London is the place where you can be surprised no matter where you look and this time, my amazement came from The Pergola and Hill Gardens in Hampstead. I decided to go for a walk, as it’s not far from where I live, and my boyfriend joined me in adventure. For those of you that don’t know, the Pergola is Lord Leverhulme’s dream and created by Thomas Mawson, created as an Edwardian extravagance in order to attract more attention over The Hill and for garden parties and strolls.
The construction of The Pergola was finished in 1925 and ever since has remained a constant attraction for those strolling around in Golders Green or Hampstead. It offers a delightful atmosphere for those seeking peace and a get-away from the City’s busy radiance and everyone falls in love with the surroundings as they see it.
My first experience with The Pergola was random; I went running in Golders Hill Park and ended up going uphill, and there it was, imposing and majestic, almost calling me to go and have a look. It is a magnificent place if you want to read or write, to walk with your girlfriend and, why not, propose to her there!
I invite you as well to have a look through the photos I took and hopefully, convince you to go as well!
( Sorry for the cheesy photos with my boyfriend, ha!)
