Where do Harlesden and surrounding areas locals go?

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!

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!

The Aeronaut

Arguably one of Ealing borough's most unique venues. Circus themed, they have circus performances on Friday and Saturday evenings and they even have their own microbrewery onsite. Definitely one of the best beer gardens in London and a lively, fun place to go for a few drinks after a long week!

Habaneros

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.

Hanger Hill Park

A great day out in the sun and a there's big pitch and putt course too!

The Lexi Cinema

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

Bridge Cafe

This cafe serves the best baked potato in West Hampstead!

BEER + BURGER

Huge selection of beers and burgers opposite Willesden Green Underground Station.

Deli Beira

Best custard tarts outside of Lisbon! This deli sells products from Portugal, Spain and Brazil, too.

Paradise

'Paradise By Way of Kensal Green', to give it's full name, is a British restaurant, bar and club all rolled into one. Don't miss out on the burger!

The Station House

A little gem located in the heart of Acton in Poet's Corner and a lovely place to go for a bite to eat - great selection of food and very tasty. The Sunday lunch is AMAZING! Really nice paved garden out front with lots of plants and they let dogs in too!

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.

Willesden Salvage

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

The Tricycle

A fantastic theatre away from the West End showing outstanding original productions. Well worth a visit. Also has a cinema and a bar.

The Black Lion

A lovely period pub, restaurant and guesthouse. Beautiful décor and very friendly.
