Primrose Hill Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money? n/a Worth a visit? 203

 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.

  • 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.”
