Where do Gospel Oak locals go?

Kentish Town Sports Centre

Recently renovated, this leisure centre set in a historic Grade II listed building has a swimming pool and a gym.

Dirty Burger

Really good burgers, brilliant milkshakes and onion rings from a hidden shack at the back of Pizza East.

Parliament Hill

Excellent views of London's skyline, where you can see St Paul's Cathedral, the Shard and the Gherkin. A great place to be when the sun is out!

The Hill

With a menu of freshly prepared lunch and dinner dishes, this place does a great sirloin steak and pepper sauce!

The Bull & Last

A gastro pub with substantial breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as a large selection of beers and ales.

Bistro Laz

A rustic Mediterranean restaurant open from 7am! Grab breakfast in the morning and more traditional Middle-Eastern fare in the evening.


The best European restaurant in London serving gluten free alternatives and delicious pizzas!

Bear + Wolf

Fantastic Sunday brunch and great coffee.

The Armoury Gym

An independent, not that busy, bright gym with lots of windows and natural light, offering good classes and lovely staff too.

Hampstead Heath

Affording one of the best views of London, Hampstead Heath is certainly a peaceful spot to look at the skyline in all its glory!

Highgate Bathing Ponds

Tucked away just off Millfield Lane, it is a lovely quiet place to go and relax and walk - and even better when it is sunny!


For music lovers there is the famous Roundhouse venue, which has amazing views from anywhere inside and great sound for a brilliant night out!

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

Camden Market

Wandering through one of the many stalls in Camden Market, there's always something to catch the eye!

Shaka Zulu

A little taste of Africa. Great ambience, incredible South African Zulu statues and if that doesn't win you over, the all day 2-4-1 cocktails will!
