Historic Primrose Hill – Sunday 27th April

Event Details


Meeting at 2.30pm at St Mary’s Church, Primrose Hill

Led by Martin Sheppard, the author of Primrose Hill: A History, this walk will explore the hill’s remarkable past. Once owned by a hospital for leprous maidens and then Eton, it was the site of many duels as well as of a Martian landing in 1898. Twenty extraordinary plans to build on it included a replica of the Parthenon and a giant statue of Shakespeare.
