Why locals love it

Vale of Health was so named after becoming the only safe place in London from the Black Death of 1665.

It hosted poets, artists and writers in XIX century and pictured as one of the best spots in London to get inspired.

Why you should visit it

Today, Vale of Health consists of no more of fifty little cottages designed to maintain the same artistic charm of the past, often separated by narrow passageways, together with two small blocks of private flats.

You will forget you are in London, believe me.

Special tip

Try to pay attention at the way those cottages are furnished inside: most of them have entire walls made out of windows. Stunning!
