London Hampstead Walking Tour

Meet your guide near Hampstead tube station in the early afternoon, then set off through the cobbled streets to begin your walking tour. Widely considered among the UK capital’s prettiest districts, Hampstead boasts traditional pubs, quaint boutiques, and plenty of London character. On your 2-hour tour, admire centuries-old Georgian homes once lived in by great writers, poets, and painters such as H.G. Wells, John Keats, Robert Louis Stevenson, George du Maurier, John Constable, John Galsworthy, D.H. Lawrence, and Katherine Mansfield. Discover historic churches, pass pubs dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, and see the house where the most famous playwright of his day — Oscar Wilde — spent much of his time. As you explore, gain insight into the area’s history and see what sets Hampstead apart from other corners of the capital. Head up to Hampstead Heath — an area of rolling woodlands and meadows made famous by the art of John Constable — and admire sweeping views over the capital’s skyline from your vantage point on the hillside. After around two hours exploring the streets and parks of Hampstead, return to central Hampstead to conclude your tour.
