Where do Willesden and surrounding areas locals go?

Oxbridge Tuition

A constant source of highly intelligent Oxford and Cambridge graduates willing to tutor for far less than the going rate.

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...

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 Lexi Cinema

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

Deli Beira

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

Sanzio

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

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 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.

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.

Gladstone Park

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

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!

The Queensbury

This quirky restaurant serves American-style food. On Tuesdays, you can get a burger and a beer for £12 and every other Sunday they have a live jazz night.

The Gallery

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