Two children examine bugs on the Heath at a learning event

Go wild with the children on Hampstead Heath and learn about nature at the same time!

Learning in London

Hampstead Heath is as close to countryside as you can get in London with expanses of grasslands and woodlands perfect for exploring – making it the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

To help you discover the amazing nature on Hampstead Heath, we offer:

  • Hands-on, minds-on school sessions for all key stages
  • Fun, sensory play activities perfect for little ones discovering the natural world
  • Youth-focused nature crafts and activities for getting your teenagers out of the house
  • Exciting events for all ages such as our popular bat walks
  • Opportunities to get involved through volunteering as a Wildlife Champion, on one of our learning projects or get your hands dirty as a conservation volunteer.

Learn more on the our families page and our schools page.


For details of all our family learning events this half-term, please see our learning for families page.

Do you work with an established community centre, nursery of under-fives play group? If so, please get in touch about our new Playing Wild project on Hampstead Heath by emailing the Heath Education Team.
