What locals say about Belsize Park

  1. Lots of cafes, easy access to central London, quiet and beautiful area with lots of period homes, gardens and plants.

  2. The eclectic stucco architecture and numerous trees in the area, the proximity to wide green spaces such as Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath. The fact that Belsize Park has three distinct focal shopping disctricts in Englands lane, Haverstock Hill and Steeles Village, and Belsize Village make it a cosmopolitan and trendy area. The convenience of being so close to the City makes the area extremely desirable, not to mention you can indulge in the odd, lucky dose of celebrity spotting...
