A must for any visitor to London. It’s stunningly beautiful. Fly a kite on Parliament Hill or get lost in the long grass with your summer lover. But what makes it really queer are the bathing ponds, which attract a large gay crowd. You can either sunbathe nude by the water’s edge or in your bathing suit on the grass outside the changing area. The ponds are divided into men’s, women’s, and mixed. It gets very busy and attracts all sorts and all ages. Early morning swims are advised on very hot days. This is the best time, too, to meet friendly, often older, locals who are always up for chats.

My ultimate favorite park in London! With multiple swimming ponds, a forest, wild fields, wild paths, tarmac paths and an amazing view point, this is a stunning place.
huge park with charming Kenwood House and lovely hills giving views over London. They also have a open air swimming pool there in a natural lake (summers only), with separate and mixed swimming areas
This is the place where you want to have a nice walk, quality of space and nature. Kenwood house is welcoming you on the top, from there you can admire the landscape as in a Gainsborough painting. On the top of the Heath there is also an astonishing view of whole London.
