As a National Trust member I occasionally visit the nearby Fenton House and 2 Willow Road, also Keats House. It isn't 'right in the heart of London' though, although the previous reviewer thinks so. It's only a short walk away from any of these places and is very large. Superb views over Central London can be had (the dome of... More

A really nice place to go for a walk on a dry and sunny day. If wet, bring your wellies. The ponds are close if you don't mind a swim, and views of London great from Parliament Hill. There is really something for everyone and you'd forget you are right in the heart of London.

Lovely views and woodlands. Best in autumn and spring. Too many people walking their dogs though. The Spaniards Inn, which almost blocks the road along Hampstead Lane is said to have been used by the famous highwayman Dick Turpin. Jack Straw's Castle at the top of the Heath is a very old wooden lathe and plaster building. Jack Straw was... More

A wonderful heath which provides a great opportunity to enjoy what nature has to offer on the outskirts of central London. Kenwood House is situated in the middle of the heath and well worth a visit to take in the superb gardens in the surrounding area.

When we visit London we love to stay in Belsize Park and to clim Parliament Hill and stroll around Hampstead Heath. The views of central London (and of Highgate) are splendid. The wildlife is good (ringnecked parakeets, woodpeckers, waterfown etc). The network of paths is mostly good (it would be better if more were surfaced because it does get very... More

I met up with a "friend" just below the Hampstead tube station, at a nice pub called the Flask. After a tipple, we went on a walk to the Heath. We made our way to the Heath and wandered through the paths up to the top of Parliament Hill. My breath was taken away, not only by the romantic, charming... More

Hampstead Heath will take a few trips to explore it all. It's HUGE. Kenwood House at the northern side is beautiful and is a great pitstop for lunch. Google maps and a sense of direction are all you need. Get off the well worn tracks and explore! If it's a sunny day, definitely walk to parliament hill, take in the... More

London is justly renowned for, and proud of, its parks and open spaces. Of these Hampstead Heath surely offers the greatest scope for diverse outdoor pleasures close to the centre of a bustling metropolitan city. We took the London overground to Hampstead Heath Station and entered the Heath from the south. First stop, a picnic on Prior’s Field where green... More
