About the Tour

Just minutes from the bustling Camden markets lies London’s quaint Primrose Hill neighbourhood. On this walking tour, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view across the city from the top of Primrose Hill all the way to Canary Wharf, and then stroll down through the beautiful Regent’s Park to Baker Street. Along the way, you'll visit picturesque streets, and discover secret gardens away from the crowds that even most locals have never heard of.

Trace the development and history of the area and hear stories relating to:

• Regent’s Park, Regent’s Canal and the Prince Regent’s royal connection
• The world’s first scientific zoo, London Zoo, and how it almost disappeared
• The striking architecture surrounding the park
• What happened when thousands of people wrote letters to Sherlock Holmes

If you’ve ever wanted to spend a little time getting to really know the city, then this is the walking tour for you.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

We'll walk past several cafés along the way in Regent's Park - I'll point them out. Plus, the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Madame Tussauds.

Best time of day

Dawn too dusk. Make sure to begin this tour at least one hour before sunset as The Regent's Park closest at sunset.

Precautions

Be careful when crossing roads as some short crossings don't have pedestrian or zebra crossings.
