[MAP]

When one of London’s many small squares just won’t do, head to Highgate Wood for an open space that feels more like Narnia than N6. Complete with 28 hectares of ancient woodland, a brilliant adventure playground and a really good cafe, Highgate Wood is the perfect escape from the traffic and pollution of nearby Archway Road.

“My favourite green space in London is definitely Highgate Wood. You’re in there and you don’t feel like you’re in London whatsoever.”
