Make your way towards the top of Hilly Fields and look out for the twelve stone circles and two tall shadow casting stones erected to mark the Millennium. Then head right to the top and take a break at the Hilly Fields Pistachios cafe which serves good coffee, and delicious sandwiches, soups and home made cakes.

Hilly Fields is also one of the best places to watch the New Year’s eve fireworks – watch at least five displays at once across the London Skyline from this vantage point, plus you won’t get stuck in the crowds.
