Many dusted off their sledges to fly down Parliament Hill, while some even snowboarded down the icy hills on the Heath.

The winter weather covered the whole of north London, and prompted hundreds to share their beautiful images of Hampstead and Highgate villages in the snow on Twitter.

Bob Warnock, the City of London Corporation’s Superintendent at Hampstead Heath, said: “It was great to see so many people out and enjoying the snow.

“Hampstead Heath is probably the best spot in London to enjoy the winter weather.”
