POINTS OF INTEREST
More conventionally parklike than Hampstead Heath, the rolling lawns of Primrose Hill, the northerly extension of Regent's Park which rises to 256 feet, provide outstanding views over the city to the southeast, encompassing Canary Wharf and the London Eye. Filled with families and picnickers in nice weather, it has featured in books—it was here that Pongo engaged in “twilight barking” in The Hundred and One Dalmatians, and the Martians set up an encampment in H.G. Wells’s The War of The Worlds. It's also been mentioned in songs by Blur, Madness, and Paul McCartney, among others, and served as a location for films including Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Paddington Bear.
