Willesden Green

Your All In London guide to Willesden Green

Willesden Green is one of the UK’s most ethnically diverse areas, with large Afro-Caribbean and Asian communities, as well as a considerable Irish population. The area was once very industrial, with many factories sprouting up after World War I; housing was built to accommodate the workers, thereby increasing the population. From the 60s onwards, many immigrants began to settle here; more recently there has been an influx of young professionals who can’t afford to live in Notting Hill. The high street is rather bare, with a few cheap shops nestled amidst the cafes and pubs, but there are plenty of green spaces, and Willesden is also home to London’s largest cycling club.
