London Area Guides

History of Belsize Park

Belsize Park is part of the Hampstead area also bordering Kentish Town to the east, and Primrose Hill to the south.

Although not specifically named on the Geographers' London Atlas, the area has many thoroughfares bearing the name: Belsize Avenue, Belsize Court, Belsize Crescent, Belsize Gardens, Belsize Grove, Belsize Lane, Belsize Mews, Belsize Park (the road itself), Belsize Park Gardens, Belsize Place, Belsize Square, and Belsize Terrace. The name comes from the original 17th century manor house and parkland (built by Daniel O'Neill for his wife, the Countess of Chesterfield) which stood on the site. The estate built up between 1852 and 1878, by which time it extended to Haverstock Hill. After World War I, the construction of blocks of flats began, and now a great many of the larger houses are also converted as such.

In World War II, one of the large underground air-raid shelters was located here.

It is an affluent area and there are many restaurants, pubs and cafés along Haverstock Hill and also England's Lane. It is more spacious than Hampstead Village, with wider roads. Hampstead Heath is a 10-12 minutes' walk. Primrose Hill Park is 2 minutes from England's Lane and provides some of the best views of Central London.

The area has a great choice of flats and town houses and with its many restaurants and bars, its closeness to Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill makes it a highly desirable area.
