Welcome to Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is a popular area of London with a village feel and the oasis of the Hill itself, a beautiful green space with a tranquil atmosphere.  The area has historically drawn intellectuals and famous literary names as well as current celebrity residents including Jamie Oliver and Gwen Stefani.  The properties are predominantly Victorian terraced houses, many of which have been converted into stylish flats.  Chalcot Square and Chalcot Crescent are particularly popular, with a number of houses painted in beautiful pastel colours.  Primrose Hill is well connected to central London with many popular destinations within walking distance.

  • Parks & recreation

    As well as Primrose Hill itself, with its children’s playground and outdoor gym, the area is right next to the spectacular Regents Park and London Zoo.  Despite the proximity to central London, Primrose Hill boasts a selection of open green spaces.

    From the top of Primrose Hill, central London can be seen above the beautiful trees.  It’s a great place to watch the sunset on warm evenings and admire the skyline of the capital.

    Lemonia is a consistent local favourite.  A Greek family run restaurant, Lemonia serves freshly made Mediterranean food and has been running for the past 30 years.

    Primrose Hill Primary School has achieved good grades and there are excellent schools nearby in St Johns Wood and Regents Park. 

    The American Language School is also in St Johns Wood.

  • Transport & travel

    A Zone 2 area, Primrose Hill is near central London and keen cyclists or walkers can make the journey past London Zoo, through Regents Park to Regents Street and Oxford Circus.  There is also the option of travelling by narrow boat on the Canal and two nearby tube stations:
