Meet the deer at Golders Hill Deer Pen

The deer in Golders Hill Park, part of Hampstead Heath, don't seem that worried about people getting close to them. Maybe it's because they have had their spirits broken by years of being trapped in a fairly small pen, or maybe they like it. Your author couldn't possibly speculate.


It isn't as depressing as some of London's deer pens, and fallow deer which live here seem in reasonable spirits, though not as happy as wild deer sometimes look. Nevertheless, it is probably good for London children to see a deer, and let's not underestimate the value of having nature around.

  1. I'd recommend Bushy Park...my daily haven of tranquility!
