Deli Beira

Fabulous continental food served with a smile.

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 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.

Oxbridge Tuition

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

BEER + BURGER

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

Sanzio

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

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.

Willesden Salvage

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

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!

Revital

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

The Lexi Cinema

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

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 Masons Arms

A fantastic pub with an amazing garden, Sunday roasts, summer barbecues, DJs, quizzes and comedy nights. A lovely community feel.

Gladstone Park

Great views of the local area & of London Town! Beautiful trees & great cafe at the top of the hill!

Gladstone Park

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