Time Out says

The Duke of Northumberland's London home, the only surviving ducal residence and country estate in Greater London, is right out of BBC costume drama territory, down to its 40 acres of Capability Brown gardens, 200 acres of parkland and magnificent Renaissance house. Indeed, if it looks familiar, it's probably because you'll have seen it on various TV shows, most recently the Beeb's 'Great British Bake Off' and Stephen Poliakoff's drama 'Dancing on the Edge.' On occasional Sundays and holidays under-16s can visit for free (maximum of two free tickets per paying adult); in 2013 these are May 5 and 6, May 26 and 27, and daily from Sunday July 21 to Thursday August 29. Note that the house and gardens are closed from August 30 to September 7.

Foodies Festival 2022

  • Festivals

Listen. We all love food. We all love music. Foodies festival brings both together in a bumper programme of eating, drinking, and food-inspired entertainment – and boy, does it sound tasty. Taking full advantage of the Jubilee bank holiday weekend in June, the 2022 event will make its anticipated return to London with a three-day takeover of Syon Park. From ‘Great British Bake Off’ stars to ‘MasterChef: The Professionals’ winner Daniel Lee, celebrity chefs will cook up top quality entertainment, meanwhile street food stands and the Feasting Tent will be on hand to keep bellies filled with some serious scran. The Cook Book Shop will be open for all of your recipe needs, and if you’re feeling extra spicy, there’ll even be an opportunity to compete against world chilli-eating champion Shahina Waseem. Children can join in with the gastronomic fun at the Kids Cookery Theatre, meanwhile pop-up bars and the Drinks Theatre will be open for adults to soak up the atmosphere with newly released wines, champagnes and cocktails. All of that (and more) will be soundtracked by performances from the likes of Scouting For Girls and Lee Ryana and Simon Webbe from Blue, as well as a line-up of rising talent playing on the Musicians Against Homelessness stage. A percentage of Foodies Festival ticket money goes towards UK-wide homelessness charity Crisis.
