Download the Hampstead Heath 2016/17 Diary (1MB) to find out about all of the Heath's facilities, sports, children's activities and events.

Hampstead Heath is one of London's most popular open spaces, situated just six kilometres from Trafalgar Square.

An island of beautiful countryside, the magic of Hampstead Heath lies not only in its rich wildlife and extensive sports and recreational opportunities, but also in its proximity and accessibility to millions of people.

There is a zoo, an athletics track, an education centre, extensive children's facilities, three swimming ponds and a Lido.

We are currently planning expanded public consultations regarding our café facilities. For more information, please see our News page.

Biodiversity in the city

Hampstead Heath's mosaic of habitats provides a resource for wildlife just six kilometres from the centre of London. It is of national as well as regional importance. The City of London aims to maintain and extend the Heath's status as one of London's best places for wildlife. Hampstead Heath features a number of priority species identified in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.


Hampstead Heath provides excellent facilities for organised sport. With a lack of open space in surrounding densely populated boroughs, Hampstead Heath has a crucial role to play in providing sporting opportunities and promoting good health.
