Hampstead is a lovely family friendly area of North West London. It is known for its graceful Victorian conversion homes, chic residents and a small but lively high street. It is very safe and is a preferred spot for affluent families due to its proximity to Hampstead Heath and great schools. This doesn't mean it is a dull area as you are very close to Camden and Central London. Just hop on to the Northern Line and you will be in Leicester Square, Charing Cross within 15 mins. There are loads of restaurants on our local high street - try the sour dough pizza at Franco Manca (a must do when in London) or have tapas at Jamon Jamon. Walk over to my favourite Indian restaurant called Hazara in Belsize Village. Which is also incidentally the best place for bagel's at Roni's. For breakfast, you can try Gail's. They do amazing picnic and finger foods, brunch and salads. There are lots more restaurants up on Hampstead High Street if you feel like walking up - if you do, you must try the crepes at the famous La Creperie on Hampstead High Street. Btw this street is where we Hampstead ladies get our fashion fix from - they have Maje, Sandro, Reiss and Whistles all lined up there! For a cute and romantic evening, why not watch a movie at the local Everyman Cinema. They serve cocktails and snacks at your seat and you can cosy up with a blanket while you watch the show. There is a large super market called Budgens around the corner that sells everything from fresh meat, fish and cheeses to sushi. I also recommend trying the smaller Pomona for healthy and organic foods. On a sunny day, I highly recommend going down to Hampstead Heath and splashing around the "human" bathing ponds (not the be confused with the dog bathing ponds). If you are done with all the local stuff, take the tube to Camden for live music at the Blues Kitchen or shop for trinkets at the Camden Lock Market. Parents can take their kids to the London Zoo which is only 15 mins away.
The closest tube stations are Hampstead and Belsize Park and both are only 7-8 mins walk from the flat. Both stations are on the Northern Line which takes you straight to Camden, Kings Cross, Charing Cross, Euston, Leicester Square and Waterloo. I would recommend using Belsize Park as the walk up to Hampstead is more steep. If you are coming from Heathrow, then I would recommend taking an Uber straight home.
Other things to note
Home truths which you may want to keep in mind: - the flat is on the top floor and there is no elevator in the building - there is no aircon in the flat just like 99.9% of all London's flat. - Bed 3 is a sofa bed, but a lovely, private room with a balcony.
