Vibrant, diverse area with great local amenities including wonderful green spaces!

I love NW5 for many reasons. Highlights include being within walking distance to Hampstead Heath, Waterlow Park and Highgate village as well as being very accessible to Regents Park, Regents Canal, Kings Cross and central London. The local atmosphere is friendly as far as London neighbourhoods go, naturally you feel it more if you shop locally, eat or buy coffee at one of the locals - Bean About Town, Kentish Town Stores and Saint Espresso are all great coffee shops with very friendly staff. The area isn’t too trendy in a hipster way, but is cool in its own vibrant, diverse demographic. It’s also somewhere between a ‘gentrified’ area and not, which gives it a more relaxed energy without pretentiousness or student nightlife. The area is suitable for most, including families with children and pets as there are nice green spaces, nurseries and lots of big Victorian style houses to accommodate.

Transport

Wherever you are in NW5, chances are you won’t be far from one of the nearby overground or tube stations (or if buses are your thing there are some great routes into central and east London). Kentish Town tube station offers the northern line which is convenient either as direct route or to change at a different station. There is also the overground station connected to this, along with my favourite mode of transport - Thameslink! As well as other overground trains to Luton, South London and other places further afield. Then you also have within short walking distance depending on where you’re located, Kentish Town West and Gospel Oak overground stations which you can hop on to East or West London in much less time than you’d imagine. Rush hour is of course a thing, although the overground and thameslink aren’t as busy as tube stations. If you can leave after 9am it’s much nicer, and same again later on in the day. There are also great cycle lanes and quiet routes into the city, as more places become cycle friendly it’s becoming increasingly the best way to travel.

Community

The area is fairly mixed in terms of who lives here, which I think is what makes it so great! There are families, young professionals, older home owners and generally everything in between. Not a visible student community although I’m sure there are some. The street is relatively calm, despite being so close to the high street and with passing vehicles there’s generally very little traffic noise. Depending which part you live on there is generally street parking available, although many have parking at the back or in a side space. Bin collections are weekly and reliable, and social behaviour is completely fine. The occasional disorderly person as with most places, but nothing significant.

Amenities

Kentish Town has a wonderful range of local shops, restaurants and bars along the main high street to suit all tastes and needs. The main high street is the most popular area, however you are also within walking distance to Tufnell Park and Brecknock Road which have more independent shops, grocery stores and local businesses. I often find myself spoilt for choice, which isn’t a bad thing! The variation makes it a wonderful place to live, and local bars such as Ladies and Gents, Nowhere Special and The Pineapple pub add to this excitement and offer great local hangouts.

Moved 6 months ago and really like it!

As I can see the area, I feel like it is an area of an upsurge. I believe that as time passes, more people are going to realise how nice and pretty it is to sctually live there, and more developments are going to take place. Families are very safe to stay here and I can recommend it without a shine of a doubt!

Transport

Kentish Town Underground Station is pretty close to my property. This makes it really easy for me to move around and get to my job quickly and on time, without any significant worrying.

Community

I have to say, comparing this home to my previous one, I can see improvements in many areas. Firstly, there is more parking available and the municipality is very responsible and on time in collecting bins and trash. People are very friendly and it is rarely that we hear about a theft there, so we feel very safe. Not too many cars pass so that is good

Amenities

The people in my neighborhood are very good! Moved 6 months ago and really like it! There are a number of restaurants and pubs, a very big and nice open park that I always like to hang out!
