A Taste of Brondesbury Park
Like its close neighbour just across the railway tracks, Queen’s Park, Brondesbury Park is a popular spot for families and young professionals.
It is however, a bit of a misnomer as there’s not actually a park there anymore. The name dates from the 18th century when the area was a landscaped garden belonging to Lady Salusbury at her ‘Brandsbury’ home.
Today if it’s open space you seek, then there’s Tiverton Green with its fantastic kids’ cycling, scooting and skating paths and an outdoor gym for the grown-ups. And, of course, it’s just a stone’s throw to Queen’s Park. South Hampstead Cricket Club is barely more than a well-hit six away.
Brondesbury Park homes are mostly spacious double-fronted 1930s properties, many with those London rarities off-street parking and a generous garden. Residents have much to choose from within a short distance. Kilburn has the wonderful Tricycle Theatre, with its cinema not only showing the latest blockbusters and art films, but often hosting talks with directors and actors, while if you’re hungry, head to Willesden Green for a wide choice of eateries.
Finchley Road is just three stops away on the overground, with a range of restaurants in and around the O2 centre. It’s also the place to go for furnishings, with design stores including Habitat, Bo Concept and Roche Bobois.
Finding spacious family living at a reasonable price in Brondesbury Park is, as they say, a walk in the park.
