Impact of latest Lockdown on the Heath

Hampstead Heath remains open.
Due to increased visitor numbers and wet weather, the ground conditions are very muddy. Please bear this in mind when planning your visit. (You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble. This should be limited to once per day.)
Public toilets are open (although toilets within facilities, such as the Athletics’ Track, are closed). Please ensure you wear a face mask when entering and using the toilets. There are frequently long queues to access the toilets, which will be closed at set intervals throughout the day to allow staff to clean and re-stock supplies.
Please take your litter and waste away with you and dispose of it at home. Litter and dog waste bins are still being emptied. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Heath Staff to maintain vehicle access across the sites as the paths are very busy which impacts waste collection arrangements.
The car parks remain open but are very busy, especially at weekends.
Opening hours remain as advertised (including the Hill Garden & Pergola).
Playgrounds across the sites are open. Cafés are providing a takeaway service, but Café outdoor seating areas are not available.
In line with the National Lockdown, the following facilities have been closed:
• The Parliament Hill Athletics Track
• Tennis courts at Parliament Hill, Golders Hill Park
• The Parliament Hill Fields Lido
• The Hampstead Heath Bathing Ponds
• The Peggy Jay Centre
• Outdoor Gym equipment at Parliament Hill
Licensed Events, such as Be Military Fit and the Winter Swimming Club are also suspended during the National Lockdown.
