THE EDGWARE ROAD AREA

Edgware Road has been a gateway to London for centuries. Its vibrancy is part of London’s personality. To local residents Edgware Road is an important retail centre. To local businesses it is a lively destination for consumers.

One of the oldest roads in Britain, Edgware Road plays a vital part in London’s history. Many different communities have settled and thrived here, beginning with the Hugenots in the 18th century. A strong Jewish community dates back more than 200 years. Today Arabic communities and businesses sit alongside traditional high street chains, creating a cosmopolitan character unlike any other part of London.

Ground floor uses are dominated by shops, banks, restaurants and cafés, with both residential and office accommodation above. By day, Edgware Road is an important local shopping district. By night, its catchment area extends across London, attracting customers to its many restaurants and cafés.

The boundary of the western edge of the Congestion Charging Zone re-affirms the importance of Edgware Road as a key traffic corridor. During peak times more than 3,400 vehicles (including 78 buses) use Edgware Road per hour.

Well served by public transport, Edgware Road benefits from three Underground Stations, the two in the north being Edgware Road (Bakerloo Line) and Edgware Road (Circle, District and Hammersmith and City Lines and Marble Arch (Central line) on Oxford Street in the south. It is also served by 12 bus routes.

Thriving local communities exist either side of Edgware Road, with amenities including schools, places of worship, leisure facilities and picturesque garden squares.
