HAMPSTEAD Heath took a trip back in time to the Edwardian era on Sunday with the fun-filled Whitestone on the Beach event.

Families flocked to Whitestone Pond for the special event which brought the much-loved seaside atmosphere to London.

Everything from sand and donkeys to fish and chips and pancakes was available for adults and children alike and the sunshine luckily held out for most of the day.

Dancers and musicians performed capoeira, salsa, belly dancing and jazz on stage and there was a 1908-style tug-o-war as well as the chance to meet Edwardian characters.
