"The never completed North End station was planned to serve a large residential development planned for Hampstead Heath. This scheme met with universal disdain and was scrapped leaving a partially completed station which was prepared as an emergency shelter during the Cold War."

Hampstead is even prettier when the sun is shining...

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.

Binky's

Hampstead Parish Church
Are you in need of some well deserved me time? Do you feel that your toddler isn't quite ready for full time nursery but would benefit from a caring and stimulating environment to socialise with other children? We know that as a Mum time is precious and that you rarely get time to yourself to do all those things that you used to do like going for a nice haircut or doing a yoga class. Sometimes the thought of leaving your child at nursery for a full day might be daunting and you might feel that you're both not quite ready yet. We believe that providing toddlers with short bite-size sessions will give them a gentle introduction to the nursery environment whilst giving you a chance to tend to personal tasks. Our 2 hour drop off sessions have a strong focus on music and incorporate key EYFS and Montessori methods and equipment to educate stimulate and give children a sense of fun. Website
