A collection of small London villages in the London Borough of Camden and Brent, situated in north west London. West Hampstead is the most established and most well recognised and arguably the largest, Queens Park is the most desirable, South Hampstead is the most central and perhaps the smallest geographical area. Kilburn is the least popular of these areas, principally due to the Kilburn High Road being a very busy and inferior high street.
All four areas comprise detached houses and flat conversions, along with purpose built apartment schemes. The areas are verdant and leafy with many attractive tree lined residential, suburban roads, such as Crediton Hill, Priory Road and Goldhurst Terrace.
The architecture is a mixture of mid Victorian italianette villas, with inter-war and post war buildings. The overwhelming feeling is a comfortable family environment.
This is an urban neighbourhood with limited public green space. Queen’s Park to the west or Regent’s Park to the east provide the closest outside space.
