“Gem of North London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Since living beyond the Thames in South, I was not familiar with the north until friends took me there. It was a surprisingly charming public place. Mindful that there are open water swimming ponds and one for women and the other for men. I was curious to take a peek inside and people there seemed to have a different set of minds for being there.

“Favourite green spot in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

There is a lovely view of the whole of London from the top of Parliament Hill, and it doesn't cost a penny, as opposed to the Shard.

If you have kids, the Parliament Hill side of the heath has a very large children's playground with paddling pool open in the summer.

Descend the hill towards the Hampstead side and there is a very nicely decorated gastropub on Downshire Hill called The Freemasons Arms.

Kenwood House, towards the Hampstead Garden Suburb side of the heath also has a restaurant and plenty of tables with parasols outside. It's always very busy, and a bit like Crufts with the multitude of dog walkers there.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

My local friend took me to this park while i was in London and it ended up being the only park i ended up visiting.
Lots of green areas, and lots of dogs being walked/playing. Got a sense that this was a park where perhaps more locals are seen than tourists.
Sit by one of the swimming ponds and enjoy the sunshine (if there is any). Pretty place.

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Hampstead Heath offers a wonderful green haven within the bustling city.
Bring a picnic, walk along the many trails, visit Kenwood House. It's the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon. Or perfect for brisk, crisp winters walks.
