Primrose Hill, north London

Just north of Regent's Park and London Zoo, this picturesque green space climbs sharply upwards to a viewpoint from where you can see right across London, taking in everything from the London Eye to St. Paul's Cathedral to Battersea Power Station. A row of grand Regency town houses, painted in a variety of pastel shades, lines the east side of the park. The period ambiance is accentuated by the Victorian lampposts lining the pathways that run down the hillside towards a large children's playground and adult fitness circuit. One of London's best parks. 8/10
