Famous for its fantastic views all over London, Primrose Hill is one of the capital’s most well-known parks, and the top of the hill is one of just six protected views in the city.
Once part of a great chase acquired by King Henry VIII along with Regents Park, Primrose Hill once hosted various jousts and prize fights. The park was then purchased from Eton College in the 19th Century as an open air recreation space for the people of North London. It is home to lots of famous graffiti, as well as Shakespeare’s Tree, a large oak tree which was planted in 1864 in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth. The tree was eventually replaced and the current tree has been in that location since 1964.
Since that time, the park has become Grade II listed and the area surrounded the parkland is now home to many famous residents, such as Jude Law and Sienna Miller. Indeed, the surrounding Chalk Farm has a long and famous history. Having once been a small hamlet in the Hornsey parish, it later became part of the London Borough of Camden and is home to what is known as the ‘Camden Set’ of artists, writers and creatives.
Additionally, there are many media companies and other creative firms which have made the area their home. This is due to the excellent transport in the area, with easy access to Chalk Farm tube, Overground station Camden Road, international train station Kings Cross St Pancras, and bus routes going all the way to the other side of London. These fantastic links make the area the ideal place to set up shop, here at RIB we have a range of retail spaces to suit your needs with many fantastic locations in close proximity to the green space of Primrose Hill.
