Primrose Hill - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama taken from the top of Primrose Hill overlooking the London skyline and London Zoo. This is a popular place for tourists to come, and used to have an annual firework display on Guy Fawkes Night, sadly now quashed by the local authorities.

Primrose Hill - FURTHER INFORMATION

Primrose Hill - London visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Primrose Hill' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Greater London.

Primrose Hill is just north of Regents Park and London Zoo. Rising to a height of 256 feet (78 m), Primrose Hill offers some of the best views over central London, covering the City of London and out to Canary Wharf in the Docklands. From the top it is possible to pick out many of the major London landmarks such as the London Eye and St Paul's Cathedral.

Primrose Hill was appropriated by Henry VIII and handed over to the public by an Act of Parliament in 1842. The name is also given to the surrounding area, mostly made of expensive Victorian properties. This part of London has long been associated with affluence and a number of celebrities live nearby.

Primrose Hill is within easy walking distance of Camden Town and Camden Market. The Regents Park Canal runs near the southern side of the hill.
