Primrose Hill, on the north side of Regent's Park, commands one of the most iconic views over London. It's a popular picnic and kite-flying spot. The surrounding area of the same name is just as attractive as the celebrities who frequent the gastropubs and quaint cafés along Regent's Park Road and Gloucester Avenue.

The view is amazing, you can see all the buildings in the city, the London eye, the Regent's park... I love going there in the evening so that I can see the sunset, but it is beautiful at every time of the day. 

Very close to Camden Town, that's why I usually spend a whole day in that area. 


Great place for all seasons, whether you like to sledge down on snowy days or lounge around and bask out in the warm sunshine. Fly a kite on blustery windy days, kick about in the autumn leaves with gorgeous views over London this is a must visit for any Londoner. Watching the sunrise or sunset over the city from here is just magical. Open from 5am this is great place for quiet reflection or to catch up with friends.


Want a great view of London? Primrose is the perfect place for you. Curiously more charming than the Hampstead one, the view is breathtaking. London’s skyline feels both far and near and gives you this ‘I love this city’ feeling. You can come here anytime of the day but at dawn it’s majestic.

Once you’re done with the view (if you ever are), you can take a walk in nearby Regent’s Park, visit the zoo or just head to Camden. Great place to have in your books.

A popular chill out zone for groups of young people on hectic nights out in Camden town who may climb to the summit to enjoy the staggering panoramic view of nighttime London while supping on a couple Red Stripe. Marijuana is occasionally smoked in the same fashion as roll up cigarettes by the revelers. Primrose Hill is also perfect for civilised daytime picnics, or crashing an outdoor 'natural zen yoga' class, which could also be described as 'stretching on grass'. 

Primrose Hill is best enjoyed during the golden hours around sundown on a hot July evening, after the wasps have pissed off but before the bitey flies come out en masse. Sightings of actor Jude Law riding a unicycle have been known at such times, though they are rare.

Amazing view over london, quiet and peaceful, a nice little outdoor gym at the foot of the hill, quaint shops outside and a nice walk down the canal to Camden at the base. One of my favourite parks :)
