London area of NW6 guide

What to do and where to stay in London's NW6 neighbourhood

Kilburn and West Hampstead take up much of the NW6 area, in another culturally diverse part of the city. Kilburn has the largest Irish population of any London district as well as a significant Afro-Caribbean community. Home to local landmarks such as The Tricycle Theatre, Gaumont State Cinema and the St Augustine's Church, Kilburn is a busy area and is identified in the London Plan, a document written by the Mayor, as one of 35 'major centres' in London. West Hampstead is a popular leisure destination for many living in North London due to its own Jubilee Line tube stop and proximity to the Metropolitan Line at Finchley Road. A high concentration of cafes, bakeries and shops create a village-like atmosphere during the daytime and the area is also extremely vibrant at night, with an array of bars and restaurants open for business. Stephen Fry, Matt Lucas, Lily Allen and Hugh Laurie are all thought to reside in the district.
