As Estate Agents in London we like to keep our ears to the ground for exciting areas popping up around the capital. Kentish Town (NW5), situated in the north west of London is one of these areas, and if you’re not familiar with the area I’d get acquainted with it ASAP! It’s one of those places where you may not have thought to visit or live but it’s becoming increasingly popular, so if you’re thinking of moving here it could be a great place to invest. Whether it’s culture, outdoor space, food or socialising you’re after, you will not be short of things to do in Kentish Town!
Eating out is easy in Kentish Town, you have an array of gastro pubs and old boozers to choose from including The Grafton, Southampton Arms, Junction Tavern, and for a good quiz, cheese and gossip head to The Pineapple! There are good cheap restaurants such as Stingray – a lovely family run restaurant serving delicious pizzas and other Italian fayre. The Chicken Shop does what it says on the tin – a delicious restaurant with chicken being the main focus served with mouth-watering sides. Its popularity has demanded it open many other Chicken Shops in other parts of London, but Kentish Town was the first ever Chicken Shop! Pizza East is a funky establishment serving – yes you’ve guessed it – pizza! Both the Chicken Shop and Pizza East are part of the trendy Soho House group.
The Kentish Town Forum, built in 1934 it’s an art deco building which was originally used as a cinema; it’s now a world famous concert venue, playing host to many popular bands.
If you’re looking to get out and about, breathe in some fresh air and walk on grass you’re not far from Hampstead Heath. A huge, beautiful open space to go and relax on a summer’s day, or for the astronomists of you there is the Whitestone Pond Observatory – the only one in London.
For retail therapy there are a number of quirky shops around, including the Dandy Lion Market – a monthly fixture at The Oxford pub, selling all things vintage which takes place on the first Saturday of each month.
For the culture vultures you have the NW5 art trail! A few small local galleries housing some fantastic art, to while away your weekends.
