It's a bit odd to 'review' a large, largely wild park, but I will say that this is worth a visit, no matter how short your time in London. Give up a morning watching the changing of the guards or getting stuck in the crowds outside the palace, and instead take the tube up here for a walk through truly... More

Lots of people but so much room and variety of scenery, wild to kept. Gets pretty muddy so bring your wellies. There is a cafe there, lakes, play areas.

There is not much to say. It is another neighborhood in North London., without specific charm or interesting buildings.

If you would like to walk in natural surroundings (e.g. whilst others of your group go shopping) then you found an ideal place. Ask for the location of the old pub (The Spaniards) and have a nice drink before going back. A Pure Marvel

You should definitely go to Parliament Hill which opens a beautiful view to some part of London. It is better to take a book or your dog with you or just to enjoy nature sounds sitting on a bench. There were also many runners who had endless space for jogging.

Hampstead Heath is a great place to visit with a great view over London if you enter from Hampstead Lane not far from Kenwood House. Also the Brew House has a variety of foods and we were able to sit outside even though it was in February. Great place for walks, jogging, biking and bring your dog if you have... More

This is the home of Cross Country National and London championships. I'm a local and recommend it to any sporty visitors to go for a run. Do go up Parliament Hill, the highest point in the park, for a breathtaking view of London. Going for a swim at one of the designated ponds is a magical experience. There are 3,... More

Continuing my Journey of London Parks, and Sunday 15th of March I choose Hamstead Heath Park. It was love, at first sight, a natural almost wild spot in London. You feel as you are miles away from the city, and you are in Zone two. Unbeliveble! I am a nature lover, and if you like to push yourself with outdoor... More

This park made my childhood so memorable... Fond memories of feeding the ducks along the lake and strolling my baby brother along the green lawns and being greeted by the locals with a warm smile. The view is picture perfect.

If you want to see a lovely side of London, this place is best visited in the summer. Apart from the lovely architecture like most of London and its history this place boasts a beautiful and paradise like aura. Its a little pricey as far as attractions go, but the park or the 'heath' is a great place for individuals,... More
