Primrose Hill

The New Bloomsbury ?


Primrose Hill is an area slightly to the north of the centre of the city and is full of lots of independent little businesses stretching out along Regent’s Park Road. It is a great little community with a matching spirit and the locals will think nothing of rallying to ensure that it stays that way. It is an anathema to the Central London fixation with branded coffee parlours. It might help by explaining that the area can boast plenty of well-known names as local residents and Gwen Stefani, Tim Burton and Jude Law are amongst them. Primrose Hill has often been compared to a modern-day Bloomsbury and the new Bohemia is home to many writers including Ian McEwan, Alan Bennett and Sylvia Platt.

It is an attractive place to visit and live. It is easy to see the attraction: Regent’s Park runs along the south of the village and eventually visitors will get to London Zoo. Just to the east is the chaotic Camden Town although Primrose Hill has its own musical history as Oasis and other mega-bands could once be found drinking in The Pembroke Castle.

The area is based around a hill of the same name in the Camden borough of London. Visitors climbing to its peak of 78 m will be offered a beautiful panoramic view of Central London. Primrose Hill can be reached by underground. Here are a few of our favourite selections.

“I have conversed with the spiritual Sun. I saw him on Primrose Hill.”
- William Blake

The jewel in Primrose Hill’s crown is the Roundhouse. It's a concert and performance hall that has hosted the best of the best bands. It was opened in 1847 but not for the purpose of being a concert hall at the time. It was classified as a historical monument in 1954 and closed. It reopened twenty-five years later, in 1964 as an auditorium. Today, the Roundhouse can accommodate 3300 people standing and 1700 seated.
