Hampstead Town
Referred to in the 1086 Domesday book, Hampstead blossomed into a fashionable and popular spa village, where people came to enjoy the medicinal benefits of the water. It was both then, and now, home to many famous names, including Keats, Robert Louis Stevenson and Edward Elgar. Hampstead still retains much village-like charm and atmosphere in its narrow winding streets, traditional pubs and in the chic boutiques and cafes of the High Street. A particular allure is the huge stretch of green space Hampstead Heath, with the Vale of Health, Hampstead Ponds and much of its forested area falling within the ward.
