London's north-west has Hammersmith as one of its transport hubs, dominated by the Hammersmith and Chiswick flyovers. Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras stations provide rail links to destinations north and south of the city and to the continent beyond. The area is well-served by bus, tube and overground train connections.
North West London comprises the local authority areas of Camden, Islington, Barnet, Brent, Harrow, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham. The northern part of the borough of Westminster is sometimes considered a part of North West London, too.
North West London has plenty of green open space, as it contains not only Hyde Park and Regent's Park, but also the semi-rural expanse of Hampstead Heath. Other claims to fame include Wembley stadium, Lord's cricket ground (the legendary birthplace of the game), the British Library, London Zoo, Madame Tussauds and trendy Camden Market.
The NW1, NW3 and NW8 postcodes include some of the most expensive residential property in London.
