Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre

One of London’s best gyms, which includes a pool, climbing wall, squash courts and loads of machines and classes, is just a 15 walk away – cheap membership too since you live in the borough.

Food and drink

You could eat in a different West Hampstead eatery every night for a month. Here, variety is the spice of life – Italian, Japanese, Indian, Thai – the list goes on.


Just off the high street on Broadhurst Gardens, this authentic Italian joint has the best pizza in the area and is a foodies heaven.

La Brocca

It’s a lively bar upstairs and a solid Italian restaurant downstairs. They’ll probably have the football on if there’s a match on, but somehow it still works.

Sushi Bar Gen

Cheap, cheerful, tiny and delicious, this hole in the wall pumps out the freshest sushi at a very good price.
