Belsize Park area guide
As the route leading up to London’s famous hilltop Heath steepens, it passes through Belsize Park, a neighbourhood blessed with tree-lined streets, quaint pubs and stunning period architecture. Residents here can enjoy a quintessential North London work/life balance, free from the weekend crowds that descend on neighbouring Hampstead. Three main focal points make up this Tube fare zone 2 district: the boutique Everman cinema and shops that line Haverstock Hill, the artisan eateries, clustered around Belsize Village and the characterful pubs in England’s Lane.
Close enough to both eclectic Camden Town and scenic Primrose Hill, Belsize Park has its own arts centre, award-winning library and plenty of specialist book shops. Many of London’s leading independent schools are within easy walking distance and the Northern Line Underground links directly to both the West End and the City. Popular with creatives and members of the literary profession, Belsize Park’s NW3 location will, nevertheless be attractive to corporate high flyers and wealthy young families.
