"Sir Francis Bacon, in proving his theory that meat could be preserved by keeping it cold, plucked a chicken and stuffed it with snow. Unfortunately, he caught pneumonia from the experiment and died shortly after, yet it is sightings of a ghostly chicken that have been reported in the Highgate area."

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

Peeking out from behind the trees in Waterlow Park is an impressive view of London.

About Highgate

Highgate is an area of North London on the north-eastern corner of Hampstead Heath. The area is characterised by many green expanses including three ancient woods, a park and a famous cemetery. At its centre is Highgate village, a collection of largely Georgian shops, pubs, restaurants and residential streets, interspersed with diverse landmarks such as Highgate School (1565), the Gatehouse inn dating from 1670 and Berthold Lubetkin's 1930s Highpoint buildings. The village sits atop a hill which provides views across London, climbing 375 feet (114 m) above sea level at its highest point. Highgate is one of the most expensive London suburbs in which to live. It has an active conservation body, the Highgate Society, to protect its character. The area is divided between three London boroughs: Haringey in the north, Camden in the south and west, and Islington in the south and east. The postal district is N6.
