Where do NW5 locals go?

Dirty Burger

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

Stingray

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

The Bull & Last

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

Kentish Town Sports Centre

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

Bistro Laz

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

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!

The Hill

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

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!

Roundhouse

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

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!

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!

Camden Market

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

Gilgamesh

A restaurant/bar/club serving pan-Asian food cooked by the amazing chef Ian Pengelley. You can dine and enjoy the bar area at the same time.

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!

inSpiral

Serving organic food and drink ideal for a quick brunch. Wholesome meals, delicious salads and a variety of smoothies that are nice too.
