One of the hills is called Parliament Hill. It overviews the City in all it’s glory. And, if you think that London is huge, you’ll be surprised to find out that you can walk from Hampstead Heath to Soho in just 1 hour 20 minutes. But if you don’t feel like that, there are plenty of local amusements to visit. It’s one of the poshest London areas, with it’s apartment no less than a million £ worth.

    Top 5 Noteworthy Architectural Details

    A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity.

It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
