Harlesden is situated in the northwest of London, in the Borough of Brent. It is north of Acton and south of Wembley and like many districts located on the outskirts of London, it was developed in the 19th century from farming land, and today, still contains some very attractive Victorian properties, which are attracting young professionals to the area due to lower property prices than further in to London. Another factor, which is very attractive for people moving to the area, is Harlesden's reputation as a bohemian centre with a focus on music in the diverse local community. Harlesden has been named 'London's reggae capital' due to the area's strong West Indian community and the area has been attracting immigrants from Ireland, Portugal, Brazil, India and Africa, since the latter half of the 20th century, and this has had a significant impact on the make up of the district, with some very authentic restaurants and some very lively bars and gig venues.
Visitors to Harlesden and the surrounding area can enjoy a drink in some rather unusual drinking establishments such as The Island, which is located in a bunker and has a strong Caribbean vibe, and the more traditional establishments such as McGowan's Irish Bar and The Masons Arms, where you can drink with a friendly crowd.
Boxing fans will also find Harlesden an interesting place to visit, as the area is notable for two Olympic gold medalists, Audley Harrison and James Degale. The area is also notable as the location of the McVitie & Price and Heinz factories, which brought industry into the area. Although Harlesden is mainly a residential area, with some quirky local shops and some historic churches, its main attraction is its proximity to Wembley, just 35 minutes by train, where you can visit the Stadium, to watch football, rugby and huge rock concerts and the Arena, which also shows concerts on a large scale. In nearby Willesden, to the north, you will find Roundwood Park, once called a 'Garden of Eden, without the serpents', the park is a very pleasant green space where you can escape the city, containing a bowling green and a basketball court for local and visiting kids to use. It contains various unusual species of birds and even has turtles in the park's pond and occasionally you will see a fairground there in the summer months.
Harlesden enjoys good rail and tube links. Situated on the Bakerloo line, you can catch the tube to Paddington Station in about 15 minutes, where you can catch the Heathrow Express Train to the airport in just 15 minutes. The Bakerloo line will also take you into central London locations, if you want to see some of the city's sights and attractions. Harlesden Station also has overground links to Euston Station for travel throughout the UK and South Hampstead if you want to visit the stunning Hampstead Heath area. Hotels in the area will be cheaper than in central London, and considering Harlesden's good rail links, it is a good place to explore the city from, although some may feel it is situated too far away from the centre.
