With the heath, ponds, the connection to Keats and its quaint villagey charm, it's no surprise that Hampstead is home to a number of delightfully British pubs. In among the grand houses, independent coffee spots, boutique shops and the famous La Crêperie de Hampstead, the area boasts some quality boozers, many offering spacious beer gardens, and even the odd cocktail bar, perfect for that post-pond swim.
Pop into the Spaniards Inn, a favourite of Keats and Dickens, for a taste of history or head to the Garden Gate, with its huge beer garden, for any sociable occasion. And if you're after an expertly made cocktail, the Wells, tucked down a residential street, is a must. Wherever you head, Hampstead is the perfect place to wet your whistle.
