Kentish Town Area Guide
Less than four miles north of central London, Kentish Town lies sandwiched between Chalk Farm to the west, Holloway to the east, Camden Town to the south and Highgate to the north, with the 800 acres of Hampstead Heath within walking distance. The main roads have a smattering of Georgian houses and terraces, but the streets are mainly full of early and mid-Victorian terrace homes. Kentish Town is now drawing many first-time buyers. They tend to be young professionals or couples commuting to work in the West End or the City who like the area for its quiet streets, the inner-city liveliness of its high street, and its proximity to Hampstead Heath.
