London area of Primrose Hill guide

What to do and where to stay in London's Primrose Hill neighbourhood

The hill to the North of Regent’s Park has been adopted as home by the wealthy left-wingers of the London arts and media world, who dislike the aristocratic pretensions of West London but still want to live somewhere beautiful. Actors and newspaper editors share the wide open spaces and chic pubs of Primrose Hill with TV presenters and pop stars, while a less wealthy hippy community live a life of ease on houseboats on the Regent's Canal. From a distance, this is a pretty little village, full of families, but a closer look reveals that the shops sell world-class fashion, chic designer furnishings and only the most extravagantly expensive organically sourced food and drink, while the happy families are celebrity couples, being stalked from a distance by Paparazzi photographers. Hotels are in short supply amid all the loveliness but stay south of Regent's Park and you can stroll through wonderful parkland to get there.
