Tradition meets cosmopolitan along the hilltop streets of Hampstead, which is widely considered the perfect blend of village life and London buzz. Popular and recognisable restaurants intersect with independent patisseries, fruiterers and delicatessens. Meanwhile, stylish boutiques and artisan shops sit beside world-renowned brands.
Stepping away from the High Street, Hampstead’s quiet streets transport you back in time. Beautiful town houses – and the occasional traditional pub – wind their way to Hampstead Heath. Stretching across 790 acres of grassland and wildlife, and with three swimming ponds, occasional concerts and travelling funfairs, this is an oasis within the bustle of city life.
Hampstead is as functional as it is fun. Home to the famous Royal Free Hospital, it enjoys close proximity to two Overground stations, Finchley & Frognal and Hampstead Heath, and also has its own easily accessible tube stop on the Northern line. With buses taking you north to Golders Green and Highgate, and south to Central London, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy all that London has to offer.
