Hampstead High Street Then and Now presented in the images above. Hampstead High Street is the main shopping street in Hampstead. It has some of the most expensive housing in the London area. Hampstead has more millionaires within its boundaries than any other area of the United Kingdom. A famous location in north London.

Hampstead Village is the original urban village with quaint alleyways and perfectly preserved Georgian buildings. It is served by Hampstead underground station, on the Northern Line. The deepest station on the underground network and has, if you are feeling energetic, 320 steps, which is a record. The underground station is located at the corner of Heath Street and High Street. Hampstead has over 75 English Heritage Blue Plaques, which mark and commemorate the many famous and prominent past residents. It is difficult to judge who is the most famous ex-resident of Hampstead, as there are so many to choose from – for example, the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, the novelist John Galsworthy, the poet John Keats, the novelist DH Lawrence and the composer Arthur Bliss.

The best things about Hampstead are the little streets that give the neighborhood its charm. From skinny pathway Mansfield Place to the colorful doors on Holly Walk, it’s worth getting lost for a while. Just around the corner from the Tube station, Flask Walk has a pedestrian-only area with a kaleidoscope of vintage shops, cafes, florists, and pubs. Hampstead is a lovely area, but also quite posh, and I found it quite stuffy at times.
