  WHAT’S LIVING IN Belsize Park LIKE?

Located between two vey different worlds, with young Camden to one side and sophisticated and ritzy Hampstead to the other, Belsize Park is a great neighborhood that's home to professionals, families, and even a few famous faces. Everything seems to be manicured and picture-perfect here: the streets are lined with trees and extra wide sidewalks for dogs and strollers. A big attraction for the resident families is the concentration of top rated schools.

The neighborhood is full of Victorian- and Craftsman-style homes that are in great condition. Many of these have been converted into two- or three-bedroom flats, though there are some individual homes that can still be found. You will have to jump on those quckly because competition for housing here is intense.

Many people who move here absolutely love it because there is such an strong community feel and everyone really takes care of each other here. You will know your neighbors, and their pets, and you will wave at almost everyone you pass. That is just how it’s done here.

Walking is a huge part of this community and there are green spaces everywhere. If you are more of a cyclist, the roads here are safe and allow you to take a ride to the top of Primrose Hill to see one of the most spectacular views in all of London. There is also a tube station nearby for commuters.

The entire community centers around England’s Lane, a picturesque part of town that is filled with boutiques, shops, and cafes. Local amenities include delis, butchers, a library, gyms, post office, swimming pools, tennis courts, athletic track, and spas. For foodies, there are plenty of neighborhood restaurants and bars which means you won’t have to venture far. There is a healthy cinema community here, including an arthouse theater and an indie theater.

Belsize Park is bordered on the north by Hampstead and Gospel Oak, on the east by Kentish Town, on the south by Chalk Farm and Primrose Hill, and on the west by Frognal.
