Not one of the greenest of London's boroughs but ironically known largely for a small patch of green turf in Wembley; the new stadium with its iconic arch lie at the cultural heart of the area. The next most well-known landmark in the borough is the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Neasden Temple) which is symbolic of the large Hindu population in the area; over half of the population in Brent defines itself as non white-british.
Brent is a densely populated multi-cultural, outer-london borough which has the highest number of people from different backgrounds in England. It is one of only two areas in the country where the majority of the population are from a Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) background. Brent’s social profile reflects a young, family-friendly population. The borough is home to a significant share of knowledge workers generating above-average income and prosperity by national standards. However, this wealth is moderated by the borough’s wider socioeconomic conditions, including high levels of deprivation in parts.
