A favourite of local artists, this formal Arts and Crafts garden, created between 1910 and 1925 by Thomas Mawson for soap magnate Lord Leverhulme and restored in the 1990s, is a little-known part of Hampstead Heath. In late spring the raised, covered pergola – as long as Canary Wharf is tall – is festooned with wisteria, but great views of London are to be had at any time of year. Visit during the early evening and you might see roosting long-eared bats.

I have to say thanks to my friend Kate (she never gets a mention in my reviews so let's give her a shout out) because she bought me a book about Secret London, which I was obviously highly sceptical about, I mean what could there possibly be in London that I don't know about?!? Well, hang fire people cos here we go! Just thirty seconds from Hampstead Heath is a Pergola and Hill Garden, and it's so well hidden you could be yards from it and still not actually find it. But you'll be glad you did! Make the effort and you'll find this spectacular Pergola and beautiful gardens with roses wrapping around columns and plants climbing wooden structures. There's real calm in this peaceful place and the views are to die for. My words will not do it justice so just look at the pics and go!
