Hampstead Heath is beautiful and total worth a break from the busier parts of London. Great cafes and restaurants in the area, great for students who are looking to get some homework done!

You can stay to the paved paths, which is recommended if you have a destination as I did and got side-tracked. Very easy to get side-tracked up here and in the surrounding town. Find Parliament hill and then follow the paths north to Kenwood house; you must visit Kenwood house. You Just must. Take the overground tube to hamstead heath.... More

Third time that my daughter is taking me to this beautiful park. The lights and the colours are amazing. Last time we went also to the Kenwood House (please read my review) where the Nothing Hill movie was filmed. This time we spotted the hill from where you can see London and where everybody is at sunset as the light... More

This is the only high end hair salon I came across in Hampstead. Although there's many hair skins but I have to admit if you're lucky to have Joseph give you a hair cut and David transform your mousy hair color into a lively shade then you're in the right NW spot. It's situated at the entrance of the Virgin... More

This is a really beautiful green area in North London. Ideal for walks and spending a splendid afternoon in the sun. Easily reached by tube (Hampstead) or train (Hampstead Heath) or by bus, it is one of the prettiest green spaces in London. A huge area, it has lots of wildlife. A must see when visiting London! Make sure you... More

It is good in every season, BUT April is the rhododendrons season and the park has huge bushes in so many colors. There is the shell which is the home to the orchestras that play here on Saturdays of summer. The lake and brooks all around. Hill for kite flying, natural ponds for women and another for men. These are... More

Look, I am biased. I live close to the Heath and I walk and run on it every week. It is an extraordinary uncultivated, untamed area in the middle of one of the most expensive areas of London. A real privilege to be able to use it. Lots of wildlife too - hawks, foxes, butterflies. Beautiful! With amazing views of... More

This is my favourite place in London. The heath is beautiful and well used by people visiting or local to the area. The ponds are secluded and amazing (if cold) to swim in, in an area that you wouldn't know was minutes from traffic and central London. There are also lots of sports clubs, mine being Hampstead Rugby club, and... More

Beautiful park, nice walking areas and a real oasis away from the frantic mania that is London. Come here to recharge .
