I've been coming here for years with happy childhood memories :-) it's truly the best park in London, a great place to visit for a walk or a picnic with family/friends in the summer! Fantastic views of the city on parliament hill, such a beautiful place to sit and relax plenty of stunning scenery and nature to see. I will... More

This place is sizeable and great on a sunny summers day or a crisp autumn or spring day. Would highly recommend visiting the famous parliament hill if only just for the view. Be warned though it's always busy on parliament hill...

Fantastic walks can be had across the Heath whilst the village itself offers many points of interest. Highgate is easily accessible from the Heath too which is well worth a visit.

Why do we always go to Hyde Park? This is an amaizing park too. You can find good views and different parts to enjoy it. I have enjoyed so much with little walks. Thanks to have these places to dream on...

Hill Garden and Pergola. This is an amazing find and is stunning through spring and summer. No dogs allowed, but pooch can wait outside the gate. You will need a camera and will most likely bump into a wedding party or photoshoot. Stunning for a basket lunch and a glass of wine.. http://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryMagazine/DestinationsUK/Hampstead-Pergola-Hill-Gardens/

Wonderful ancient parkland with massive grounds. Nice spot for a picnic, walkabout, or kicking a football around. Could spend hours there just doing nothing.

What a lovely part of London. Excellent spot to spend a day out of the usual array of London attractions. Picture perfect and so much history!

We were surprised that this park is not on the tourist's route. Perhaps because it's a little further out London than most of the usual spots. The park is not as well maintained as Hyde, Kensington, Green or James's Parks. However there was a large number of locals enjoying the sunshine. The view towards the city centre is amazing.

Hampstead Heath has become one of my favorite places in the whole world. I've been coming here for over 20 years and it never fails to touch me with its tranquility, panoramic views and a feeling of "all is well, life is good, and everything will be alright" Jogging down the lanes, walking through the woods or sitting on parliament...
