Where did I go next on the Bleeding London project? Primrose Hill. This is the neighbourhood lying between Regent’s Park, Camden Town, Chalk Farm and St. John’s Wood. It takes on some of the character of each of those areas, being a posh, diverse, lively, leafy village.
Every website discussing Primrose Hill mentions its celebrity residents, a collection of models, musicians and actors, but the only person who I can state with any certainty as living there is my friend Lisa. Here is a photo of Chalcot Crescent (showing neither Lisa nor her house).
[UPDATE in 2015: Now I know someone else who lives there…..Paddington Bear. This street was used as a filming location for the 2014 movie.]
This is the closest I got to the hill of Primrose Hill. No streets to photograph within the park, so I had an excuse not to walk all the way up.
The parkland vibe seems to have invaded the streets, with greenery everywhere.
It doesn’t make it easy when I’m trying to identify every street.
