In the run-up to the bonfire night and festive period The Royal Parks and Camden Police are reminding people not to bring fireworks or paper lanterns to Primrose Hill.

Visitors to Primrose Hill are welcome to enjoy the views and watch the firework displays taking place across the capital but the personal use of fireworks and lanterns is prohibited under Park Regulations.

An increasing number of people have been coming to Primrose Hill to celebrate and enjoy the various displays taking place in London on bonfire night and New Year’s Eve. For the comfort and safety of visitors and residents, Primrose Hill will close at 9pm during the bonfire night period and at 1am on New Year’s.

In previous years visitors to the hill on New Year’s Eve have dropped a substantial amount of litter, so The Royal Parks and Camden Police are continuing to urge people to respect the park and their fellow visitors by taking litter home or placing it in the bins provided.

Police officers will be at all the gates to Primrose Hill to stop anyone attempting to bring in fireworks or lanterns.  Anyone who has any will be asked to surrender them to officers for safe disposal and may not be allowed into the park.

Throughout the firework season and in particular, Saturday, November 5 and Saturday, December 31, officers based in the parks will be supported by Camden Police, assisting with crowd control and making sure everyone clears the park safely.
