Step Eight: watch the sunset from Primrose Hill

27 Nov

When I first moved to London, I had to quickly accept that no matter where you go, or what form of transport you take, on average you should leave about 40 minutes to get from point A to point B.

Gone were the student days where the biggest dilemma was which one street, out of five to choose from, should I live on? Moving to London meant losing the luxury to live a stone’s throw away from everything.

But it also meant I got to venture to Primrose Hill more.

Note I write more, and not lots, because it still takes a while from my end of town. But when we finally arrived at Chalk Farm an hour later, after the weekend tube closures and extra-long Sunday bus waits, it was still worth it to escape the city rush and appreciate the Big Smoke from afar.

Now I do love my sunsets, and this is one of the cosiest places to watch the sky change colour. Have a cider, walk around the hill, and after head indoors for tea and cake in the various cafes on Regent’s Park Road.

Word of warning, most close at around 5pm on a Sunday and fill up quickly.

Nearest tube: Chalk Farm.
