Your guide to public transport in Hampstead

Why Hampstead is a great place to live for travelling in and around London.

Hampstead is on the Northern line which runs from north to South London, with two northern branches as well as two southern branches, meaning that it serves two different routes through central London.

This efficient underground line can take you from Hampstead to bustling Leicester Square in only 14 minutes, or Waterloo Station in only 19 minutes with overground connections to a number of major towns and cities across the south and south west, including Bournemouth, Guildford, Portsmouth, Southampton, Windsor and many more destinations.

Perhaps if you fancy a bit of glamour, you could take the Northern line to Green Park in only 14 minutes where you can enjoy afternoon tea at The Ritz, or even get some luxury food items from Fortnum and Mason to enjoy.

The bus routes in the area are also fantastic and connect Hampstead to many popular areas of London. Fitzjohn’s Avenue is served by the number 46 bus, which stops at places such as Paddington Station, Camden Town, St. Johns Wood, Kings Cross Station and Holborn. The N5 bus which also serves Hampstead travels to Euston Station and Trafalgar Square among many other locations.

Hampstead is very well located and in close proximity to many attractions around the capital. For instance, it is only a 30 minute walk to the trendy Camden Market, or a 40-minute walk to Baker Street where you can visit Madam Tussauds wax museum and the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Maida Vale is a 30 minute walk away where you can take a boat trip down the Little Venice waterway and stroll along its tree-lined footpaths.

Hampstead is the perfect location to enjoy a village lifestyle whilst being so well connected to central London- with so many transport options, it really is a great place to live.
