Finchcocks – 12 miles
Finchcocks, a fine Georgian manor in Kent, houses Richard Burnett’s celebrated collection of over 100 keyboard instruments: harpsichords, pianos, organs and many more. Some forty of them are in full working order, with a staff of professional musicians providing live demonstrations throughout your visit.
Finchcocks also invites keyboard players of all ages to play the instruments, and to experience first-hand the sounds that composers such as Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Brahms made as they created their masterpieces, or simply entertained their friends.
In between musical interludes, enjoy the pictures and prints in the museum, stroll in the beautiful gardens, visit the Cellar Restaurant, or browse in the gift shop.
