Kilburn is a London suburb in the north west of the city. Very busy with many different immigrant ethnic groups coexisting, it has a vibe and a flavour that is uniquely it's own. Lots of shops, restaurants & bars. Busy.

It is still however a wonderful... More

Kilburn has some good, cheap bars and a few decent shops but many of the ones I used to go to Kilburn especially for have now closed down to be replaced by Poundland and similar
