One of the world's most amazing urban parks. Located in north London, it is absolutely huge, with forests, trails, wild meadows and manicured lawns, ponds for swimming and more. You really feel like you are out in the countryside. Pack a picnic lunch and come spend the day here.

The Heath is one of London's best places to stroll, picnic, swim, and chill out in general. The bathing ponds are an unexpected place to dunk yourself in the rare case of the weather getting hot enough, while panoramic views of London spread out beneath Parliament Hill. You can pop up to Kenwood House for a pint, or even join a foraging tour, which will take you around the Heath finding all of nature's good things to eat.

if you are in this neck of the woods - a family tradition for a Sunday afternoon walk with the dogs. A really lovely walk around one of London's beautiful parks. Within the heath is Kenwood House - a beautiful estate home which at certain times is open to the public and you can enjoy a cream tea on their pretty terrace in the summer. Also in the evenings there are outdoor concerts and movies being shown. Try to look online before visiting to see if you can get tickets for a show. A lot of great entertainers and singers play here. Most recently was Liza Minnelli .

One of my favorite places in the world. Great for running , hiking, picnics, swimming in the ponds,playgrounds for kids. In ten years of going there I am still discovering new places. There is a large playground on the south end near parliament hill. We particularly like the pergola located in the extension. Such magical spot to feel like you are in the middle of the woods yet still in central london!

Parks, like museums, are free to visit in London and, given the British talent for gardening, absolutely gorgeous. Hampstead Heath's slightly wild landscaping is perfect for picnics and wandering. You can even take a dip in one of the bathing ponds. Our recommendation is to ascend Parliament Hill for one of the best views of London around. All it will cost you is the energy to walk there.

We lived in London for nearly two years before we discovered the Hampstead Heath, which is a huge shame as it is one of London’s finest gems, and is, in my opinion, the most liberating outdoor activity in London. The fact that you can feel so far removed from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of London and yet be smack in the middle of it is a treat which is unusual for such a big city.

One of the highest point in London, Hampstead Heath is a massive London park, covering 720 acres in total, and one of Londoners favourite place to relax especially during Summer (other than that it's pretty windy and cold, at least for me). The coolest thing for me about the Heath is that it has not one, or two, but three(!) 'open-air' public swimming pools. Although I wouldn't call it 'pools' cause they are really are ponds, used to be reservoir for drinking water. Definitely not for the squemishes, as you will swim along with the fishes, the ducks and the swans ... or what ever lives in there :) Apart from that, the vast green area is just breathtaking.

The rumours are true, there are gays in West London too. In fact, Hamsptead Heath is somewhat notorious as a gay cruising spot and George Michael has actually admitted to using this park as cruising ground. You won’t find the young art school hipsters of London Fields here but an older clientele, probably walking the dog and dressed in tweed. There is also an all male pond here, which really heats up (in more ways than one) during the summer months.

London's answer to New York's Central Park or San Francisco's Golden Gate, this massive public park has days worth of activities to offer, from hiking trails and lakes to horse stables and sporting greens. You could literally spend a week exploring all the beautiful natural wildlife and minimal man-made buildings.
