Colours of Primrose Hill

We had a destination, but it took us some time to arrive as we wandered the streets and parks of the city. Regent’s Park, one of the many Royal Parks of the city was in full blossom. We found the most beautiful cherry blossom trees and tulip gardens. The canal in the park is always interesting with its many inhabitants – swans, geese and ducks.

On the northern side of Regent’s Park lies Primrose Hill, reaching 65 meters above the city.  From the hill summit, you can see the distant city as skyscrapers reach towards the clouds, the Shard standing tall and sharp. The district surrounding this peak has also been known as Primrose Hill, and was an area we haven’t yest discovered. It is home to many prominent residents, and considered one of the most exclusive and expensive residential areas in London. We loved walking around the neighbourhood, admiring the beautiful colours and designs. It was not hard to spot one particular house which became my favourite one. It was a huge, bright pink building on Chalcot Square. Although very eye-catching, it was actually the touches of handmade elements that attracted me to this place. The yellow door was adorned with a hand painted wooden heart ornament, and the windows displayed tissue paper stars and balls. It really was beautiful and magical with these tiny touches.

The main street is most welcoming with its many boutiques, flowers shops, delis and cafes. I had my eyes set on Sweet Things, serving treats in a chic setting – tables of colourful sprinkles and all! They were super busy at the time, but I did try a tiny little cupcakes. It was a sweet little thing to enjoy!

As Camden market was nearby, we had Indian and Mexican for dinner before heading home. This town is one of the most diverse in the city, and the market is always a pleasure.
