Kentish Town & Gospel Oak
Kentish Town is an upcoming area full of interesting shops, eateries, trendy bars and music. Food lovers should check out the organic food shops along Kentish Town Road. Camden’s musical legacy was partly developed in Kentish Town as it was once the place to buy a piano or organ. The legacy lives on with many bars hosting bands regularly. But it’s not all music and organic food shops – some of the streets off the main drag are little treasures, showcasing some of the best terraces in London. It also hosts a selection of independent stores that are unique and give the area a real local flavour.
Whether it’s a quick bite or a leisurely meal with friends, Kentish Town has it all with its fabulous selection of gastro pubs, cafés and delis. Going out in Kentish Town means live music and great pubs. Some of the venues have a long history while others are new, as this area continues to evolve.
Gospel Oak is an up and coming urban area, The area’s name (Gospel Oak) derives from an oak tree, under which parishioners gathered to hear an annual gospel reading when the area was still rural. Today the area is part of an on-going regeneration project.
Some of its attractions include the historic Queen’s Crescent market, the Kentish Town city farm and the outdoor gym in Lismore circus.
