Weekend Scrapbook: Primrose Hill





I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Primrose Hill is one of my most favourite places in London. When I first moved here from the coast I spent ages collecting ideas for places to visit which will give me a feeling of space in this crowded city. As you can see, it certainly does the job. Primrose Hill and the surrounding streets are so picturesque; from the hundreds of cute dogs you'll see to the cosy individual coffee shops and of course the stunning views.

If you're in London I recommend getting off the tube at Chalk Farm and walking through the streets before coming to the park, there are some really beautiful shops there - not to mention an abundance of coloured houses. I can't wait until I'm a trillionaire and living in one of the beautiful terraced houses with my 3 dogs.

I've been a bit restless and discontented this weekend, I'm not sure what set me off but after our refreshing walk around Camden and eating a huge bar of chocolate I'm feeling more myself. If only I could find away to get rid of the football from my TV...

How were your weekends? Have you ever been to Primrose Hill?

  12. Wow, love your beautiful pictures of Primrose Hill! A year or so ago, I visited a friend who lives in Kentish Town and we walked around Primrose Hill, it is such a gorgeous place. We later took embarrassing jumping pictures on top of the hill, which earned us strange looks from passers-by... You've captured it beautifully! Especially those brightly coloured houses!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes! Looking forward to reading more of your blog. :-)

    I'm adding Primrose Hill to the top of my London to do list for the next sunny day, the views look stunning. And those pastel houses! Such great photos.

  15. I really want to go slash live here it looks so cute and colourful and generally excellent in every way. I'm on a flying visit to London next weekend I might drag a friend over there for the afternoon. Also, feeling your pain on the football, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't wake up to the relaxing sounds of sky sports news at the moment :( xx
