Hampstead Heath is one of the most popular spots in North London for people and pooches alike, with 800 acres to explore together.

Walking your dog on the Heath

There are a few little rules you should follow while walking your dog on the Heath. Please make sure you:

  • keep your dog under control at all times
    • your dog must respond if you call it when it's off the lead
  • keep a collar and tag on your dog
  • pick up after your dog
    • all dog poo should be bagged and put in a dog poo bin or taken home
  • consider other visitors, especially children and picnickers
    • put your dog on the lead if you need to

You can be fined if your dog isn't under control and either hurts, annoys or disturbs other people; or if it damages the Heath.
