Welcome to Queen’s Park

Located in the north west of London, the area of Queen’s Park borders the boroughs of Brent and the city of Westminster, and lies to the east of Kensal Green. Kensal Green, or Kensal Rise as it is also known, can be found in the borough of Brent and is bordered by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the city of Westminster. The names Kensal Rise and Kensal Green tend to be used interchangeably, although locals of the area differentiate the two by proximity to the local train and Tube stations.

The most renowned feature of the area has to be the park itself; Queen’s Park. Originally developed in 1879 to accommodate the annual Royal Agricultural Society show, the event was later moved to Twyford after major losses were incurred, and the remaining 30 acres of land became the Queen’s Park that we know and love today. Nowadays, Queen’s Park offers various sporting and leisure facilities including six all-weather tennis courts, a pitch and putt course, a ptanque pitch, and children’s facilities such as a petting zoo, playground, paddling pool, and a café for the mums and dads!

For a rather different claim to fame, Kensal Green is renowned for being home to one of the oldest English cemeteries still in operation. Kensal Green Cemetery boasts 77 acres of beautiful green grounds that presently offer a habitat to 33 species of birds and wildlife, following its consecration in 1833. Covering two conservation areas, Kensal Green Cemetery adjoins the pretty area surrounding the Grand Union Canal and presents an impressive range of memorials that dominate the landscape. A rich history can be told from the vast selection of monuments, from the grand mausoleums of rich and famous to the more humble and discrete smaller graves, and, with three chapels in the grounds, multiple faiths are also catered for.

Queen’s Park and Kensal Rise have attracted a number of famous residents, including James Bond’s Daniel Craig, Sienna Miller, Thandie Newton, Vogue’s Alexandra Shulman and Zadie Smith.


Property types in Queens Park, Kensal Rise and Kensal Green

While many areas of London were substantially redeveloped between the 1950s and 1970s, Queens Park, Kensal Rise and Kensal Green were largely overlooked, meaning that many Edwardian and Victorian properties remain intact.

Although housing a plethora of period buildings, this up-and-coming area has also seen substantial regeneration in the past few years making it increasingly popular with young professionals and families with young children.
