Where is it?
Main action in the area is to the right of Kilburn station and the apartment is situated to the immediate left of the station. Come out of the station turn left and the first building is the apartment. Turn right and you find plenty many shops to do your shopping with some open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
GROCERY SHOPPING: The first shop is a Tesco Express (Supermarket) that is open until late. In front of it is the Bus Stop with buses from Central London (16, 189, 32, 332) stopping. Opposite this is a local grocery shop where you can buy all sorts of kitchen requirements and cooking ingredients including vegetables, fruits as well as alcoholic drinks. Pretty much anything that a small supermarket would offer!
Continuing on the opposite pavement, there is as small local coffee shop, then a convenience store followed by a pizza restaurant that does not look much inviting but in fact does very nice wood oven cooked pizzas. They also do deliveries and have an all year round “Buy 1, Get 1 free” deal.
Walk a little further and there is the Sainsbury’s Local (Supermarket). Further from the other 2 mentioned above so far, you might find things maybe a little cheaper here. Otherwise, chances are, whatever is sold here, you’ll be able to source them from the other 2 shops that are nearer to the flat.
RESTAURANTS & PUBS:At this point, you are only about 200-300 meters away from the apartment and shops leave way to restaurants, pubs and café’s. There are several of them offering a variety of different tastes. “Istanbul Mangal” is one of the nearer ones that offer kebabs but also very nice and cheap Turkish traditional dishes. Before that, however, on the corner is the North London Tavern that is a typical tavern / pub with drinks and some snacks. Between this and the Istanbul Mangal are local grocery shops, fast food shops such as the “Peri Peri” or the “Chicken Cottage” both local answers to the KFC’s.
Opposite these is the Brondes Age Pub, a much larger and brighter pub comparing to North London Tavern, it has an outside area, inside seating area with leather seats, also showing almost every major Premiere League game on TV.
Opposite this and after the Istanbul Mangal is the Brondesbury overground train station. This is a particularly good train for those who want to travel to areas such as Dalston or Hackney (trending, buzzing areas), Camden Road (for Camden Town and Camden Market), Highbury Islington (for Angel and Islington areas) as well as Stratford with its highlight, the Westfield Shopping Centre.
SHOPPING: Kilburn High road carries on with pretty much the same amount of variety of shops for quite some distance, offering pretty much everything that you might be looking for whilst staying in this area (TK Max, Argos, Primark etc).
