Houses, Flats & Apartments to Rent in Harlesden, London
Known as the ‘reggae town’ of London, Harlesden is still home to the only original reggae record shop in the capital. The Caribbean community of Harlesden have been joined by the likes of Irish, Somali, Brazilian and Portuguese communities as well as British families. This makes NW10 a vibrant melting pot of cultures, diversity and inclusion. Harlesden town centres around the Jubilee Clock, commemorating Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee, and is called home by almost 18,000 people. The area gets plenty of visits from those ready to enjoy the Caribbean cuisine in the local restaurants. No matter where you’re from, Harlesden is a good place to rent and will soon be one of the capital’s most well-connected neighbourhoods.
Flats & Apartments for Rent in Harlesden
You won’t find high-rise blocks of flats in Harlesden, as the council removed them back in the 1960s. However, there are some low and medium-rise apartment buildings in the area. As a result, Harlesden’s rented flats are primarily conversions of attractive red-bricked Victorian terraces. You’ll find the best value for money in these conversions, so they’re worth holding out for.
