Right across the road from Number 2, Willow Road is the glorious Hampstead Heath. One of the highest points in London, it covers 790 acres. Within its boundary there are woodlands, ponds, a lido and playgrounds. The South East part of the Heath is home to Parliament Hill, a 322ft high hill with a view across the capital’s skyline. A view that is protected by an act of parliament, on a clear day, visitors can see St. Paul’s, the City of London, Canary Wharf, the Shard and even the Houses of Parliament. It has to be said that the newer glass and steel arrivals do rather spoil the skyline and that the trees below the hill could do with cutting back.
