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...

Creative Wiz Kids-PARENT-CARER/TODDLER GROUPS

St Peters
The Philosophy at Creative Wiz Kids is a simple one. Children are all natural artists and learn best in a relaxed unpressured environment. At Creative Wiz kids the emphasis is on the artistic process not on the finished product. Although our Wiz Kids have produced lovely work, it is in the process of "making" be it Art, Dancing or Acting where children gain the most benefit. Great Emphasis is placed on play and fun. In an increasingly hurried world, we at CWK believe it is essential that children are allowed and encouraged to enjoy the play and pleasures of childhood. Website
