WILLESDEN GREEN, NW2 & NW6

The hamlet of ‘Willesdune’, meaning ‘Hill of the Spring’, dates back to 939 AD. Its architecture is now primarily Edwardian and 1930s in style, and attracts young professionals as well as families.

This booming residential neighbourhood in North-West London has excellent transport links. Willesden Green was the setting for Zadie Smith’s novel White Teeth and the inspiration for pop songs by The Kinks and The Clash.

The creative momentum continues with an impressive, brand-new Cultural Centre opening in 2015, expanding the area’s strong sense of artistic and community pride.
