Relieved to get outside after a torturous Northern Line journey to Hampstead. 9 others were waiting and off we set. We meandered through the Heath, chatting and enjoying the sunshine. We were thwarted from entering the grounds of Kenwood House as an event was taking place there. (House Festival not quite clear from their website what it was all about. Organised by the Soho House group and Youtube with proceeds going to Kenwood House and Unicef. Nile Rodgers & Chic were the headline act.)

6 of us decided to stop at the Spaniards Inn for a drink to take advantage of their outdoor space. A couple of others who were a bit ahead made their way to the Holly Bush. We were reunited later near the station. A few of us grabbed an ice cream for the journey from the gelateria someone had spotted on Flask Lane at the beginning of the walk.

Nice evening, as always.

Evening Walk - Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath
Distance: 7km
Meet 19:15 prompt outside Waterstones, 68-69 Hampstead High Street. This is a self-led walk across Hampstead Heath, Destination Holly Bush, 22 Holly Mount. NW3 6SG. T=short.15
Intend going.
Are there any directions for this "self led" walk? The OS Map shows a map of the Heath with an icon on the wrong station (Hampstead Heath overground) but no route. I realise that in practice DAC will show us the way but a rough idea of the route might help any latecomers to catch up.
PS. Are the evening walks moving to Thursday now, or is this just a one off?
Sorry, ignore first comment. Not sure what happened the page didn't seem to display fully but it's OK now.

Not really, (some) could not make Wednesday and the forecast better. Will also work around future tube strikes. Next one planned for Wed 5th August.

2 hot and sunny Enjoyable walk across the heath.
