Explore Primrose Hill
A beautiful escape from the bustle of the city below, the hill is popular for long walks and summer picnics. The highlight of the area is one of the best views in London, from where you can see London’s stunning cityscape, particularly in the evening when the landscape is illuminated by the bright lights of the City.
The park was bought from Eton College in 1841, “In order to extend the parkland available to the poor people of North London for open-air recreation” (Royal Parks). The area has since developed into the charming centre of North London, from where you can easily access Maida Vale and Little Venice to the West, Hampstead to the North. Closest lies Camden Town with an extensive array of independent shops, Camden Market, street food venues and its celebrated nightlife. Primrose Hill itself its renowned for its small cafés and eateries, especially along Regent’s Park Road and Gloucester Avenue.
