Kentish Town

Your All In London guide to Kentish Town

It is believed that Kentish Town became a residential area within London during the reign of King John in 1208. During this reign, Kentish Town was a busy hamlet with plenty of farming activity and light industry.

During the 19th century, the district became subject to much modernisation which meant that much of the rural part of the area was lost and the density of the population increased dramatically.

After World War Two, Kentish Town was largely rebuilt, which has resulted in a very modern feel to the neighbourhood, with an influx of new shops and residential properties. There are now multiple shops offering a range of experiences for all tastes.
