What locals say about South Hampstead

  1. South Hampstead is a fantastic area to live in. Its closeness to the green spaces of Primrose Hill, Hampstead Heath and Regent's Park and its superb transport links, Waitrose and all the other High Street shops on the Finchley Road. One of its greatest assets though is the incredible cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere. You can hear English; Russian, Polish, French, Japanese, Chinese and American English yes, its all here. As my property, bought for a song years ago is now approaching a couple of Million, I'm considering down-sizing but definitely staying in South Hampstead
