History

[[File:Primrose Hill - London.jpg|thumb|left|Panoramic view of London from Primrose Hill]]

Like Regent's Park, Primrose Hill was once part of a great chase appropriated by Henry VIII of England. Later, in 1841, it became Crown property and in 1842 an Act of Parliament secured the land as public open space. The built up part of Primrose Hill consists mainly of Victorian terraces. It has always been one of the more fashionable districts in the urban belt that lies between the core of London and the outer suburbs, and remains expensive and prosperous. Primrose Hill is an archetypal example of a successful London urban village, due to the location and the quality of its socio-historical development.Barr, Alistair, ''[http://www.barrgazetas.com/papers/PrimroseHill.pdf Primrose Hill, An Urban Village Examined''] In October 1678 Primrose Hill was the scene of the mysterious murder of Edmund Berry Godfrey, and in 1792 the radical Unitarian poet and antiquarian Iolo Morganwg (Edward Williams).
