The most appealing thing about Parliament Hill, on the southern edge of the Heath, is that the view changes daily in its visibility levels: on bright mornings the outline of the Kentish Downs is clear; on darker days, you can barely make out the Millennium Wheel. And sometimes, there’s just a thick duvet of cloud.
Last night an LA-style smog shrouded the capital, with the top of the Shard disappearing into the heavens. Nonetheless the hazy scene was lapped up by joggers, lovers, picknickers, cyclists, and boozers alike.
We can’t guarantee it’ll be either as airy, or pleasant, up there tonight; but one thing’s for sure – it’s way more atmospheric, and several degrees cooler, than anywhere else in London right now.
