A locals' guide to Willesden and surrounding areas

"Grade II listed The Crown, Cricklewood is a reminder of Kilburn's history."

Victoria Wellburn

"Kilburn Station's Jubilee line service is a speedy way to get into town and Canary Wharf."

Danielle Edwards

"Cricklewood is the area where West Hampstead, Willesden Green and Kilburn collide! Full of quirky independent cafes, shops and eateries with a huge variety of cultures all around. An up and coming area with huge regeneration plans which will make it the next big thing and the place to be!"

Where do Willesden and surrounding areas locals go?

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.

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.

Mapesbury Dell

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!

Revital

I love the Revital health food store on Willesden's High Road. Stocks all my necessities.

Deli Beira

Fabulous continental food served with a smile.

Gladstone Park

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

O'Farrell's

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

Sanzio

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

Willesden Salvage

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

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 Gallery

A great bar ideal for after work drinks and a good place to take a date!

Childs Hill Library

Caring staff that is always willing to help and has fantastic resources.

The Salusbury Winestore

Sit down with a glass of red, white or rosé and read the brand new book you bought from the local book store.
