Most beautiful neighbourhoods of London

Updated: Aug 29, 2020

London is never short of charming neighbourhoods. Victorian terrace houses in pastel hues, historical buildings, century old pubs, all add to the charm of some of the most beautiful neighbourhoods.


When you head out to explore these neighbourhoods, do keep in mind that these are the homes of people, so be careful not to be an intrusion to their privacy and be mindful of your actions when you are there.

1. Hampstead

Flask Walk is street which is a short walk from Hampstead high street, and is dotted with cute shops, second hand book shops, and even magic shops. The road from here towards Hampstead Heath takes you through a neighbourhood of beautiful homes.
