The locals' guide to Hampstead......
Above: the new cover of The Hampstonian
The Hampstonian is still on sale... but only just.
The Hampstonian has all but sold out but is still available at some Hampstead newsagents and book shops
The Hampstonian is the essential information guide and directory for everyone visiting, living, working or skiving in Hampstead. This tidy little annual contains various articles, reviews and information about Hampstead's history, museums, art galleries, cafés, bars, pubs, delis, restaurants and theatres as well as a rather useful guide to Hampstead Heath.
It might be exaggerating slightly to suggest that without The Hampstonian 2016, you are but a lost soul, floating aimlessly around the neighbourhood without any meaningful purpose whaever - yet it would not be inaccurate to name this little gem of a booklet the “Hampstonian's Bible”.

About the Hampstonian
In an attempt to help combat the colonisation of Hampstead by faceless multi-national corporations, The Hampstonian was founded in 2010 by Emmanuel Mustafa Goldstein, the mythical editor of the satirical and irreverent local magazine, the Hampstead Village Voice. As well as keeping said editor fed with tea and raisin toast, The Hampstonian accommodates local, independent and family run businesses - large and small - with affordable advertising to give them every chance of competing effectively with the likes of Stressco, Teen-Mobile and Arsebuks.

The first ever Hampstonian published in 2010... More than a nod to the famous New Yorker's View of the World cover!

About the coat of arms
The Hampstonian coat of arms contains the latin expression: non sibi sed toti which, roughly translated, means, not for self but for all. It is with this spirit of common sense and consideration for others that The Hampstonian wishes to enlighten and inform. If it can take one small step towards lifting Hampstead out from the dark ages of a horrid, multi-national corporate shopping mall culture - then it's been a worthwhile exercise.
Viva Hampstonia, land of the almost free!
