This picturesque walk, accessible via the Underground, ventures through a swath of greenbelt land. This serene expanse was saved from London's 1930s suburban sprawl thanks to the tireless efforts of local residents. Now, this countryside section seamlessly melds into the so-called Northern Heights, positioned above the renowned areas of Hampstead and Highgate.

During your journey, there's a vantage point where you can gaze down upon the majestic Alexandra Palace and Highgate Hill, almost believing that the entire expanse between them remains untouched countryside.

Dog Walking

Canine companions are welcome on this trail, but they must be leashed.
