Hampstead Heath

My boyfriend’s parents were in town for the week and we wanted to show them an area of London that they haven’t seen before, so we took them to Hampstead for some afternoon tea.

We went to Maison Blanc on Hampstead High Street. Now, I didn’t go for the traditional English tea menu, but ordered the French version of English tea desserts.

Hampstead Heath is a huge park (over 300 hectares) with ponds, wildlife, basically everything the heart desires. The highest point is called Parliament Hill.

And running down the hill is fun too!

We strolled around the park until it was getting cold and time to go home for dinner.

I really love this park and could easily spend a day just wandering around. Have you ever been to Hampstead Heath? What is your favorite park in London?
