Most amenities are on the periphery.

The great thing about Kensal Green is the mix of people and the easy way in which they mix. In the nineteenth century many came from Wales. I think there is still a Welsh language school nearby. There were Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe. Then many people came from Ireland, Italy, from the Caribbean, from Asia, from Africa, from the Middle East, France and Eastern Europe. Each is reflected in shops, cafes and bars. With easy access to West End theatres and proximity to the old BBC studios there have long been actors and TV people around. In recent years they've been joined by more fashionable people and then by wealthier people; but there is still a pleasant mix and the area remains more shabby than chic.

Transport

The main link into central London is the Bakerloo underground line, from Kensal Green station. It is reasonably fast (about half an hour to wherever), frequent and reliable. But the carriages are crowded and ancient. Also from Kensal Green, you can catch a handy and fast overground train to Euston (about 12 mins). Willesden Junction, a little to the west, adds another useful line which runs (at a rather leisurely pace around North London. There are a fair few buses, but they tend to get snagged in jams, in surrounding areas. For the same reason, it is not a good place for motorists, though local roads are rather quiet. Cycling is popular, but it is hilly.

Community

My street is quiet. There is hardly any traffic and no other noise. People tend to keep themselves to themselves, though underlying there is a neighbourly spirit - seen in the recent Corona crisis.

Amenities

From pretty-well the time it was built-up (around 1900) Kensal Green has always been an adjunct to central London. It is primarily residential. People move-in for the easy commute. That's reflected in the shops, which gather around stations. Most amenities are on the periphery. Just to the east is Kensal Rise, with a locally-run cinema (the Lexi) and swish, fashionable and expensive restaurants, bars and boutiques. Just west is Harlesden, with more practical and affordable shops. The nearest big supermarket (Sainsburys) is a little to the south, in Ladbroke Grove. Most of Kensal Green's own cafes shops are in College Rd, which leads to K Green station (Bakerloo and overground). They are small and friendly. Also on College Rd is a library (confusingly called Kensal Rise Library) run for and by local people - and the centre of the local community. There are good nurseries and a mix of schools. There are good parks, a swimming pool, gym and tennis club.

London’s little gem

Love the trendy feeling which many new stores are bringing to the area

Transport

Transport links within the local area are great as there is easy access to several buses into central London and beyond, there is access to the jubilee and bakerloo lines on the London Underground as well as overground access from kensal rise. Cycle routes are also not an issue within the area

Community

A tight knit community of neighbours, always have parking available, a gorgeous park a stones throw away and have never had complaints regarding traffic noise or anything of the sort

Amenities

There is an ever growing range of shops within the local area, from Italian deli’s to boutique gift stores such as Verandah, there are also several trendy new cafes and bars within the area, as well as well known bakeries such as gails. A solid choice of all cuisines is available for dining/takeaway in the area. Additionally, there is a good range of supermarkets in the area, including some independent supermarkets such as the newly opened Kensal Store. Overall, an area which isn’t missing anything but new things are consistently coming to make the area even better.

on my street there is families living. it's very quiet at night... very depressing sometimes. no friends close by... people are non social.
