Like Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill was once part of a great chase appropriated by Henry VIII. Later, in 1841, it became Crown property and in 1842 an Act of Parliament secured the land as public open space. Since the Victorian era, Primrose Hill has been known as being of the more fashionable and prosperous districts in the urban belt that lies between Central London and the outer suburbs, a tradition that remains to this day.
