West Hampstead Area Guide

History of West Hampstead

West Hampstead is an area of London with a village feel, tucked between Frognal and Hampstead to the east, Swiss Cottage to the south, and Kilburn to the west. Until the late 19th century, the area was a small village called West End. It took the name of West Hampstead with the arrival of the railways. The area was then transformed from a rural settlement to housing estates.

West Hampstead's proximity to the Metropolitan line at Finchley Road and its own Jubilee line stop (West Hampstead), together with a high concentration of fashionable bars and restaurants, means that the area is a popular destination for a night out for people who live in the northwestern suburbs of London. West End Lane itself is home to a number of cafes, bakeries and small shops, a regular haunt for the local population, which adds to the area a distinct village atmosphere during the day. Both the West Hampstead Thameslink and West Hampstead Overground have stations on West End Lane making the area one of the best served by public transport in London.

Today, West Hampstead attracts many young affluent professionals. The area has excellent transport links, is very close to Hamsptead Heath, has a great choice of bars, restauranst and boutiques and a true village feel to it. Properties range from large houses to apartments in mansions blocks (some of the first ones to be built in London).
