When we look for somewhere to live we don’t always want to find just one place that has what we want but somewhere with many options and if this is the case then you should be looking to make Brent your new home.
Brent is a London Borough in the north west of London and a part of Outer London. It is bordered by Barnet to the north east, Harrow in the north-west, Camden in the east and in the south lies Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing, and Kensington & Chelsea. The eastern border is the A5 road. Its major area is Wembley, but also includes North Wembley, Wembley Park, Alperton, Brent Park, Brondesbury, Brondesbury Park, Wilesden, Dollis Hill, Cricklewood, Sudbury, Church End, Kenton, Kilburn, Neasden, Preston, Park Royal, Queen’s Park, Harlesden, Kingsbury, Tokyngton, Queensbury, Stonebridge and Kensal Green.
Its postcode districts are in the HA and NW groups and its total population is 311,200. The borough was formed with the merger of the Borough of Wembley, the Borough of Willesden and Middlesex. The name of the region comes from the River Brent, which is a tributary of the Thames.
The census of 1801 listed 2,022 people living in what is now Brent. This would increase quickly as the area developed and industry was created, reaching 5,416 people in 1841 and 67,674 in 1891. The number would continue to rise to 310,457, but decreased from the 1960s onwards but it has begun to rise again recently. The Diageo brewery had its head offices here for most of its existence. The area is keen of recycling and has programmes to ensure that at least 25% of all waste is recycled. There are many tube and train stations connecting the borough together, as well as with the rest of London.
Some of the key landmarks of the region include The Neasden Temple, which was Britain’s first authentic Hindu temple and the largest of its kind outside of India. The Central Mosque Wembley serves as the place of worship for the UK’s fifth largest Muslim community. The Brent Town Hall was formally a Grade II listed building and has been described as the “best modern town hall around London.” Both Wembley Arena and Wembley Stadium are here and host a large range of events and shows, with some of the biggest musicians and comedians touring here and many top sporting fixtures taking place at each receptively. There are many parks and open spaces in Brent with the most significant being Roe Green Park, Queen’s Park, Roundwood Park and Gladstone. The Borough is home to 3 non-league football clubs: Wembley F.C, Tokyngton Manor F. and South Kilburn F.
