What locals say about Hampstead

  1. Apart from amazing personal memories, I think it's London's most charming and romantic place. Lovely restaurants, beautiful park, breathtaking mansions and top-class bars. By some country miles, London's best place.

  2. Hampstead is chic but not too snobby. Close to a big park, has restaurants and shops - excellent schools.
