Moving to London’s Northwest Side
While the posh, stately, and leafy character of many west London neighborhoods have made the region relatively pricey, Queen’s Park apartments are still considered a good value. Less dodgy than its Kilburn neighbor, Queen’s Park is more similar to nearby Maida Vale with its village atmosphere and green space.
The actual 30-acre Queen’s Park is a tranquil city retreat with an ornamental garden and facilities for tennis, pétanque, putting, and a children’s playground and petting zoo. It was also the origin of Queen’s Park Rangers FC, which now plays in Shepherd’s Bush. Where additional outdoor recreation is concerned, Queen’s Park likewise benefits from proximity to Paddington Recreation Ground, which contains a fitness center, athletics track, and pitches for football and cricket.
Overall, the area is ideal for families and more affordable than comparable neighborhoods that non-locals usually consider like St. John’s Wood or Maida Vale. Queen’s Park apartments are abundant in the southern, Westminster part of the neighborhood, and its northern counterpart in the borough of Brent is a great area for finding single-family houses in London.
Queen’s Park station services the London Underground’s Bakerloo line as well as the Overground rail. To the northeast is also Brondesbury Park station on the Overground, and Kilburn Park tube station is just to the east on the Bakerloo line. As an alternative to trains, there are five bus routes servicing Queen’s Park but unfortunately no docking stations for renting Barclays bikes.
Finding Queen’s Park Apartments
Because the area does enjoy a peaceful residential feel as well as good schools, demand for Queen’s Park apartments and houses has tightened available supply. To maximize the number of properties you view here, you’ll need to visit several different estate agency offices located in the Queen’s Park area.
