The sun has just come out for the summer and it is now time to enjoy walks again. Primrose Hill is a beautiful neighbourhood where the birds sing, the hedges are perfectly trimmed and everyone looks happy. It is actually one of the most expensive and sought neighbourhoods in London and is reportedly home to Enrique Iglesias, Eva Green, Jude Law, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Tim Burton, Rachel Weisz and many more!

But this does not stop us from strolling in the streets, dreaming a little, and finally arriving at the entrance of Primrose Hill Park. Primrose Hill was one of the hunting grounds of King Henry VIII in the 16th century before becoming Crown property in 1841 and opening to the public in 1842. Today it is one of the most spectacular spots in the central and southeastern part of London.

Just to the south of the park, you can continue the walk through Regent's Park, one of the many perfectly maintained, flowery and colourful, spacious parks where it is possible to do many activities. Sit on one of the deckchairs, read a book on the small wooden benches, go for a walk in the alleys, play soccer, tennis, softball and cricket, enjoy one of the many bars/restaurants, stroll In the perfectly maintained royal gardens, and let yourself be carried away by the intoxicating smell of the roses of all colours.

Like most royal parks, Regent's Park is also splendid, spacious, green and colourful. The gardens of roses are breathtakingly beautiful, the pond and the waterfall are a few meters away and the flower gardens perfectly remind us of the beauty of the parks of London.
