When people think of London, Hampstead is often one of the first places that pops into their heads. That's for a good reason: Hampstead is an exclusive suburb of the City of London - its streets are lined with old Victorian-era properties, as well as the odd ultra-modern apartment building. It's a really popular place to live - especially with those that work in the centre of London.
One of the most popular places in Hampstead - and the subject of Cockney rhyming slang for "teeth" - is the wide-open space at Hampstead Heath. It's an expansive space of parkland - perfect for a picnic in the summer or a brisk walk in the colder winter months. There are few large, green spaces for recreation in the densely populated centre of London, which is one of the reasons why people flock to live in Hampstead.
The exclusivity of Hampstead is reinforced by the fact that so many wealthy individuals live there - in fact Hampstead Village has the highest concentration of millionaires found anywhere in the UK! From famous footballers to movie stars, anyone who's anyone has a property in Hampstead.
Hampstead has many strings to its bow - one of the biggest assets is obviously its location. As Hampstead is just four miles from Charing Cross it benefits from great transport links to the rest of London by bus, train and road. Hampstead is one of the real jewels in London's crown - it's undoubtedly a great place to live.
