Read The London Craig blog> Read Craig’s review  I’ve seen this view myself. Check out my London blog for a full review, with photos.  Ask me a question about this event

Parliament Hill got its name during the English Civil War when troops loyal to the cause used it as a base. But it's fame today rests chiefly on its spectacular views of the London skyline.

At a height of 98 metres it is the tallest point on Hampstead Heath and offers unbeatable views of the city. The vista takes in everything from the London Eye and St Paul's Cathedral, to the Gherkin and skyscrapers at Canary Wharf.

You might like to read Craig's review of Parliament Hill on his blog, which includes some more photos of the view, and some advice about how best to get there.

If you enjoy walking up tall hills and admiring the view, then you will probably enjoy a visit to Primrose Hill as well.
