Primrose Hill Tours

Primrose Hill
Located at the north end of Regent’s Park, the grassy slopes of Primrose Hill offer walking trails and benches, making it the perfect place to enjoy a stroll or a picnic. The 206-foot (63-meter) summit of the hill offers expansive views over the park, the neighboring London Zoo, and the skyline of central London.
 
The Basics
Renowned for its impressive panoramic views and for a smattering of celebrity residents (Jamie Oliver, Kate Moss, and Gwen Stefani have owned houses nearby), Primrose Hill sits in one of North London’s most sought-after locations. The hill has been popular since the 19th century and is now one of London’s six protected viewpoints. Guided walking tours of North London neighborhoods, particularly Camden, often include a visit to Primrose Hill.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Primrose Hill is a must-visit if you want to soak up some serenity in the city.
  • The hill is a favorite hangout for locals and dog walkers.
  • In the 18th century, the hill was a destination for duels.
  • There are lots of independent and family-run restaurants around Primrose Hill, making it a great place to spend an afternoon.
  • The numerous shops and cafés give the area a village vibe.
 
How to Get There
The nearest tube station is Chalk Farm, which is an 8-minute walk from Primrose Hill. The nearest train station is Kentish Town, a 21-minute walk away (or you can take the tube to Chalk Hill). Numerous buses serve the area, including routes 1, 30, and 139.
 
When to Get There
You can visit any time, and there is no entrance gate or admission fee. The park is busiest during the weekend, especially if the weather is good, so aim to visit on a weekday if you wish to avoid the crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet.
 
Literary History
Primrose Hill boasts a long association with London’s literary history, as evidenced by the numerous English Heritage blue plaques around the area. Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes used to reside here, in a house previously owned by W. B. Yeats. Look for Shakespeare’s Tree, planted in honor of the 300th anniversary of the Bard’s birth. The York stone at the summit is inscribed with a William Blake quote.
