Primrose Hill

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.

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 :)
