This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the London and gives great views over the city, including Canary Wharf and The Shard. Will be visiting again for a pause from the city.

this is the best park in london to visit , relax or go on an adventure through the many walking trails. Plenty around to see and the park has a great deal of history surrounding it. In the summer time it has outdoor concerts from Kenwood house and the park restaurant/cafe has a delight of home made feasts. The woodland... More

Enormous area with large expanses of land. An adventure playgound which is amazing when its open. The normal playgound is fantastic but very busy. The three swimming ponds are great, but don't take young children as you must be eight to swim and must take a test to make sure you're good enough. The water can be a bit cold.... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this park, which is not as manicured and artificial as Hyde Park or Regent's Park. A big section of the park is a forested area with lovely paths in the midst of all that green. There are several ponds with ducks and swans as well. The atmosphere in the park is very laid back...

We were in in Hampstead to visit a local National Trust Property,Fenton House and Garden, and decided to visit Hampstead Heath because, despite having lived in an around London all our lives, we had never been there. It is owned and managed by the Corporation of London and has the famous Hampstead Ponds. It is a very popular place for... More

Have spent much time in and around the parks of London, Richmond being my favourite. Went walking here with my wife and family during a long distance running weekend which was a washout. It was a mud bath, but on the peak of the hill a stunning view of central London and beyond. Always busy and rarely all that peaceful... More

I loved Hampstead Heath! The part is large and has a few ponds here and there. It's a very nice place to have a walk in. It has a very pretty hill, which has an amazing prospect, particularly in the spring.

I have been to Hampstead Heath a few times over the years. It is a vast park, with natural ponds where one can swim with ducks!, large areas of grass for picnics, areas of vegetation that appears to grown wild but with clear signs of being attended to. Great places for coffee and light meals. It is easily accessible from... More
