Primrose Hill is located just north of Regent's Park, and offers one of the best views of the London skyline from anywhere in the city.

When you first clap eyes on it it doesn't seem like a hill at all, but once you start trekking to the top you soon realise that it's steeper than it looks! When you finally get to the summit you can have a sit down on one of the benches and enjoy an uninterrupted view from the London Eye to the skyscrapers at Canary Wharf.

It should be easy enough to pick out the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral and The Shard, but can you see the Gherkin and the Houses of Parliament? They've got a big silver plaque up there explaining where they all are, just in case you need a little help.

You might like to read Craig's review of Primrose Hill on his blog before you go, which includes some more photos of the view.

If you enjoy walking up tall hills then you will probably enjoy a visit to Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath as well.

 Guest – “The big silver viewing panel has disappeared again (as of January 2013) - anyone know why, is it being updated or has it been vandalised?”
