About Primrose Hill
Primrose Hill is a hill of 256 feet (78 m) located on the north side of Regent’s Park in North West London, England, and also the name for the surrounding district. The hill has a clear view of Central London to the south-east, as well as Belsize Park and Hampstead to the north and the area falls across 3 postal districts, NW1, NW3 and NW8.
Like Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill was once part of a great chase appropriated by Henry VIII and became Crown property in 1841. In 1842 an Act of Parliament secured the land as public open space. The built up part of Primrose Hill consists mainly of Victorian terraces. It has always been one of the more fashionable districts in the urban belt that lies between the core of London and the outer suburbs, and remains expensive and prosperous. In October 1678 Primrose Hill (then known as Greenberry Hill) was the scene of the mysterious murder of Edmund Berry Godfrey.
