Kilburn is an area in North-western London and is not very far from Central London. It is well connected by bus and underground and the overground trains too. I was here for visiting some friends and I found the area is definitely not the best right now, but is up and coming and will certainly be a good area in... More

Kilburn is a London suburb in the north west of the city. Very busy with many different immigrant ethnic groups coexisting, it has a vibe and a flavour that is uniquely it's own. Lots of shops, restaurants & bars. Busy.

Little to praise and lots to be worried about. Busy with locals in and out of the cheap shops. One decent pub 'the old bell'.

Kilburn is yet another example of the diversity, the vibrancy and the energy of this wonderful city of London. Yes it has been robbed of some of its ethnic retail identity with the arrival of the usual retail brands that continue to choke not just the high streets of Kilburn but throughout the country. It is still however a wonderful... More

Kilburn has some good, cheap bars and a few decent shops but many of the ones I used to go to Kilburn especially for have now closed down to be replaced by Poundland and similar
