- NW10 is a lovely, vibrant, cosmopolitan part of the city. Most of the houses around the NW10 area are large Victorian properties and this adds an air of sophistication to the area. Towards Kensal Rise you have an eclectic bohemian mix of people and towards Harlesden you have a friendly multi-cultural mix of people. There are large parks in and around NW10 from where you can chill, meet friends for a coffee or do some jogging. If you live near Willesden Junction it has fantastic links to all parts of the city - North, South, East, West, as it has great Overground connections. The BBC is also nearby and you may spot a presenter or two, commuting to and from work.
