The walk explores one of London’s best known and loved open spaces. It ascends the viewpoint of Parliament Hill, skirts the edges of the Heath before affording the chance to visit one of Britain’s most important art collections.

It then plunges into the heart of the Heath before emerging by the Whitestone Pond, and returns to the start via some delightful streets.
