Why live in Kentish Town?
To get one thing straight, Kentish Town has nothing whatsoever to do with the county of Kent. It is thought that the name derives from “Ken-ditch” meaning the “bed of a waterway.”
Lying just to the north of Camden Town, Kentish Town is in many ways the best of all worlds, and it is little surprise that for estate agents, Kentish Town has some of the hottest property on the market.
If you want the unique atmosphere and experience of Camden Town without paying higher prices, then this really is the place for you.
Having said that, estate agents in Kentish Town regard the borough as more than just an “overspill” area for Camden. It has plenty in its favour without having to rely on its more famous big brother, with a wide variety of pubs, restaurants, live music venues and boutique hangouts. And all in an atmosphere that is just a little calmer than its neighbour.
One thing is for certain, if you need to get somewhere, you can get there from Kentish Town! The borough boasts a mainline railway station with links to St. Albans, Brighton, Luton Airport and Gatwick Airport, plus underground, overground and bus routes that can take you anywhere across the length and breadth of London
