Why not explore the nearby areas of Willesden, Harlesden, Kensal Green, Brondesbury, Queen's Park, Kilburn, Cricklewood, West Hampstead, South Hampstead and Ladbroke Grove

"The Greek revival chapel at Kensal Green cemetery is equipped with hydraulic lifts to take the deceased down to the catacombs, including such illustrious figures as Isambard Kingdom Brunel, WH Smith of the high street chain fame and perhaps most strangely General James Barry - who was discovered upon his death to have been a woman."

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

Willesden Green quote

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!
