Escape the hustle and bustle of London at Hampstead Heath! It’s a wonderful, spacious park perfect for cycling, jogging and long family walks (dogs are welcome too). Windy? Bring a kite to fly. Sunny? Bring a swimsuit. Yes, a swimsuit! Hampstead Heath has its own natural lido where you can dip in for free.

Love photography? Definitely take your camera with you! The park is just 4 miles away from Central London and if you climb to the top of Parliament Hill, you’ll discover great views of London’s most famous landmarks. This is how you do sightseeing for free while enjoying the peace and quiet of a vast, beautiful green area.

If you, like many other parents, have found out that animals make every day out with the kids better, head out to Golders Hill Park. This area of Hampstead Heath has a zoo with multiple animal enclosures and a butterfly house.
