Hampstead is one of my favourite neighbourhoods in London. Located in the North West, about 15 minutes tube ride from central London, it is leafy, green residential suburb with arguably one of the most famous streets in the country - Bishops Avenue aka "Millionaire's Row". This neighbourhood is great to walk about about in and visit the parks - especially... More

Get away from central London....this is a great place to stay. So much to do here, but its quiet. You are only 10-15 minutes from everything London has to offer. I would live here if I ever moved to London!

Something different, and easy to reach by tube: a great park, and several refreshing ponds. There is one for ladies only. Great location for a picnic. There is also a marvelous mansion full of art, with a nice cafe.

Hampstead is a lovely neighbourhood in north London, around the huge Hamptead Heath. Just walk around it is good enough, but there are very interesting tourist attractions, like Keats House, Fenton House, Church Row, Flask and Well Walk, etc. You will find nice and traditional pubs as well. Just take the Nothern Line up north till Hampstead station

This is the part of London that has everything you'd expect to see in an amazing city. It's history and charm are surrounded by green lush heathland that gives the area a village feel. Some streets wind up steps and down hills and you can imagine Victorian goings on - it just hasn't changed. There are secret parts that need... More

A visit to this 18th century village is a great experience..Wonder the tiny streets with its 18/19th century cottages and who knows rub shoulders with your idol of the theatre or the cinema screen.. A walk through Flask Walk and down Willow Road where I used to live ,as a matter of fact, and Willow Cottages the 19th century terrace... More

Hampstead is a peaceful town and a great place to escape the city. I would highly recommend the Hamstead walking tour.

Why can't more of London be as quaint, charming and liveable as historic Hampstead? Located just a short Tube ride from the city centre, Hampstead is a rather exclusive village situated in the highest part of the city. Indeed, its Tube station is the city's deepest. As the aforementioned 'exclusive' suggests, Hampstead is home of the affluent. Sting lives in... More

This is really worth making time for in a trip to London. It will give you an opportunity to come away from the noise and crowds of the city. I highly recommend the london walks tour as it takes you beyond the high street. Very interesting!
