Popular and sprawling, Hampstead Heath isn’t necessarily the perfect spot for some secluded alone time. Instead, visit this surprising remnant of faded grandeur on the West Heath where you’ll be able to truly find some pleasure. There are impressive gardens overgrown with vines and wisteria, but it’s the raised walkway with its overhanging canopy that makes this spot magical, spiriting you away from everyday life. Soak up the stunning views of the Heath and Hampstead Hill Gardens, indulge in a sweet treat (Galaxy® wholeheartedly recommended) and let yourself relax.
Is there anything more pleasurable than a quiet moment surrounded by nature? Taking a moment out of your busy day to breathe in deeply, take in the beauty of the world around you and organise your thoughts can help de-stress. It’s a good thing, then, that London isn’t short on gloriously green parks. And while the big-hitters like Hyde Park, Clapham Common and Victoria Park are all stunning, it’s the hidden oases, both inside and outdoors, which make up some of the capital’s best leafy spots for a sit and a think. So choose pleasure and treat yourself to a calming moment amongst nature.
