Hampstead Heath, London

{The Heath inspired C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe}
A dreamy place to stroll...

To run...

Fly a kite or take-in vistas of London...

{Kenwood House Museum, Hampstead Heath}
View art in a beautiful setting...

Even bathe in open-air ponds!


Or get lost (happens to me a lot) and daydream away.

P.S. While in Hampstead, don't forget the Hampstead crepe stand...
Or, if you fancy a pint, The Flask pub...

I didn't know that the Heath inspired the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I could totally see it the moment I looked at the picture. Very cool.

C.S. Lewis is my daughter's favorite author - must see if she knew this little tidbit. What a place. Simply magical. I can see why it was so inspiring and have now put it on my places to visit next England trip. Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful pics ;) I'd really like to go back to London some day soon. AND is that a crepe stand that I see???......Now I have no choice but to go.

How gorgeous! The Heath really would be a wonderful place to run... and get lost in thoughts! I love running through trails and away from the city, so that I could get away from the hustle and bustle of life. This looks like an awesome escape!

Brandi said...

Jaw-droppinly gorgeous. I would love to get on a plane right now and spend a whole week enjoying this beautiful location. That wood would be first on my list of places to visit -- and then I'd have to stop for a crepe, of course!
