Jimmy Carr’s private life in gorgeous North London village – houses sell for £1.8million

Primrose Hill feels cut off from the rest of London. This is enhanced by the fact it doesn’t have its own dedicated transport hub. 

The nearest Underground station is Chalk Farm, around a 10-minute walk away, and both Swiss Cottage and St John’s Wood are close by too. It is Zone 2, meaning it’s close to the city centre, but far enough away to keep its small-village atmosphere.

In the 90s and noughties, the area was populated by the “The Primrose Hill Set” of model Kate Moss, actor Jude Law and his then-wife Sadie Frost who centred around Supernova Heights, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher’s house at the time.

While many of the original set have moved away, the neighbourhood has been established as a celeb hub. In the years since, Primrose Hill has at different times been home to the likes of Jamie and Jools Oliver, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, Rachel Weisz, Daniel Craig, Nick Grimshaw, Rita Ora, Richard Madden, Claire Foy, Jenna Coleman, James Norton, Amber Heard, David Walliams, Lily James, Stefano Gabbana and Harry Styles.
