If you get a chance, go for a walk through this beautiful part of London during winter. The solace, peace and quiet, the squirrels, the trees, snow and fresh air is just fantastic. I always use this park to walk or run off my jet-lag and it works every time!

The walks and views are very good. The scenery is picturesque, and the trees look good - especially in Autumn.

It is very big with so many different ways to enter and leave the Heath. With adjoining areas of parks, many ponds, lots of wooded areas and beautiful views throughout it makes for a wonderful stroll any time of the year. I love walking through to Golders Green in late summer the most or through to Kenwood but the cafes... More

This is one of the great urban "parks" of the world -- an extensive green space in the North portion of London, filled with woods, hills, walks... if you have the time and it is a nice day, it is a glorious place to visit. The "village" of Hempstead, now a posh part of London, abuts the Heath and has... More

We did not have high expectations for finding interesting birdlife near London in late November, but with the help of a "birdingpal" to guide us, we were pleasantly surprised. Hampstead Heath and adjoining park-like areas are huge. The birds were uninspiring by local standards by still interesting for overseas visitors. Coffee at a former estate was a great way to...

Lovely park to walk around and amazing views from parliament hill. Lovely shops around the park and ponds to swim in ( if you are a memeber if I remember correctly)

Took the opportunity to have a Sunday morning stroll whilst waiting for the shops to open in the village, nice to see that the heath is still well used by the dog walkers, joggers, amazing that an area like this still exists in London, sad to see Jack Straws Castle was closed

We try to do a trip to HH a few times of year. I love the area surrounding it: so posh and nice. We often spend several hours walking around and taking in the views before going for dinner at one of the great restaurants that flank the park. Definitely a great place for those who wish to get away... More
