Hampstead Heath


Hampstead Heath is a lush green oasis located within the pulsing heart of London, and it offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle. This vibrant park boasts an abundance of lush greenery, rolling hills and an abundance of wildlife, as well as three open-air swimming ponds sure to be a hit with visitors of all ages. What's more, the Heath also connects with some outstanding countryside nearby, such as Golders Hill Park, providing an even more immersive nature experience.

The Heath itself is a large space boasting a dense selection of trees, lakes and ponds, providing everything from short leisurely strolls to longer hikes where one can take in the natural beauty of this area. Whether it be majestic oak trees, birds singing in chorus or sunlight streaming through the branches, Hampstead Heath has an irresistible allure. Take it from a local, it's hard not to become fully immersed in the tranquil vibes that blanket this urban woodland.

If it's culture you're after, you can seek out the West Heath, the home of Kenwood House, and explore the historic treasures the property holds. Then there's Jack Straw's Castle, a pub and restaurant with views of the local area, or the Hampstead Heath cafe, which boasts some mouthwatering meals including vegan and vegetarian options. Plus, Hampstead Heath also plays a part in local folklore which is sure to delight Christmas Eve travellers. On December 24th at 11pm, the Heath is magically illuminated by a display of flickering glow-sticks. It's simply a sight to behold!
