Living in Kentish Town

Kentish Town is situated in the northwest of London North of Camden Town, South of Tufnell Park and East of Chalk Farm and Belsize Park.  Kentish Town has undergone a major regeneration since the turn of the 20th Century, which has resulted in a huge improvement in the area and has ridden the coattails of the London property boom. People who are looking to buy or rent property in London find that they do get more for their money in Kentish Town rather than neighbouring Camden and Dartmouth Park. There is an eclectic mix of properties to choose from – everything from converted Georgian and Victorian townhouses to new build developments and renovated ex-council owned houses.
