Train to Hampstead
The London Overground is a revamped and improved rail system that takes new electric trains around the London area - there is just one gap in the network on South London as I write this (early 2012) but eventually it will be possible to take a circular ride around London.
The line stops in Hampstead at Hampstead Heath station - this station is indeed very handy for the Heath but also a short walk along Keats Grove in the other direction towards Hampstead centre.
Bus to Hampstead
There are two services to the main part of Hampstead ( the area around the tube station) - a 46 (to Lancaster Gate) and a 268 (to Golders Green). Other buses do stop near Hampstead Heath overground station and the Royal Free Hospital but these are some distance from the main part of the village.
Travellers should buy a travel pass such as a day pass or Oyster card as individual trips are very expensive at £2 for a single journey.

Tube to Hampstead
Northern Line trains serve Hampstead and it is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Golders Green and Belsize Park stations - coming rom central London it is sometimes required to change Northern Line trains at Camden Town to gain the Edgeware branch.
The station was opened in 1907 and is located at the junction of Heath Street and Hampstead High Street, the name Heath Street was proposed for the station before opening.The original tiled station signs on the recently restored platform walls still read "Heath Street". Hampstead is on a steep hill and the station platforms are the deepest on the London Underground network, at 58.5 metres or 192 feet below ground level. It has the deepest lift shaft on the Underground at 181 feet.
