Put on some comfortable shoes, essential for any trip to London, and climb up Primrose Hill, formerly part of the hunting grounds of King Henry VIII. A delightful place with stunning views over London. The Rolling Stones put the park on the album cover of “Between the Buttons”.
For Paul McCartney, a strange meeting on Primrose Hill inspired “The Fool On The Hill”, recorded in September 1967, at the Abbey Road studios nearby. A walk on Primrose Hill is highly recommended as a way of finding peace after a trip to Camden Market. If you haven't already had a meal on your way here, you can lunch at The Engineer pub, or brunch on a weekend at Greenberry Café, a neighbourhood institution.
Then gear up for a shopping spree on Regent's Park Road, at Elias & Grace (for children) and at Anna (for their moms), the latter offering a beautiful selection of designer clothing and accessories.
