Kilburn certainly packs a punch! It’s a cultural melting pot where you can feast your senses on languages, foods and energies from all over the world. It is fast-paced, exciting and crucially, has refuges of calm all around. Living in Kilburn will grant you access to the Jubilee Line, the Bakerloo Line and the Overground.
The A5 (Shoot-Up Hill turning into Maida Vale) is at the very heart of Kilburn, and it truly has it all. Circling the recently done-up Grange Park and station stretch are a plethora of exciting culinary spots. As you spiral away from the hubbub of the main road, the roads swiftly become residential and the properties, in our humble opinion, are stunning.
Kilburn’s energy stands up to the comfortable and frilly bohemia of its neighbours West Hampstead, Maida Vale and Kensal Rise. It’s a foodies’ paradise with the best wings in London and some astonishing Burmese. Along the same stretch, you’ll find Ariana II, the London outpost of the legendary NYC Afghani joint, a cracking Irish pub known for its live music, and of course, the legendary Kiln Theatre.
We are massive fans of Kilburn, but some people may need a bit of respite from the intensity of that highstreet! Fortunately, your options for green, tranquil space are endless. The aforementioned Grange Park is one of our favourite residential park spaces in the city, whilst Paddington Old Cemetery, Queen’s Park and Little Venice are all easily accessible by foot.
