Episode 8 – Discover Primrose Hill

6 Oct

This month we take a trip to one of my favourite places in the whole world…..Primrose Hill. Forget the London Eye, Primrose Hill has the best view of London. But it’s much more than just a place to get a great view. It is the perfect place to spend a beautiful summer’s day lazing in the long grass. It also has a charming village atmosphere with a host of famous celebrity residents. This really is where the rich and famous choose to live. Thankfully though, it costs nothing to wander the quiet streets and enjoy the spectacular view. So come on a trip with us and find out what all the fuss is about.
