The cobbled mewses of Belsize Park form delightful backdrops for stunning properties...

What locals say about NW3

  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. It offers a great selection of family-friendly restaurants and shops, along with close proximity to Primrose Hill, Regent's Part and Hampstead Heath.

  3. The area is safe, therefore it's best for living as a family.

  4. It is the most historical, splendid neighbourhood in London. With it's architectural variation and beauty, the close proximity to the Heath, the eclectic mix of residents and the close proximity to so many other great areas it dazzles the senses.

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

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

  7. 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...

The creation station at JW3

JW3
We all want our children to explore their creativity, but the mess and stress of doing it yourself at home can be tricky. These classes provide the perfect solution for all your child's creative needs; inspiring their imaginations while helping you to have fun with them too. Classes follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. Each term is themed around texture, colour or shapes and by the end of each class, the children get to proudly take home their achievements. This term we will explore the World of Shapes and making some wonderful special occasion crafts for Shavuot and Father's Day. And you'll enjoy doing something lovely alongside your little one, while they draw, paint and make. For ages 1-5. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Website
