Why not explore the nearby areas of Highgate, Archway, Dartmouth Park, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Tufnell Park, Hampstead, Hampstead Garden Suburb, Holloway and Finsbury Park

"Highgate cemetery is one of the most famous resting places in London thanks to Karl Marx, but other equally illustrious figures include the novelist Douglas Adams, TV broadcaster Jeremy Beadle and scientist Michael Faraday."

From the ponds to the beautiful views, there is no better place to spend a sunny day than on Hampstead Heath.
