Parliament Hill

Hampstead
Famous for its iconic views over London, Parliament Hill is capable of reviving even the most jaded Londoner, and on a clear day, you'll have to tiptoe over tourists and locals lounging on the grass and admiring landmarks (The Gherkin, St Paul's) among the numerous tower blocks. Originally a point of defence during the English Civil War, it was named after the troops loyal to Parliament and was often referred to as Traitor's Hill. More recently, the land (occupying a south eastern spot within Hampstead Heath) was used to rear livestock for Smithfield Market (until the 1940s), as well as a sportsground for cross-country, a film location and a popular place to fly kites. The surrounding Parliament Fields also play host to a regular farmers' market and house a public lido. Parliament Hill sports a state-of-the-art adventure playground, still looking spanking new after its award-winning refurb. The imaginative equipment is designed to challenge children rather than keep them boringly safe, and there’s also a huge and popular paddling pool.

Please be aware there is NO REFUND POLICY AND NO RE-ADMISSION POLICY the cafe its very dirty, there is loads of rubbish around and the whole place falls below the standard levels of hygienic . there is no chairs to sit so people sit on the floors. please if you go and you are concern with health and safety communicate with the concil and speak to the manager who is very friendly. I suugest you take folded chairs and your own food if you feel that there is an issue once in, speak directly to the manager as you will be instantly rejected by the cashier. this places has a lot of potential and the council should be doing more to improve the place and offer value for money
