In recent years, Primrose Hill has gained a reputation for being the London pad of fun-loving yummy mummies in yoga pants. It’s not hard to spot famous people here pushing their babies around in strollers on their way to tri-yoga classes at one of the many studios nearby (I haven’t met any yet, but I’m not a local and don’t walk the area very often). I love visiting the Park and walking around on Primrose Hill for photoshoots. It’s a great place to take pictures with colourful houses, cute coffee shops, and unique cupcakes.
Places to sight in Primrose Hill when you come out of Chalk Farm tube station.
Walking down Regent’s Park Road, you see the quaint coffee shops and flower boutiques before finally reaching Primrose Hill Park. At this point, it’s time to climb up for a panoramic view of London- one that is some of the best in town! Once back on your feet, head towards Chalcot Square and Crescent, where there are many more sights waiting for you with colourful terraced house in pastel pink and blues, one of the prettiest street in London! Take a left on Regent Park Road as soon as you are out from that street to walk up Princess Road. There, towards the end, there is the fabulous cupcake bakery called The Primrose Bakery; they were one of the first to take London by storm with their cupcake. They are well worth stopping by and give you a gluten free cupcake option.
Regent’s Park area
You can walk from the bakery to Regent’s Park Road or continue walking down and catch Gloucester Gate, one of the park entrance. The famous London Zoo is also in this Park, which has a lot of green space for people to enjoy! Regent’s Park is a great place to visit during Spring and Summer when you can watch the blossoms and enjoy picnics.
Towards Regents Park station lies London’s iconic park square and park crescent (designed by John Nash’s the architect who built Buckingham Palace). A 200-year-old regency structure transformed into first-class flats and garden villas that will set you in what I call elegant London.
