I love wandering around the Heath anyway, but Parliament Hill is by far my favourite spot in the park. On New Years (and, I'd imagine, any other night when fireworks are the norm) you can see a sort of 360 view of all the fireworks around London. On a sunny day, I love taking up a bottle of wine, some snacks, and a good book and enjoying the view.
It's a bit of a hill to get up there, but...more
Parliament Hill!! Where the hell! have you been? Ive been to Hampstead Heath numerous time's and I have not seen you!!
I was blown away at Parliament Hill, the view of London was breathtaking! I saw Canary Wharf, St Paul's, O2 etc. On the other side you get a lovely view of Parliament hill mansion's and houses almost like their built on hills with a lovely old church at the background....more

If I was an animal, it would be a cat. Actually, I'm most like a chicken - I cluck a lot. But if I could choose it would be a cat. Or maybe a squirrel...

Had a shit day at work? Come here and get some green stains on your clothes. Part of the joy...more

Amazing view, and a good workout on the walk up, once you're at the top you'll want to soak it in. Perfect spot for those panorama-photographers. Getting here can be a little pain unless you're on bus...more
