Hampstead Heath's Edwardian Pergola Trail and Hill Garden (Camden)
Tucked inside Zone 2, less than four miles from the city centre, Londoners have been rambling the Heath and gasping at the hilltop views for over 200 years.
While there are multiple pathways and highlights, we suggest aiming for the exquisite Edwardian Pergola, found by starting your journey from Golder Hill Park in West Heath, one of the highest points in the area. Follow the aptly named Pergola trail to arrive at the little-known Pergola and Hill Garden, certain to be resplendent in late spring and summer. Be certain to round out your walk by taking in Sandy Heath, a unique landscape full of bogs and hollows.
