Regents Park is home to the beautiful Primrose Hill, a serene escape from the exciting but relentless buzz of the city. Sit yourselves down on picnic blankets atop the grassy slopes which offer a perfect vantage point over the London skyline. The Shard, the London Eye, the Gherkin and St Paul's Cathedral reach into the clouds across the horizon, but surrounded by 50 acres of lush greenery, the city couldn't seem further away.
We came armed with goodies from Borough Market, but a great way to enjoy a late summer afternoon would be to bring a bottle of bubbly and watch the world go by.
The nearest tube station is Chalk Farm (on the Northern Line), which is a mere couple of minutes walk away. Follow the signs (or the dog-walkers) to Regents Park. Also if you fancy a wander, Camden is an easy 15 minute walk away down Regents Park Road and Chalk Farm Road.
