Unlike any other park in London. Like most have said, you feel in the wild. It's really vast as well, quite a walk. Make sure you get to the top to see the view of London. There was also a pond for dipping, lovely for a nice day. Worth seeing.

Such a lovely park, it's so big you almost forget you are in London. Walk around, worth letting yourself get lost. The walk all the way to Kenwood House is also worth it, the gardens around the house are very beautiful.

I came here to visit a good friend of mine and I had the pleasure to walk through the Heath. Nice to walk through.

We paid an unscheduled visit to this large open green space on a fine Sunday. Well worth the long hike to the lookout. On a clear day you can see the City skyline.

We met some friends here, who were local to this location. When we arrived we were amazed by the great views over London. It was hard to imagine such a beautiful, quiet open area so close to the city. There are even toilets which makes it ideal for a picnic.

Very pleasant and tranquil, the best of londons green open spaces. Great for picnics with friends and families with children. Plenty open space and wooded areas for just relaxing or exploring or watching the wildlife. Swimming ponds for those more daring or there is a children's pool and play area down towards the athletics running track and usually and ice... More

Beautiful, well maintained part of London and worth the short walk from the connecting transport. Has swimming ponds which are separated for genders. Monetary donations are suggested to use these facilities. The toilets do get a little busy on a hot day so prepare to wait, ladies!

For me the best park in London. Large, so not so crowded like for example Regent's Park, great spot to enjoy the view is Parliament hill. Kenwood Gardens in the park area are a great place for a walk in the woods, great smells and old trees, quite paths that finish at a beautiful lake and Kenwood house. The last... More

For a walk in the woods in any type of weather, Hampstead Heath cannot be beat. Summer brings the kite-flyers and everyone else up to Parliament Hill; Kenwood House has been renovated and offers a most surprising are collection including Rembrandt and Vermeer; the restaurant at Kenwood is also wonderful. But it's so large that it's easy to find paths... More
