Visited for New Year’s Eve. Would not recommend. We expected it to be busy but the crowds were unbearable being shoved here there and everywhere. When we arrived at 10.30pm we had a good view but as more people arrived we lost that view. There was no atmosphere. We came home and watched the fireworks on iPlayer. I would suggest to get a good view you need to arrive very early.

Before gnawing on turkey legs and slabs of rare prime rib, Henry VIll used this patch of greenery as his hunting grounds presumably while his six wives looked on with royal comportment. The only thing that has lasted through the last six centuries is the patch of greenery which my husband and I trodded upon after walking along the Regent's Canal. It was a swelteringly hot day in London except for one slight breeze we felt once we made it to the top of the hill summit. From there, you get quite the unexpected views of central London. A crowd did gather but nothing like the masses that swarm the Sky Garden or the Shard.

I suggest offering to take photos of people in front of the view in order for them to reciprocate in kind. Most were very accommodating, and for those few who demur and refused to take your picture, there's a special place in hell for them where they're constantly blinded by flash bulbs. The walk down the hill was also lovely as you see civilized people doing civilized things like having a white tablecloth picnic or creating a landscape painting under a leafy tree suitable for a mid-priced motel. We just crossed Prince Albert Road to walk through Regent's Park, one of the city's more splendorous parks.

Primrose Hill is a neighbourhood of London bordered by Camden and St John's Wood. It is made famous by its hill which is quite big. If you are by the ZSL then you should be able to see the hill.

There are paths to get to the top or you can use the grass. If you are someone who struggles walking you may find it a challenge but the view from the top of the hill is MAGNIFICENT!

You can see the whole of the city from Canary Wharf to the City of London, The London Eye and West. There are plenty of landmarks to see and there is a guide at the top of the hill to help you identify them.

You will definitely enjoy the scenery.

I decided to go down the other way and headed into St John's Wood. It's not quite such a climb going this way.

A great park with best view of the London skyline . The rolling hills and meadows of the park will mesmerize you . The sheer beauty of this park is unmatched at ant time of the day . The upscale neighborhood has some very inviting eateries and bars . Dogs friendly place is really a treat to the senses . No entree fee . The timings are strictly monitored . The residents around here are generally celebrities and one may come across them walking around here .

Take the bus or the tub to the Chalk Farm Station and wander around the neighbourhood. It is a lovely area. To access the Primrose Hill from the Chalk Farm station take the Regent's Park Road, once you are at the edge of the park entrance hike all the way up. It is a lovely view! Not too busy, and it is mostly visit by locals.

Once you are done your visit, go downhill and cross Prince Albert Road, keep ahead and you will find signs to get down to the Regent's canal. If you stick with the canal you will end up in Camden.

As a preparation to visiting London for the second time, we looked into 'London Touristic guides' and found out that this kind of book has suggestions of walk tours that you can do on your own. So we made copies of the maps only and we were surprised to find that all the walking tours led us to nom touristic areas, but very interesting cultural/historical places to see and to know.

I ended up here by accident while I was studying abroad in 2015, since then I've made a point to come back to when I'm in London. It's a great place to see the London skyline as well forget you're in the middle of a city. If you need to get away from the craziness of London, this is a good place to do it

This was my first time to Primrose Hill. There were many teenagers having some kind of rave at the top of the hill and being quite anti social but aside from that it was quite a good park with good views. It lacked some of the variety that I found at Hampstead and wasn't as prestine as other royal parks but it adds some variety so worth a visit

Spent time housesitting near Primrose Hill over Christmas and our favourite walk on a sunny morning. It is probably too busy on New Years Eve, but do make the effort to visit during the day.
Great views over the London skyline.

Selfish awful people who should move and live somewhere else have made this park close at 10pm which is utterly absurd, it has never been that way and should never be.

Nice view but they keep building sky scrapers that block it and it's a very small park. It often gets too busy to enjoy.

Great place for views over the city but also a lovely place for a stroll. The local shopping street is also a very hip place. Just north of Regent's Park, and in some ways related to it (it seems to be considered as one Royal Park with its more famous neighbour), it is well worth visiting.

Very popular in the summer and, despite the photos, there is always room for another picnic hamper!
