Parliament Hill is a high point of 322 feet (98 metres) on the southern side of Hampstead Heath. It is said to be named because it was part of the London defences for Parliamentary Forces during the English Civil War in the 17th century. Now it is better known for its views over central London and for kite-flying. There is a viewpoint indicator which identifies landmark buildings to the south. To the north-east is an attractive view of neighbouring Highgate.
