 From Primrose HillLondon

 

At 203 feet Primrose Hill is a bit of a climb, but is well-worth the effort – it boasts some of the best views of London.

Its position north of Regent’s Park gives you a fine view of London Zoo below, as well as the City in the distance and Canary Wharf to the east.

The hill was once a popular spot for duellists, determined to stab each other to death on the heights. It also played host to an anti-aircraft battery during World War II. But these days you can bide your time on a bench with dog walkers and energetic joggers.

 
  • ChrisP – “We quite often go for a stroll up here on Sunday afternoon. They need some more places to eat though, because you have to walk all the way down for a drink. But the view is great. If you're lucky you can get a bench, because they dont have many benches up there because the top isn't very big. But if you can get a bench you can sit down for half hour and look out over one of the best views in London. You;ve got London zoo right at the bottom of the hill, and you can try and spot the animals with your kids. Then youve got the city further away, and you can try and spot all the landmarks. You can see a long way east, west and south.”
  • donald – “If it's Sunny and there's a nice bit of wind then primrose hill is lovely, but if it's raining that it is absolute hell because you are totally exposed up there and I remember a few times when I have strolled up there with the dogs only to get absolutely soaked through to the skin. What they need is a nice little gazebo up there, or a little caravan cafe selling cups of tea and chargrill burgers. Of course you will get the locals moaning but it will be worth it. I could quite happily sit up there with the missus for an hour with a nice cup of tea.”
  • ian meyer – “Spent a very nice Sunday afternoon on primrose hill yesterday. It was a bit of a climb to the top and we were grateful for the benches at the top if you've got a bit of Sun and a nice breeze then there's nothing better than sitting up there watching the skyline for a while.”
