Rhododendrons and azaleas blaze with colour in the Flower Garden at Kenwood House, northern corner of Hampstead Heath.
The 112 acres of Kenwood House is on the crest of one of the most popular open spaces in the London, Hampstead Heath. In contrast to the natural Heath, the park around Kenwood House is very much a designed landscape in an English style.
You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens at Kenwood House. No BBQs though.
Plenty of space for children and families to relax, or let off steam. Kites allowed.
The Goodison Fountain in Hampstead Heath, London. This is not one of your typical recirculating chlorinated fountains, the water is free running and rich in iron. The Goodison Fountain should not be confused with the Grecian Fountain which is located in Hampsted Heath Extension.
The words around the Goodison Fountain read: "This fountain, erected in 1929 to the memory of Henry Edmund Goodison of Highgate, honorary treasurer of the Ken Wood Preservation council, was presented by his wife and sons". The fountain is situated at the bottom of the upper Cohen's Field, just by Millfield Lane.
