Gorgeous gardens, rolling hills, view of the city, historic mansion, stunning artwork, freshwater swimming holes, rhododendrons in full bloom and yummy little cafe are all in this gem of a park. Definitely go if you can.

If you like walking, it's a lovely peaceful place. And covers a very large area. Varies from small lakes with swimming areas, to grassy hills, to more foresty parts. From Parliament Hill you can see London city. Took the overground to Hampstead Heath station them...More

Taking a walk through Hampstead Heath is so relaxing. There are benches tucked away off path, ponds, bridges, and a lovely view from Parliament Hill. Go for swim in one of the ponds. This place is a treasure.

We love London. We visit as often as we can. But, we'd never been to Hampstead Heath, so we took the tube and had a little wander around this green and pleasant land. Can you believe this beautiful green park is in Central London?! Its...More

I lived near Hampstead Heath when I was a child, but I never got to go there. What a joy to walk along tree-lined paths, catch sight of lakeside homes, frolicking dogs and skeptical ducks. Climbing up to the top of heath is worth any...More

This park is one of my favourite places for a quite stroll. Lots of bird life. The pair of swans and their cygnets are great to watch growing up from April/May onwards.

Vast expanse of natural space, lovely for dog walking. Some great views from the top of Parliament Hill and also a pleasant English Heritage site, Kenwood House. We didn’t go in the house itself but stopped in the courtyard for coffee before walking through the...More

Hampstead Underground is close to the southern end of the park. It's pretty far down. The lift is slow but don't even think of doing the stairs - you might not be able to race after that. I was heading to Kenwood House in... More
