There’s something so magical about Hampstead Pergola. Hampstead is a beautiful place anyway and it’s so amazing to go up on the Heath and know that you’re only 20 minutes outside of central London, yet it’s green and fresh and beautiful. It’s like another world, or at least another county.
But the Pergola and Hill Gardens are like Narnia, and Hampstead is the wardrobe.
Of course, loving ruined and Victorian things like Satis House and Manderley as I do, it’s like a scene out of my wildest historical fantasies. I feel like Mary Lennox discovering the secret garden (which incidentally is another of my favourite books).
More photos (with the DSLR, not the compact) coming soon, after my London birthday trip! ❤
