Why move to Kingsbury?

Situated in a leafy slice of zone 4, Kingsbury offers the best of both worlds. Central London is within easy reach, and yet you’ll definitely feel like you’ve escaped to the countryside by taking in the magnificent views of Buckinghamshire from the top of Barn Hill which is under half an hour from Baker Street. Or, if you prefer a different type of escapism, you can lose yourself in shopping at one of many shopping centres nearby. With all the facilities and green space you could need, plus the capital on your doorstep, we think you’ll love it here.

A little bit of history

Kingsbury, meaning ‘the kings Manor’ began life as a pre-Saxon settlement. Historically, its position made it popular with both Norman and Anglo-Saxon invaders. Overtime ancient forest gave way to farmland, and by the 20th Century the area was best known for its airfield. But it was the railway, and Kingsbury’s connection to London which really put Kingsbury on the map - Kingsbury has at one time or another been a station on the Metropolitan, Bakerloo and Jubilee lines.
