On most bank holidays, there is a fair at the heath. they have very good (but quite expensive) rides there, that will suite the whole family! i would recommend to go, as they can be not terribly busy!

I was passing through this park although it's ok except in the evening it's the local gay haunt but as long as you stay away at night it's ok

A truly excellent park and possibly the one place in central London where you don't feel as if you're in the city center. It's a great place to take a walk and with all the woodland around you can often feel as if you're in the countryside. This is a must visit for anyone who's regularly in London or who... More

A great green lung in north London! perfect when it is warm and sunny for both children and adults alike. Not to mention a great place for the family dog to run about! The park has also plenty of kiosks for ice cream and drinks. So if you need a cup of tea but the young ones want an ice... More

Right on the border of Hampstead Heath (and probably a part of it) and a 10 minute walk with a small group of under 5s from Golders Green Underground Station I was amazed to find this absolute gem of a park. We entered to find the Dinosaur sculptures and after finally dragging the little ones away we found a small... More

What a marvellous place the Heath is with its rugged pathways and splendid trees. From Parliament Hill and the hillside above Kenwood House there are impressive views of the London City skyline. The ponds are not looking quite their best at the moment as there is a massive earth-shifting project under way but, even so, there are wonderful places to... More

A beautiful park with awesome views of London! Being a tourist, I didn't realize there was a huge park with woods, swimming areas, and walking trails. This is definitely a spot I would spend more time at if I lived here, or had a longer visit in the city.
