  • We stayed in Hampstead and walked to the heath. Met some other Aussies in the park and had a chat and they pointed up to the best vantage point. Lovely park with swans and cygnets in the pond.  more »
  • Spent several hours walking through this glorious Heath. Everything well signposted, lots to see and the view from Parliament Hill was staggering.  more »

  • One of the best park in London. The park is huge and nature. Grate place for running, walking, swimming, hiking, sunbathing, and relaxing.
  • A perfect option for a summer day in London. Bring your own picnic and have a fantastic time with friends and family. Amazing for walking your dog as well.
