Discovering Primrose Hill, London

When the sun shines in England, us expats and Londoners are morally obligated to get outside and head to the nearest green space! Primrose Hill has been on my London bucket list for quite some time and today seemed like the perfect lazy, sunny Sunday to make the trek up to North London and gaze out over one of the best London skyline views.

We got off at Chalk Farm Station (northern line) and strolled past the pretty terrace houses and set on up the hill.

Joining (just a handful) of other Londoners with the exact same idea, we plonked ourselves down at the top and marvelled in the view of our beloved city. If you look closely you can see the London Eye, The Shard, the Walkie Talkie Building, the BT Tower and even St Paul’s Cathedral.

Soaking up the sun and embracing that precious vitamin D that my poor Australian skin hasn’t seen in awhile, was the perfect start to my first London Summer.

Heading back down to explore a bit of Chalk Farm, we discovered that Notting Hill isn’t the only London area with pretty pastel houses…

Of course, as we were in the area we just had to take a wander around Regents Park and oogle the swans and duckies.

If you’re looking for what to do your next lazy Sunday afternoon in London- head on up to Primrose Hill, take a coffee or bottle of wine (depending on how your week may have been), soak up some rays and embrace yet another beautiful spot that can be found in our pretty city of London.
