Hampstead Heath - a Luxurious Refuge Near London for Poets, Artists and Dreamers
Местоположение: Hampstead Heath
Адрес: Hampstead Heath
Welcome to Hampstead Heath, a little corner of paradise where, one Sunday over a century ago, you could even see Karl Marx taking a stroll, along with poets, intellectuals and simple dreamers, all looking for a tiny refuge in which to enjoy a few minutes of silence. Around the park is the village of the same name which was a favourite destination for personalities like Sigmund Freud, T. S. Eliot, Robert Louis Stevenson and H. G. Wells. Hampstead Village was also home to writer P. L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins, who envisioned the roof of the Admiral’s House as home to the eccentric Admiral Boom. Hampstead Heath is also a perfect place for sports with a running track, an education centre, plenty of spaces created expressly for children, three wading pools and even a beach club.
The dining halls of the V&A are over 150 years old. Designed by stars of interior design of the 1800s, it transformed the experience of visiting the museum and was well ahead of its time in respect to the rest of the world.
