The Pergola and Hill Garden is one of my favourite places in London. It's a beautiful garden with a tranquil, secretive feel to it, hidden away in the western part of Hampstead Heath, between Hampstead and Golders Green. Golders Hill Park is close-by.
The Pergola is a large Edwardian structure built in the early 20th century: A raised terraced and colonnaded walkway, constructed to connect the two gardens belonging to a house then known as The Hill, which were separated by a footpath with public right-of-way.
The Hill Garden, a little park with a formal pond, gently sloping lawns and many benches to sit, is the garden that is farther away from the house; it is, like the Pergola, open to the public. The house, now called Inverforth House, and its adjoining garden are privately owned. In this shot blue and magenta colour were disaturated.
