- The transport is brilliant. Location is betwee zone 2 and 3 and therefore good. Lots of shops so very handy. I love Willesden Green.
- Willesden Green has a mixed community and some very beautiful properties. It is only 30 minutes from Centre of London. Heathrow is 45 minutes by car and a direct train from Cricklewood will take you to Luton Airport in 30 minutes. Trendy Queens Park (farmers Market), Notting Hill, The famous Portobello Market, up and Coming Kensal Green/Rise are all within walking distance. 3 sport centres are within walking distance, Cannon's Willesden Leisure Centre and Fitness first. And there is the fabulous, Glastone, Roundwood, King Edwards, Queens Park and plus our very own little park across the road from the house. What can I say!
- Great area, with parks, pubs and restaurants nearby.
- Willesden Green shed it's up and coming pretext three years ago with the arrival of a massive Foxton's that brought the new affluence of West Hampstead and Queen's Park to it's doorstep. Following on in quick succession was a Sainsbury's Metro, Costa, Spice 6 and other excellent restaurants and bars. Not to mention the Willesden Green Tube facelift with Kensington style wider Street Cafe pavement areas, bike bays and plush red tarmac and all around the hub of the Station. Walk a bit further and see the novel herbacious bordered tree lined roads. After dragging it's feet for too long, Willesden Green finally arrived.
- Willesden Green is an area of Edwardian streets with most of the houses converted into flats. The population are 50% well settled Londoners but enlivened with a French, Polish, Brazilian transient population. Local shops are good with Brent Cross mall a 15 minute bus ride away. Lots of pubs with music and a good range of restaurants. Excellent transport links to central London, the City and Canary Wharf.
- There is a beautiful park (Glandstone park), the LIDL is nearby, it's well connected to Jubilee line and to Crickelwood Thameslink
