Kentish Town: London’s Lively Creative Hub

August 9, 2017    |   Panny Antoniou

Situated near Camden Town and Belsize Park, leafy Kentish Town has a long and proud history.

First mentioned in print during the reign of King John, over 800 years ago, Kentish Town is a prosperous, metropolitan part of London. Famous for its thriving music scene, British rock music genre Pub Rock is believed to have originated in a local former jazz pub called the Tally Ho.

Kentish Town has also been at the forefront of the resurgence of real ale pub and the popularity of the craft beer industry. Indeed, many local pubs stock beer from the local Camden Town Brewery located near Kentish Town West Station. Pubs such as the Southampton Arms, and Tapping the Admiral have both won CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) awards, with Tapping the Admiral being crowned North London pub of the year in 2013.

In addition, Kentish Town has lots of quirky and unique bars. These include Ladies and Gentlemen, which is located on the site of a former public toilet, and a speakeasy-style hidden bar called Knowhere Special. There are also many museums, galleries, and theatres located in the area. These include the Zabludowicz Collection, the Beardsmore Gallery, and the Lion and Unicorn Theatre which add to the creative atmosphere of the area.

It is this thriving community with so much to do which makes Kentish Town such a sought after location for people to live and work. Here at Robert Irving Burns we have a number of offices in Kentish Town suited to all manner of companies, from creative media firms to technology start-ups.
