Where do Willesden locals go?

Deli Beira

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

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 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.

BEER + BURGER

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

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!

Willesden Salvage

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

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!

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!

Sanzio

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

Gladstone Park

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

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 Lexi Cinema

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

Oxbridge Tuition

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

The Masons Arms

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

  1. 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.
