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...

We went to see in the New Year and watch all the fireworks from the City. Albeit a bit cold, we could see all across London from Parliament Hill and enjoy the celebrations.

I love how sprawling and raw this park is. It captures that English feeling of lush, raw and exciting. The paths are raw and windy, so it is easy to get lost while you wander around, admiring the twisty trees and the phenomenal city view from the Parliament Fields. From a lady's bathing pond to a picnic in front of... More

There are many ways to enjoy this wonderful green North London oasis, whether it be walking the dog, jogging, swimming in the ponds, flying a kite, picnicking or simply relaxing and unwinding, its heavenly. Looking down from Parliament Hill (Kite Hill) there is a spectacular view across the city of London. Standing in such a peaceful location its hard to... More

This is just a beautiful patch of green in London. The park is lovely for a long stroll. It's atmosphere is quite tranquil, despite the many families who come for picnics and let their kids run free. It was a rather sunny day when we visited the park in August, which made our visit even nicer than it already was.

Worth a visit to enjoy the space, the sunshine, and the fact that you can see the city high rises in the background. Spend time walking around watching what North Londoners do in there free time!

This was our first "touristy" thing to do on our first trip to London 4 yrs ago. It is still one of our favorites. There is a lookout where you can see Central London and its hard to believe that the city is all around you because it is so quiet in the park. We visited on a warm day... More
