Join Oldie editor Harry Mount for a Georgian walk round Hampstead
Tucked away on the northern hills of London, Hampstead – and its enchanted, winding streets – has been insulated from the demolition craze in the metropolis below. The village boomed in the Georgian era thanks to its health-boosting natural wells, and much of it has been left untouched since. Its collection of 18th century cottages, terraced houses and villas make it the best-preserved Georgian village in the city. Oldie editor and author Harry Mount will take you on a walk round Hampstead’s hidden gems, finishing at one of the best of them, Fenton House.
