Enjoy the view from Primrose Hill – Every day
Primrose Hill offers one of the finest views of London from anywhere in the city. When you first clap eyes on it it doesn’t seem that high, but once you start the short trek to the top you realise that it’s steeper than it looks! When you finally get to the summit you can enjoy an uninterrupted view from the London Eye to Canary Wharf.
See London’s skyline from Parliament Hill – Every day
Parliament Hill’s fame today rests on its spectacular views of London’s skyline. At a height of 98 metres it is the tallest point on Hampstead Heath and offers unbeatable views of the city. You can enjoy a vista that takes in the London Eye, St Paul’s, the Gherkin, Canary Wharf and everything in between.
Guided tour of Highgate Cemetery – Every day
Highgate Cemetery’s grandiose layout contains some of the most flamboyant tombs in London. At first sight it might seem that the cemetery has fallen into disrepair, but the overgrown graves lend an atmosphere that no other cemetery can match. Famous graves include those of Charles Dickens’ family (although not the novelist himself, who is buried in Westminster Abbey), Michael Faraday and Lucian Freud.
