  London's Heath
by purplekedi

The heath is full of secret gardens and you can spend a full day exploring the 791 acres of woodland. There are several ponds, -one which you can swim- horse-riding circuit, adventure playground, play equipment and activities for under-fives. There are also deer and animal enclosures with a variety of animals and birds, including flamingoes!

You can also enjoy lakeside concerts near the famous Kenwood House which is neo-classical mansion over looking the park.

I always loved entering the Heath from the dge of the park, where the Kenwood House is. It's such a beautiful entrance and walk , it does feel like a children's tale.

Visit the cafe at the Kenwood House with its beautiful surroundings while you're there.

Oh, and don't saty roaming around after dark. It's a huge place, it'll be pitch dark and the gates will have been locked.
