The eastern section of the Pergola is closed while it awaits some essential maintenance work. The Hill Garden and remainder of the Pergola will remain open as usual.

The Pergola is one of the hidden delights of Hampstead Heath. It overlooks West Heath, and was the dream of William H Lever, later Lord Leverhulme, a wealthy idealist, patron of the arts, architecture and landscape gardening; and Thomas Mawson, the celebrated landscape architect.

The Hill Garden is a beautiful, landscaped garden which was the private garden of a now demolished manor house.

Weddings, civil partnerships and filming

Both of these venues can be used for weddings and for photo shoots.
