Hampstead Heath is a park that offers some of the famous English countryside in urban London. It is the perfect perch for a picnic or a stroll. Parlament Hill, located in the park, is perhaps on of the most famous and widely used locations of London in films and television shows. Hampstead Heath is a massive park that offers all sorts of outdoor activities for all to enjoy. They even have a pool, which the British call a lido.

One of my most favorite things to do while in London is to pack a small picnic and venture out to one of London’s many parks. Hampstead Heath’s Parliament Hill over looks London and give a fantastic view of the city. All are welcome and there isn’t a charge to take in this beautiful site. It is nice to get out of central London for a bit when you are there, and this is an excellent place to visit to do that. You will get to see a view of London that most don’t get to see. It is well worth the trip to see this famous London landmark.
