Most of Kilburn is in Brent or Camden, but a small part is also in Westminster. The main thoroughfare running northwest to southeast is Kilburn High Road, part of the modern A5 road which forms the boundary between the boroughs of Brent and Camden. This road dates back to pre-Roman times and is part of the Roman road known as Watling Street. The town of Kilburn has its origins in a 12th Century priory on the banks of the Kilburn Brook. Kilburn today is a busy and multicultural London district. It has the highest Irish population of any London area, as well as a large Afro-Caribbean population. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. With an ever growing population and property in high demand, our Kilburn estate agents are constantly answering enquiries.
In 1980 the Tricycle Theatre was opened in a converted Forester's Hall on Kilburn High Road, north of Buckley Road. The Tricycle is a renowned arts centre, now including a gallery, a cinema and a theatre. It has a particular reputation for political dramas including dramatisations of significant court cases and a play about the US detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which was later introduced on Broadway. Reflecting the culturally diverse local community of Kilburn, and in order to qualify for an Arts Council subsidy, the Tricycle theatre presents many international pieces and films, often in original language with English subtitles, and hosts several social and educational programmes.
Kilburn is also home to Zog House, the revolutionary split-level eco home. It is located on Donaldson Road and was designed and developed by Solidspace.
The houses for sale and to rent in Kilburn are typically large Victorian homes or the traditional red brick style; tall terrace houses also populate the area, which are similarly Victorian in style. Many of these large Victorian houses and mansions have been converted in to apartment blocks, which our letting agents in Kilburn are happy to show you around, along with the area’s modern purpose-built blocks of flats.
