The grassy sprawl of Hampstead Heath makes the perfect setting for a rural walk on a chilly day. Do a loop of the wild green space before stomping up to the dizzying heights of Parliament Hill to gaze at the city skyline, or swing a kite around if the weather is breezy enough.
Yes it's cold out. Yes the trees are fairly bare. But we're lucky to have some amazing parks in London, and walking around in them is genuinely one of life’s great joys. So get out there and enjoy some bracing green space.
