A hidden gem located in between the houses of the Mapesbury Estate, which was formed by the local community. It's a great place to take the kids or just enjoy the tranquillity. Even some of the locals don't know about it!

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.

It’s a super friendly neighbourhood from the shop keepers to our lovely neighbours on our road!
Great community and wonderful volunteers making Cricklewood a great place to be.
I love Child's Hill - can cycle, walk or drive anywhere in minutes. It's classy and low key and has some fabulous greenery or its doorstep.
I love Child's Hill because I am a student who has come from America to study in London. I am housed over in central London but I work over here at Childs Hill Library. I instantly loved this area when I first walked to my internship. It is so different from the bustle of the city and I find it peaceful out here especially when going to the library. Everyone is so nice and I am grateful to be a part of their team. I hope everyone goes out there at least once to visit.
Firstly, Gladstone Park offers much-needed relief from the stresses of Central London. Getting home (in approx. 18 mins) on the tube and taking a walk up on the hills keeps me balanced in mind, body and spirit. It's a proper neighbourhood. We look out for each other. If someone's dog is locked out, we take him/her back home. Last week, my son was visiting, stood on the front balcony and my neighbour rushed out wanting to know who was there. Another neighbour cut down my hedge because he I saw I was struggling with its height. People are friendly, the Jubilee line gets me in and out of inner London quickly, the park is fantastic and the uniquely painted Edwardian houses are gems to admire as I walk through.
I love the restaurants, the parks and the many pubs and bars. But above all, I love the people.
Dollis Hill is a quiet, residential but vibrant area with cafes, pubs and restaurants that haven't been spoilt and retain their old-day charm and simplicity. There is also Gladstone Park that is a hidden gem and one of the largest parks in the area, with amazing outdoor sports facilities, pond, trails and a café.
Dollis Hill is a friendly and safe neighbourhood with a large park with sports groups, playing fields, cafes and a beautiful walled rose garden. The little high street near Dollis Hill Station has all you need (apart from a butchers) - greengrocer, pharmacy, Portuguese restaurant, newsagent, off-licence, convenience store and garage. A small bit of council investment could make a big difference, as it has a lovely, almost village feel.
I love Cricklewood because it is convenient for everything. It's multicultural and there are new and upcoming restaurants.
Gladstone Park is a joggers paradise.
I love the ability to walk around in a quiet green neighborhood, past period houses with friendly families and to the local Tennis club. And yet, only a few minutes walk from the bustling Hampstead villages and West End Lane's great transportation links.
