Primrose Hill

North London

On summer weekends, Primrose Hill park is absolutely packed with locals enjoying a picnic and the extraordinary views over the city skyline. Come weekdays, however, and there are mostly just dog walkers and nannies. It’s a lovely place to enjoy a quiet stroll or an alfresco lunch.
