Kentish Town is in the London Borough of Camden in North London. You can find our Keatons office on Kentish Town High Street, a two-minute walk from Kentish Town station. This location gives us excellent access to surrounding areas, allowing our team to cover nearby Camden and up as far as Highgate and Hampstead. In fact, many of the properties we represent are close to Hampstead Heath – 320 hectares of ancient, unspoilt woodland that is frequently voted as one of London’s most popular open spaces; ideal for families, morning runs, escaping the city and taking in nature.
It’s also worth noting that Hampstead Health is home to Parliament Hill Lido, a retro outdoor swimming pool that is open year-round. On the subject of things to do and see, Hampstead Village is known for its Georgian architecture, boutique shops and upmarket restaurants. In many of these neighbourhoods, especially Kentish Town, the streets are lined with colourful period homes. Keats House (once home to Keats, the poet) and Freud Museum London (once home to the famous psychoanalyst) are both nearby.
As sales and lettings agents in Kentish Town, we’re often asked what brings people to the area. One of the major draws is the balance between the sense of community while also being within easy reach of the city for commuters. Kentish Town has its own social scene happening complete with Camden Town Market, a pretty canal-side spot with everything from live music, vintage clothing and world cuisine all in one densely-packed location. The Forum in Kentish Town hosts an eclectic programme of live events and has previously shone the spotlight on acts such as Van Morrison, Noel Gallagher and Amy Winehouse. Last but not least, what better way to end the working week than with the smell of hops wafting out from Camden Town Brewery, home to the famous Hells Lager. The brewery is actually further out than Camden Town, nestled down a mews under the cobbled arches of Kentish Town West.
For those who enjoy the freedom of travel, Kentish Town is well connected. The mainline runs towards St. Albans and Luton to the north, and Brighton and Gatwick to the south. Kentish Town also has excellent Underground connections on the Northern line along with regular bus routes into the centre. However, the best thing about living in this part of London is probably the sunsets. Kentish Town is ideally positioned to soak up the last of the day’s rays and even has its own hashtag #kentishtownsunset.
