Heath, hills and house prices. Hampstead is famous for all three.

This storied north London enclave reaches some 400 feet above sea level. Its most expensive properties can hit the £30 million mark and it boasts 800 acres of wild park, woodland and meadow.

But those Hampstead numbers only tell part of the story…

The musical numbers that make up this virtual tour reveal much about the makeup of Hampstead, one of London’s most creative neighbourhoods.

Our narrative playlist will draw upon the work of… Canadian troubadour Leonard Cohen & his first novel;  The story of Decca Records in West Hampstead… Bob Dylan sofa surfing & Johnny Rotten squatting in NW3… Phyllis Tate, composer of an opera inspired by the Jack the Ripper case… and the wistful pocket musical Les Bicyclettes de Belsize.

As we pass we’ll meet Hampsteadites from the world of literature, art, media and politics – NW3 is famed for its famous residents in those fields, too.  But for one hour they’ll have to take a back seat to the composers, players and singers – today these Hampstead hills are alive with the sound of music.
