Tree in Queen's Park

Take our snapshot survey and tell us what you think about Hampstead Heath.

Queen's Park Café

The Queen’s Park Café has now re-opened and will be managed on a short term basis by Hoxton Beach. Patrick and Emma welcome you to join them in the café for some fresh, affordable, delicious food and drinks.

A tender process is now underway for the café and it is expected that a new lease and tenant will be in situ by 13 January 2018.

We apologise for any inconvenience which may have been caused during the period of transition whilst the café was closed.

If you are interested in expressing an interest in the Queen’s Park Café, please register on the City of London tender portal.

Oak Processionary Moth

Oak Processionary Moth has been identified as having potential to be found within Queen's Park, and the species' caterpillars represent a hazard to visitors as their hairs cause severe rashes.

These caterpillars are most active in spring and summer and are found almost exclusively in oak trees. They are best recognised by their long hairs, tendency to move together in nose-to-tail processions, and the trails of white webbing they leave in trees.

It is important for the public, and their pets, not to touch or approach any nests or caterpillars and, if found, to alert Heath staff on 020 7332 3322 and to then alert the Forestry Commission.
