing and first arrivals for the talk at 6.30pm (for a 7pm start), there is a very civilised pub (The Wells) opposite the house. Hampstead is also a delightful village which can be explored. The Heath is just minutes away from Burgh House and can be explored in a mini nature walk.
