Springing into Primrose Hill & Regent’s Park

It finally feels like spring in London! The birds are chirping, the blossoms are out and the sun is shining!

Taking full advantage of this warmer sunnier weather at the weekend, I headed to one of my favourite areas in London, Primrose Hill, with my friend Kara.

Primrose Hill is an area in London just north of Regent’s Park. It is a great destination for a relaxing wander and a good lunch.

The high street is lined with lots of cute independent shops and quaint cafes.

But, what I like best about the area is the real estate.

Primrose Hill is famous for its beautiful pastel coloured homes. We had a great morning wandering around Chalcot Square and Gloucester Avenue dreaming that we were an owner of one of these amazing rainbow coloured houses.

Which one would you chose, the pink one or the blue one?

I am not sure I would be able to chose between the two!

For lunch, Kara and I headed to Greenberry, a favourite cafe among the locals. Luckily we were able to book in advance, so did not have to join the queue of hungry Londoners that wrapped outside the restaurant.

The menu was great and the food looked amazing, so we couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

I was very impressed with Greenberry and would definitely go back again. My chicken and avocado salad was delicious, but the standout dish was the sweet potato fries- so good!

The sun was still shining after lunch so we went for a walk up to to the hill (of Primrose Hill) to get a view of the city and to check out the beautiful spring blossoms.

From Primrose Hill we then wandered over the canal into Regent’s Park.

Regent’s Park is one of the royal parks in London and is home to the London Zoo.  The place was just bursting with fresh spring flowers and smiling Londoners enjoying the warm day.

The formal gardens are a great escape from the city and have a bit of a Parisian feel, which is a bonus in my book.

So nice to get the sunglasses out and leave the big woollen jumpers at home.Let’s hope this warmer weather is here to stay!
