"In 2001, after 10 years of reported sightings, a lynx was captured in Cricklewood. She had become known as the "Beast of Barnet" and was rehomed in London Zoo."

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

Willesden quote

Oliver Browne

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!

Willesden quote

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

About Willesden

Willesden is an area in North West London which forms part of the London Borough of Brent. It is situated 5 miles (8 km) north west of Charing Cross. The area has strong links to Ireland and has a sizable Irish population, as well as a large Afro-Caribbean community. In the late 1980s, traders were given money to revamp the High Street to prevent it closing. This worked and Willesden since then has been rejuvenated into a thriving suburb of London.
