Roam amid acres of green landscape

Hampstead Heath is one of London’s most iconic green spaces, over 800 acres in size and the inspiration for numerous books, poems and films. The abundance of nature provides a complete contrast to the urban environment, with woods and meadows to ramble through, and the famous swimming ponds for a bracing dip.

Within the heath is the beautifully landscaped Hill Garden and the pergola, a magical series of pillars and arches entwined with vines and flowers. Hampstead Heath is just 11 minutes by bike from West Hampstead Central, so you can enjoy this inspiring landscape whenever you want.

Situated in the south east corner of Hampstead Heath, Parliament Hill is the highest point in London and offers spectacular views over the city. There is also an athletics track, cricket ground, lido, tennis courts, playground and café.

Nearby Primrose Hill is another of the city’s special green spaces and a wonderful viewpoint overlooking central London. It was once where duels and prize-fights took place; now it’s the perfect spot for picnics and strolls.
