Willesden in the borough of Brent, North West London was a part of Middlesex until 1965. Currently, it's considered one of the rising stars within the capital with house prices said to be rivalling those in Chelsea and Knightsbridge, especially near to Willesden Green Station.
Willesden has been noted in many famous creative works, including the novel White Teeth by Zadie Smith, and TV shows The Last Detective and Jonathon Creek. The area has changed dramatically over the last few decades with regeneration now making it a popular middle class location. A mostly suburban area, there are several ethnic minorities that reside here too. A local church, sports centre and college make the area ideal for families and a sense of community. The high street was overhauled in the 1980's to avoid foreclosure, while housing has also improved since this decade to now boast several expensive properties. The tube, buses and nearby major roads ensures that Willesden is well connected to other parts of London, making it perfect for those who have to work or travel to the heart of the capital.
