Primrose Hill, London

4.7




Primrose Hill is a hill of 213 feet (65 m) located on the northern side of Regent's Park in London. The name was given also to the surrounding district. The hill summit has a clear view of central London, as well as Hampstead and Belsize Park to the north and is adorned by an engraved quotation from William Blake. Nowadays it is one of the most exclusive and expensive residential areas in London and is home to many prominent residents.
The Primrose Hill district is surrounded by St John's Wood to the west, Swiss Cottage to the northwest, Belsize Park to the north, Chalk Farm to the northeast, Camden Town to the east and Regent's Park itself lies adjacent to the south of the hill itself. The nearest stations to Primrose Hill are Chalk Farm tube station to the northeast and Swiss Cottage tube station to the northwest. The defunct Primrose Hill railway station sits on the railway lines that separate the Primrose Hill area from Camden Town.


Amenities of the hill include an outdoor gym known as the Hill Trim Trail, a children's playground, and toilets, all located on the south side near Primrose Hill bridge which connects to London Zoo and Regent's Park.


The park is Grade II listed.

  • A small are of open space, but with fantastic views across the City of London and beyond. Easily accessible on good paths.  more »
  • We were fortunate to visit Primrose Hill on a fabulous sunny day, although, we didn't realise it was going to be so popular. We did manage to get a fantastic view over London, worth the climb!  more »
