West Hampstead is surrounded by some of London’s most revered green spaces. In contrast to the manicured gardens of Regents Park the wilds of Hampstead Heath feature untamed terrain, woodlands and ponds and even opportunities for an open water swim! Parliament Hill offers a spectacular panorama from one of the highest natural viewpoints of London, although many would argue the views from Primrose Hill, also within easy walking distance, are second to none.
The neighbourhood offers plenty of opportunity to while away the hours, from browsing independent bookshops to an evening at West Hampstead Arts Club. Summer concerts at Kenwood House are a must, surrounded by an elegant landscape showcasing sculptures by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
Long synonymous with high art, soak up the character of neighbouring Hampstead with its theatres, galleries, historic sites and majestic architecture or venture a short distance to enjoy central London’s world class cultural scene.
