When you are planning your relocation to London the first thing you’ll realize is that each neighborhood has its own character. Finding the right area and the right rental in the city can be the most exhausting and challenging aspect of your international relocation. You need to have a good idea of the transport in and out of your suburb, especially if you work in the heart of the city. You’ll also want to know where to find the shops, doctors, banks and other amenities that will make your relocation easy and fun.

Kentish Town is found in the Camden council borough and the area covers the NW5 postcode. Northwest of London, Kentish Town is a mix of utterly urban and simply suburban and is the choice of more and more Americans.
Kentish Town is well appointed on the tube line and has two tube stations: Tufnell Park and Kentish Town. Finding a convenient commute may seem like an oxymoron when you are moving to London but unless you live right in eth city, any suburb that you choose will have access to the public transport network.
Kentish Town is a diverse suburb and is home to many young families as well as people who want to stay close to the eclectic mix and vibe of nearby Camden Town. Recently, there have been a number of professionals from the city moving into Kentish Town and revamping some of the older buildings.
The main shopping area in Kentish Town has a good mix of grocery stores, banks, and other amenities as well as a number of casual eateries and chain restaurants. If you’re looking for something different or unusual then head over to Camden Town or Islington for a dose of street culture and cuisine.
