Choose from three different walks:
In need of some fresh air and green space? Passing through the Heath Extension and Golders Hill Park, the pink walk is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and getting in touch with the area's rural roots. It also offers a taste of Hampstead Garden Suburb's individual architecture.
Fancy a bite to eat? The orange walk will take you past some of Golders Green's diverse communities, with plenty of places to stop and sample some of the local cuisine.
Feeling reflective? The blue walk features many of the area's religious buildings and offer an introduction to the community's many faiths with lots of places to rest, pause and reflect.
