Where do NW10 locals go?

Willesden Salvage

Everything from fireplaces to vintage travel trunks, amazing antiques to helping you tell the time...

The Masons Arms

A fantastic pub with an amazing garden, Sunday roasts, summer barbecues, DJs, quizzes and comedy nights. A lovely community feel.


The best butchers in North West London. All the meat is free range and they sell the best steak you'll ever taste!

Gladstone Park

My favourite park to jog around, as the hills can be very challenging!

The Lexi Cinema

A great Indie cinema run by volunteers showing mainstream films and live opera. All their proceeds go to charity too.

Sparkle O'Hara

A fabulous vintage and new clothes store run by a lovely lady, selling beautiful jewellery too. Everything is sold at an amazing price!


Amazing gourmet burgers from tame lemon and herb to those that like the heat on full blast! All meals are super reasonable in price, with fries and a drink included.

The Queensbury

This quirky restaurant serves American-style food. On Tuesdays, you can get a burger and a beer for £12 and every other Sunday they have a live jazz night.

Wormwood Scrubs Park

At the weekend it's like a little slice of the USA here in the UK! Amazing little league games played by loads of people and great food trucks selling hot dogs, pulled pork etc. A little bit of alternative relaxation in this busy bustling city of ours!


Great food and atmosphere. I love this cute little Italian restaurant.

Karmarama Café

Situated in Gladstone Park, this café serves amazing breakfasts, great coffee and baked treats straight from the oven, including mouth-watering cakes. It's open from Friday to Sunday.

The Queensbury

Situated right by Willesden Green Underground Station, a handily located local for a casual drink or a good meal. A great place to watch sports events, although it does fill up easily. It also hosts weekly jazz sessions.

Little Wormwood Scrubs

The absolute golden nugget of North Kensington Village is the newly transformed Little Wormwood Scrubs. It's now a hot spot for us locals in W10 to walk our dogs...

London Designer Outlet

Shopping, cinema and dining all under one roof and with a good selection of restaurants too.

Oxbridge Tuition

A constant source of highly intelligent Oxford and Cambridge graduates willing to tutor for far less than the going rate.

"I love the hip and youthful vibe that's creeping into the area - The Shop is great for quirky cocktails, and The Whippet Inn has a great range of lagers and ales. It's really easy to get into central London and has some great independent stores."

"Friendly neighbours. Entrepeneurial, creative, cosmopolitan community. Local independent shops but close to Kensington, Brent Cross and Westfield. Attractive Victorian and Edwardian houses with good sized gardens and lots of trees so quiet with good parks and open space.

The council now has £4 million, which are being spent on upgrading the public realm on Station Road and the centre of Harlesden,following consultation and work with local residents.

Local resident

"The Lexi Cinema on Chamberlayne Road - a beautiful boutique cinema with a real community feel, which also donates all its profits to charity. It's staffed by local volunteers, sells great wine, and has one of the most eclectic programmes of any cinema in London! In the summer, they also do outdoor cinema in the local parks..."
