“If you want to go for a dip in the Hampstead Ponds, I would highly recommend this and a great walk! Please note, this is in North London though so will take almost an hour to get to from my apartment. ”

“Incredible parkland, 15 minutes walk from the house. Walk up kite hill for a stunning view across London, dare to dip in the swimming ponds, or for the kids, head to the well equipped playgrounds and huge paddling pool. With a couple of nice cafes, there's something for everyone, plus a fantastic farmer's market on a Saturday. https://www.lfm.org.uk/markets/parliament-hill/ ”

History Museum
“Handsome 17th-century house with walled garden This beautiful 17th-century house is a hidden gem in London, a place of unique charm and ambience. Lady Binning bought the house in 1936 and filled it with her highly decorative collections of porcelain, Georgian furniture and 17th-century needlework. The sound of early keyboard instruments and the colours of early 20th-century drawings and paintings add to a captivating experience. Fenton House is a member of London Small Historic Houses. ”

Garden
“Between the generous expanse of Hampstead Heath and the bustle of Royal Free Hospital is a small garden with noble ambitions. The World Peace Garden actually does fulfil its name, it's a really peaceful woodland glade with three ponds and a wishing well. Residents and traders are responsible for rescuing what had been a waste ground area alongside Hampstead Railway Station for over a century, their words and hopes are immortalised in glass and ceramic tiles running across a wall. The garden is also a venue for tea parties, puppetry shows, jazz evenings and regular chess tournaments.”
