Looking down on London


Viewing point at top of Primrose Hill,  London,  May 2017

As promised, I am clambering up high to give you an aerial glimpse of London. I am taking you to a different viewpoint each month in 2017.

January took us to the outdoor gallery atop St Paul’s Cathedral; February took us onto a rooftop terrace close to St Paul’s; in March we sailed west along the Thames and up in a cable car; in April we loitered high above the Thames opposite St Paul’s; in May, we are going more rural.


This month we are on Primrose Hill, a 265 m high park located on the northern side of Regent’s Park.  It is an easy walk from Regent’s Canal or Regent’s Park, and the stroll is worth it for the views alone.  The views across London are excellent, with plenty of greenery in the forground.

  1. Dear Debbie, or whatever your name is, I am none other than Detective Tony Pastry of New Scotland Yard. My informant has told me that you are the Red Herring, the notorious art thief. And my informant is very reliable: He recently sold me the Moon for £500 and a pint of mild. He’s very big in NASA, you know. He has also informed me that the Pink Panther films are not fictitious but are in fact a series of documentaries about a real Inspector Clouseau. Since then I have modelled my entire career on Clouseau’s achievements and it has not been easy, I can tell you. If you do not immediately hand yourself in at the nearest police station, I will have to come and put you under arrest.


    • What an arresting character you are! I sense that my prowling around the heights of London with camera has made you somewhat nervous. June’s photos are about to appear and I am now issuing no hints on where I plan to be in july!
