I was there with my girlfriend for about three hours during the weekend. The picturesque area is perfect for relaxation, photo sessions and picnics. We were holding hands and just enjoying the beautiful nature.more

Located near on a hillside near the posh Highgate Village, views of London from this park are very pretty....more

A hidden gem! Probably because it's so close to Highgate Cemetery nobody bothers to mention this great park right next to it. There are lots of benches, green space to spread out; a hilly terrain, lovely ponds and a poplar (right tree species?) define the landscape.

Everything you'd need on a day out is there, including clean, free toilets and a lovely tiny café in Lauderdale House serving...more
