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.
