  WHAT’S LIVING IN Primrose Hill LIKE?

Primrose Hill is the Hollywood of London: you can’t walk down the street without seeing a celebrity. This absolutely gorgeous suburban area is filled with musicians, actors, television personalities, models, and anyone else who you’d see in the tabloids.

Part of the appeal is that it's near central London where a lot of the action is, but it has a tightknit community feel, especially since there are only 7,500 residents. There are a lot of independent businesses, shops, and cafes here, which just adds to that village-like vibe. It doesn’t matter who your neighbors are, they will know you and you will know them.

The costs of housing here are all the more remarkable given Primrose Hill's history as an extremely poor town with not a lot going for it. Today, those Victorian houses that once belonged to poor workers have been restored and are now worth upwards of £20 million. Flats will cost you at least £350,000. Renting is more attainable, with a cheap two bedroom flat costing around £1750 pcm.

But you aren’t only paying for famous neighbors and exclusive gyms, you are paying for accessibility as well. There are tons of options for trains and buses, and everything is within walking distance. The actual hill part of Primrose Hill offers some of the best views of London.

Primrose Hill is bordered on the north by Belsize Park, on the east by Chalk Farm and Camden Town, on the south by Regent's Park, and on the west by Swiss Cottage.
