Hampstead Heath remains one of the most popular green spaces in London, spread across 790 acres of wonderful open countryside. Visitors can choose to spend hours casually strolling through the winding lanes, head over to the zoo, pop into the education centre, let their children enjoy the many activities on offer, take a dip in the Lido or any of the three swimming ponds on offer.
For a slightly more refined afternoon, the beautifully designed and tranquil atmosphere of Kenwood House’s tea rooms offers the ideal getaway before venturing out to explore the woodland scattered throughout the expanse of the land. Parliament Hill is one of the most popular resting spots, situated at the highest point of the heath and giving visitors an incredible view of London that takes in the breadth of the city, from Canary Wharf through to St Paul’s and beyond.
