Regents Park and Primrose Hill
Friday turned out to be lovely sunny, if windy, day. I decided to visit some of the local parks, but being London the local parks happen to be Regents Park and Primrose Hill. Regents Park was beautiful and it is obviously well cared for by a large team of gardeners and groundspersons. It is a huge green space in the city and has different areas dedicated to different pursuits. There are kids playgrounds, playing fields, wide tree lined avenues and formal gardens with the largest array of rose varieties I’ve ever seen.
Primrose Hill was lovely as well. It’s a smaller space but clearly popular with families (and their nannies) and of course it does boast the hill it is named after. I had to walk past London Zoo to get there. I’d like to go to the Zoo, it’s not a cheap day out but I might get around to it before the weather really turns wintry. But here’s Primrose Hill.
Up next – a trip to Portobello Road market in Notting Hill.
