Live the Cricklewood life
With a strong community feel, lots of pleasant open spaces in the local area and superb transport links for getting around London, there are plenty of reasons why you may be thinking of buying a home in Cricklewood.

Things to see and do in Cricklewood
From food-growing projects to open-air opera at pretty park Mapesbury Dell on a pleasant summer’s evening, you can immerse yourself in a delightful local atmosphere in Cricklewood. With an array of shops, eateries and watering holes along Cricklewood Broadway, Gladstone Park is also on the edge of town with its play areas, sports facilities, duck pond, cafe and art gallery.
Whether you’re going for a walk around Brent Reservoir or heading over to Hampstead Heath, you’ll also have Brent Cross close at hand, which has seen some of London’s biggest and best regeneration in recent years. Museums, parks, natural spaces and a thriving high street all combine to make this a great place to live.
The good things keep coming if you have kids, thanks to a selection of outstanding local schools. Our Lady of Grace RC Infant and Nursery School, Our Lady of Grace Catholic Junior School and St Agnes RC School are all primary schools in Ofsted’s top bracket, while the local secondary, Hampstead School, is ranked as good.
Cricklewood transport links
If good transport links are important to you, Cricklewood won’t let you down. The town’s train station offers Thameslink services to a selection of destinations, while Willesden Green and Kilburn stations just to the south are on the Tube’s Jubilee line. Just to the north, Brent Cross and Golders Green are both on the Northern Line, opening up even more possibilities for reaching an array of central spots without even needing to change train.
The Cricklewood property scene
Cricklewood has a good variety of terraces, semis and detached homes, which encompass the Victorian, Edwardian, Twenties and Thirties eras. Conversions are also popular, and help to keep house prices only a little higher than the London average.
This a great part of London to buy a new home in, and you can do just that close to town along Hendon’s Moorhen Drive. Whether the thought of living right next to Brent Reservoir floats your boat or you’re also looking at nearby areas such as Wembley, don’t miss the Government’s London Help to Buy scheme if you’re in need of some extra support with your purchase.
