Primrose Hill area information
Primrose Hill is the name of the Grade II listed park and its famous grassy hill, just off Regent’s Park, which also lends it name to the surrounding residential area. The hill itself is 65 metres high and from the top you can see across Central London on a clear day. The view is a reminder of just how close you really are to the City; it can be easy to forget in the small village of Primrose Hill itself.
Many notable people have lived in this area, with no fewer than seven English Heritage blue plaques. In the 1990s, the area built a reputation as the place where all celebrities of the day chose to call home, earning themselves the moniker ‘The Primrose Hill Set’.
In the years since, Primrose Hill has remained an ultra-exclusive destination for celebrities, socialites and media personalities. There are less than 8,000 residents in the area, giving it a real community focus.
