It is wonderful that Hampstead Heath exists as a major park. In many cities the urge to build houses with such a great, scenic outlook would have been irresistible. At least, here the forefathers had the foresight to ensure this would not happen.

One the best parks in London and Europe. Though you feel you seen greater you need to remember the way it's maintained and established in London is perfection. Park is really big and wild. It's part of Hampstead Heath very affluent area itself and is part of escape from busy London into the wild and greens. Not only benefiting from... More

I lived in London for many years and always near Hampstead Heath. It's the perfect place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of London life, whether it be on a summers day when having a picnic with friends or walking on a crisp, autumnal day you won't find a better place.

Although it was a well maintained park with a nice mansion, my wife and myself weren't very enthusiastic.The lawn was neatly mown, there were lot's of people wandering about, but we were quit bored.

Go there to breathe from fresh air, to just walk through the extensive park and woodlands or for the brave, to swim in one of the ponds! Head right up to the top to have a nice lunch at the cafe near Kenwood House.

You need time to get to know this lovely and huge heath and all directions you can take from it. The way it has been conserved and its lovely landscapes, make it one of the best places to use in central London. Not forgetting the lovely ponds, where you can enjoy great swimming and completely forget about the city you're... More

I love this park because its never full of people and its hilly so you can't see whats coming until you get to the edge of the hill. Also had fun watching dogs get in the water and playing. Humans can also get in the ponds for a swim. Besides its in Hampstead which is beautiful, elegant, filled with "Sir"... More

Although London is a northern city, you may see a flock of parrots screaming their parrot screams in the trees. What are they doing there you may ask? Good question and it's hard to find the real answer--several legends like they escaped from the filming of The African Queen except that the African Queen wasn't filmed in London! The parrots...

I have been to London eight times. One of the places I have never been is Hampstead Heath. On this trip I decided to dedicate a day to exploring the heath. I took the tube to Hampstead, but instead of heading straight up the Spaniard's Road I walked northwest and entered the less crowded, "woodsier" part of the heath with... More

If you are sick and tired of the hustle and bustle of the city this is the place to go. This is an ideal spot for familes as the park contains swimming areas, bike paths,walking paths, and space enough to not hear the noise of the city. If you're able climb to the top of Parliment Hill and take in... More
