  On top of Primrose Hill
by chazgilbert

If you happen to be in touristy Camden or visiting London Zoo, it's well worth the hike up to the top of Primose Hill, just to the north of Regents Park.

It's a fairly well kept secret, and locals will tell you it's the best view in London - a complete panorama from Canary Wharf to Battersea Power Station.

Primose Hill rarely has more than about ten people on the top - if you fancy a bit of head space with a fantastic view it's highly recommended.
