The stately home, based in Hampstead Heath, will be made available for corporate events.

Meeting rooms available in the afternoon can seat up to 70 in a theatre style setting or 12 in a boardroom style setting in the ‘Lecture Room’ and ‘Reference Library’.

As well as this, the house can also facilitate evening events for corporate hire. The ‘Orangery Room’ can hold a drinks reception for 100 and dinner for 80, while the ‘Dining Room’ offers a similar service for up to 50 people.

Simon Thurley, chief executive of English Heritage, said: "We want people to experience Kenwood as a home, to sit back and enjoy the views, both inside and outside the house."

Kenwood House has been closed since March 2012 while the house was rejuvenated, which was partly funded by a £3.89m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
