Hampstead Heath is cockney rhyming slang for Teeth
💬 “Got to go down the dentist to have me ‘Ampsteads looked at“
Hampstead Heath is now the most commonly used rhyming slang for teeth, having taken over from Hounslow Heath which was a pre-1900s expression.
Normally shortened to Hampsteads (or sometimes even Hamps).
Hampstead Heath itself is a 790 acre area of parkland, hillside and woodland, with spectacular views across the city of London.
