Nestled between Camden Town and Regents Park and just over a mile from London’s West End, Primrose Hill is one of the most exclusive and expensive residential areas in London.

5 Things you should know about Primrose Hill

From its peak at 203 feet, Primrose Hill gives breathtaking, uninterrupted views across London and is one of just six protected viewpoints in the capital.

In October 1678, Primrose Hill was the scene of the mysterious murder of the magistrate Edmund Berry Godfrey.

The hill was historically the property of Eton College but was purchased by the Crown in the 20th century for use as a public resort.

During the Second World War, an anti-aircraft battery was sited on Primrose Hill.

Primrose Hill features in several books including War of the Worlds and 101 Dalmations (remember Pongo and Perdita’s twilight bark in search of their missing puppies?), films such as ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’ and ‘Notes on a Scandal’, as well as songs like Blur’s ‘For Tomorrow’.

Located on the north side of Regents Park, the hill itself has a clear view of central London to the south east, as well as Belsize Park and Hampstead to the north.

Chalk Farm and Camden (Northern line) tubes will whizz you into the centre of town within minutes and the neighbourhood is also within easy walking distance of Swiss Cottage, Marylebone, Regents Park, Camden and Belsize Park.

Picturesque Primrose Hill Village retains its original village charm with a selection of individual shops including an independent bakery, fishmonger, greengrocer and delicatessen, along with many popular local restaurants, bars and pubs.

Housing in Primrose Hill consists mainly of grand Victorian terraces and large, airy flats in converted period buildings. There are a handful of 1970s town houses but the only new build – the Henson flats development in the old Muppet HQ on the edge of Primrose Hill – sold out as soon as they were built. The area’s distinctive properties have beautiful architectural styles and many of the houses around Chalcot Square have pretty pastel-coloured facades.

Primrose Hill has long been a haven for writers and artists – Martin Amis, Isabel Fonseca, WB Yeats, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, to name just a few. Today it is still home to a disproportionate number of famous residents who can often be spotted walking the leafy neighbourhood streets or drinking in the relaxed local pubs.
