What a wonderful place to be in this beautiful area surrounded by trees and ponds. As a woman going swimming on a hot day all alone, I felt safe and welcomed into this wonderful oasis of nature. Young and old swim here and enjoy the peace of the pond and meadow. Not to be missed.

Best cafe around, great pasta, friendly staff. Nice place to sit outside or in for a drink or a meal. Watch the local characters then take a walk up the hill for a great view of London.

Very similar to Richmond Park but a bit smaller and no deer. Vast area of natural parkland and wooded area, complete with a number of very large ponds/small lakes. Took the dogs last weekend and they were in doggy heaven. A really enjoyable few hours. Only a short walk into Hampstead village or Belsize Park so easily accessible by car,... More

The Heath is a massive area with loads to do. Take a walk through the forested areas, soak up the sun or have a picnic or game of football in the grassy extension or a swim in one of the ponds. Great for dog owners who want to take along a four legged friend. Busy and popular though plenty of... More

This is local to me, so I go all the time. It can be busy at the weekend, but worth going in the week. If it is hot enough the Women's Pool, which is a lovely natural lake, an oasis. Kenwood Cafe is great and has large umbrellas so you can sit out all year.

I remember taking a very long walk with a friend in the Health one cold November day. It's a great park to walk in, and we esp loved climbing to the stop of the hill that overlooks London. Golders Hill Park is still my fav. park in the area and I would highly recommend visiting both (although they would need... More
