London Episode 17 Hampstead and Highgate

London Episode 17 Hampstead and Highgate

A two-stop tour of north London.  Firstly, pretty Hampstead, where Virginia Woolf thought 'it is always spring': lanes and cottages, cafes, antique shops and museums, including the house where John Keats spent his last 2 years in England.  And not forgetting its spy connections. Then off to nearby Highgate Cemetery in search of gothic vibes and some famous tombs.  (Hampstead Museum)  (Freud Museum)  (London Walks)
