Bleak House Guide January | Hampstead
January's Bleak House Guide is literary amble high up above the city in Hampstead. Elegant Georgian townhouses and Victorian cottages wear their blue plaques with pride and the atmospheric graveyards and cosy pubs more quietly show off their historical credentials in this famous part of London.
The walk begins and ends at Hampstead Heath overground station but you can start at Hampstead tube if you prefer. The walk is best done on a Sunday lunchtime where you can stop at the Holly Bush, the Wells or the Flask Inn for a roast dinner and a pint to warm up afterwards in front of the fire.
