I have been walking on Hampstead Heath all my life and its wonderful. My dog especially loves it. They have a great restaurant which we go to from time to time on a Sunday but the walking is the best. It is also very good for picnics in the summer and you can also watch concerts. Hampstead Heath is great.

This park is huge and often GPS delay or dont work properly when inside (never arrange to meet friends in the park unless you all know it very well, best is to meet by one of the entrances). Excellent for picnic in the summer and even swim in the one of the ponds. The swimming pool LIDO is also a... More

Not a bad option at all, if you like North London, hazy views of the City, grass, dogs, occasional sightings of kestrels, frequent sightings of parakeets, London's version of fresh air, damp, many people walking and talking and reasonable views of the sky.

Gigantic park with lakes and a gorgeous panoramic view of the city from far far away! There are also some lakes where some professional swimmers practice. And some other lakes where you can play with your dog

This is wonderful place to come for a walk, picnic, sketching, or simply to gaze at the sky. It's immense, so one can have solitude with little effort. There is a good cafe next to Kenwood House.

I first learned about the Heath from "The Perfect London Walk" (1986), by Roger Ebert (yes, the late film critic); which is well worth tracking down. It's a great venue for picnicking, kite-flying dog-walking or urban hiking. Although primarily an outdoor attraction, the Heath also boasts Kenwood House, with a splendid art collection (free admission and interesting gift shop). Definitely... More

If you need or want a walk, fresh air and views, all near charming Hampstead then this is for you. Hampstead is one of the prettiest and high end suburb of London. The Heath is a gorgeous park so walk, then go into Hampstead and shop, eat and drink.

I go to the Heath everyday and it is my very favourite place in London. It is perfect Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - Kenwood House is always worth a visit with some wonderful hidden gems in inside.

this lovely little place is great if you want an afternoon out of the hussle of london. there are lots of small upmarket shops, gallereys - pubs and restaurants. also you have Highgate cementary, well worth a trip round, although you will need to book tickets for the tour. great afternoon or day out.
