Attractions and days out in London
You can play football with Venezuelans or tennis with toffs on this verdant chunk of south London that saw off competition Hyde, Regent’s, Green and St James’s parks, but a large group of the Clapham Common recommendations were for simply having a lazy drink on the grass outside The Windmill, queen of the South Side’s watering places. And we’re not going to argue with that.
Head to the north of the capital and take at dip at Hampstead Ponds. The men's and ladies' are open all year round but to use the mixed pond in the winter season you must join the Hampstead Heath Winter Swimming Club. With green and leafy surroundings the ponds make for a serene swim, but be warned: even in the summer the water is chilly.
