Living in Hampstead is a unique and often enchanting experience. This affluent neighbourhood in North London offers a blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, and historical significance that sets it apart from many other parts of the city. 

Hampstead is renowned for its picturesque streets, lush green spaces, and the expansive Hampstead Heath, a large park and nature reserve. Residents can enjoy serene walks in the park, picnics on the heath, and stunning views of London from Parliament Hill. 

The neighbourhood is steeped in history, with its origins dating back to the 17th century. The charming streets are lined with historic homes, some of which date back centuries, creating a unique and timeless atmosphere. 

This area of North London has long been a haven for artists, writers, and intellectuals. It boasts a thriving cultural scene with numerous art galleries, theatres, and literary connections.

The Freud Museum and Keats House are just a couple of the cultural gems in the area. 

Despite its proximity to central London, Hampstead retains a village-like ambiance. 

You’ll find boutique shops, independent cafés, and local markets that give the neighbourhood a cosy and close-knit feel. 

While it has a peaceful and suburban feel, Hampstead is well-connected to the rest of London. The Hampstead Underground station and nearby train stations provide easy access to the city centre. 

Hampstead has a strong sense of community, with local events, festivals, and neighbourhood initiatives bringing residents together. 

 

We are delighted to share with you just some of the places the team at Wayne & Silver love to visit, and we hope you will love them just as much too!

Guacho, Hampstead

A family favourite. Perfect for lunch, dinner and the place to head for Sunday lunch. The contemporary, elegant interior is only slightly surpassed by a beautiful outdoor terrace where there’s a barbecue in the summer and space snuggle with blankets in the winter.

Living in Hampstead is like residing within a timeless masterpiece, where the charm of a bygone era meets the vibrancy of contemporary life.

Hampstead Heath 

London living has much to offer and no more so than in our corner of it. But sometimes it’s good to step away from the hustle and bustle and discover a serene and picturesque place to escape and connect with nature. Hampstead Heath offers all this and more. 

Explore the heath’s numerous walking trails and paths. The area offers stunning views of London, including the iconic city skyline. Don’t miss Parliament Hill for one of the best viewpoints – pack up a picnic basket and make an afternoon of it. 

For those seeking something more energetic, take advantage of the sports facilities, including tennis courts, a running track, and a cricket pitch. You can also play a game of football or rugby on the open fields. 

When the weather is fine, taking a dip in one of the Heath’s swimming ponds is a delightful way to cool off, there’s three to choose from plus the Lido on Parliament Hill which also has a café. 

Whether it’s for sports, nature watching, fun with the kids or four-legged friends or simply somewhere to relax, the Heath is the perfect place to be. 

Kenwood House 

Located on the northern edge of Hampstead Heath is the iconic Kenwood House renowned for its impressive art collection, stunning architecture, and beautiful parkland setting. 

The original house was built in the early 17th century and underwent several renovations and expansions over the years. It was transformed into its current Neoclassical style in the 18th century by Scottish architect Robert Adam. 

Originally a residence for the Earls of Mansfield, it was bequeathed to the nation by Edward Cecil Guinness, the 1st Earl of Iveagh, in 1927 and for this reason, Kenwood House is known also as the Iveagh Bequest. 

Enjoy a leisurely walk through the extensive grounds – there are often outdoor events and concerts held on the lawns. Head back to the tea room for a well-earned refreshment. Entrance is free making it a popular cultural attraction for both locals and tourists.

Another favourite of ours and another Grade II listed pub. The Spaniards was built in 1585 by (oddly enough) two Spanish brothers and now describes itself as, “Discreetly stylish, authentically British”. An excellent range of ales, craft beers and fine wines are on offer to enjoy either in the elegant interior or beautiful garden.

La Crêperie de Hampstead

The bustling, small window-serve La Crêperie has been serving the village for over 40 years with a passion unsurpassed. Founded in 1977 by Chef Extraordinaire Edward De Mesquita, the long queues pay testament to the mouth-watering food that is lovingly prepared. One taste is all you’ll need!

The Old White Bear

After over three hundred years serving Hampstead, new owners hoped to convert the pub into a house. The locals waged (and won!) a six-year-long campaign against the proposals ad in 2021 the pub finally reopened to once again sit proudly at the heart of this community.

The Coffee Cup

One further Hampstead institution to share is The Coffee Cup. For over 50 years, this celebrated coffee lounge has been offering up great tea and coffee as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great Italian food service amid iconic 1960’s styling.
