Hampstead is established as the prime residential location to live in North London. Its unique atmosphere, history and close proximity to the centre of the city and access to the wide open spaces of the Heath make it a much sought after location. Hampstead today is a colourful blend of the old and new. At its heart it retains the feel of a village community, but at the same time it is within easy reach of central London. Its tree lined streets, fashionable restaurants and bars, boutique shops and main high street names with the proximity to the Heath have established Hampstead as one of the loveliest places to live.
