"Handsome period properties sit on tree-lined roads in Brondesbury Park..."

Oliver Browne

"I can't think of a place with better transport links - you can be at Bond Street in only 13 minutes!"

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 Green locals go?

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!

Deli Beira

Fabulous continental food served with a smile.

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.

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.

Revital

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

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!

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...

The Lexi Cinema

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

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!

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 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!

Viva! Sing Spanish @ The Yard

Gracelands Yard,
From birth, infants make no distinction between music, language, singing and speech. Children can imitate the rhythm of a language long before saying the words. Young children often reproduce other languages with perfect pronunciation. Listening to music in a foreign language is a fantastic way of learning single words and phrases in context. Website
