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.
