Belsize Park & Hampstead
Belsize Park, Hampstead and the nearby South End Green offer endless things to do. Wander around the luscious heath, take in a spot of shopping or treat yourself to a taste sensation at one of the many bustling cafés and restaurants, or just fall in love on Parliament Hill.
If you’re here for the culture, go and see the famous Freud Museum or visit the Camden Arts Centre. Shopaholics beware – it is virtually impossible to keep your wallet tucked away. The area is packed with beautiful boutiques, gorgeous gift shops and high street favourites. Take your time to explore the pretty alleyways where you’ll discover a trove of delightful original stores. Whether you want a quick sandwich or just some nibbly bits to take for a picnic on the heath, a cup of strong coffee at Ginger + White's or sit down meal, you will be spoilt for choice. There are also good pubs to enjoy. You might not be rocking till dawn but you can sit and soak up the atmosphere in traditional boozers, have a meal in a gastro pub or take in a show at one of the fringe theatres. Belsize Park in particular is a hotspot for celebrities, where A-list musicians and actors reside, so you never know who might be on the next table.
