Gorgeous Park in London

One of my favourite places to watch the world go by...lovely hidden lakes, mini gardens and Hampstead is full of quaint and cosy cafes.

The Heath is a very large open space park with several different areas for swimming, walking, sports and historical sites. The Kenwood Estate includes a beautiful manor house with a treasured collection of portraits by Rembrandt, Vermeer and many others. This large park was all saved from development in the early 1900s by community efforts.

The heath is a wonderful place to get away from the craziness of the city. It really is a joy to wander aimlessly around the vast acreage, or to bring a picnic on a warm sunny day. You can let your dog off its lead and watch it romp through the grasses and trees. When you are finished, you can... More

I went there by bike (took it on the overground during off peak times). A lovely park, can see lots of variety, I didn't try the pond as I'm not sure how clean it is. However, people seemed to enjoy it

Just love Hampstead Heath. What is not to like? So many different facets, a beautiful space to explore from the manicured areas through to the rough & ready woodlands. Amazing views across London. A truly wonderful way to spend the day with family & friends. Cafe at Kenwood House is rustic and serves tasty food. And, Kenwood house has some... More

One of the only places where you can get elevated views of central London while standing on the ground! Parliament Hill is on the south end of Hampstead Heath and is a manageable but uphill walk from either Hampstead Heath or Gospel Oak stations. The rest of the Heath contains many walks across open ground or through wooded areas, past... More

Only place in London central where you can actually think you are away from cars and in the woods, also good if you like to walk some low hills

Hampstead Heath is a 'gem' of London. From the ponds on the West Heath side to the Spaniards Inn walks. The summer concerts in Kenwood . Indeed Kenwood House itself is worth a visit. The views in the summer from the terrace are amazing. You will find your own favorite part of the heath, give it a chance.

I love visiting here. It's so beautiful and filled with trees and nature. DUH! It's a park. But it's a very expansive one with many different facets. You can easily get lost here because it's so big. It's how I think most parks should be. Only downside is it can be tough to get there.

When in North West London it is a must to take a stroll on the Heath. The Heath is currently undergoing works (so called strengthening the ponds through the 'ponds projects'); however you can still discern the magic of this great green space in the heart of North West London. With good sunny days the ponds (there are three- mixed,... More
