Location Information

Hillspring Lodge is a short walk from Willesden Green underground station (Zone II) so central London is just minutes away by tube.

Hillspring Lodge is based in the heart of Willesden Green in the Royal Borough of Brent. Originally known as Wellesdune which means the “hill of the spring”, true to name, Willesden is one big hill.

1. Wembley Stadium – Whether you love football or you hate it, there’s no denying that Wembley Stadium is an amazing venue to visit. With a 105,000 person capacity, this stadium plays host to many events year round such as sports, music and conferences. Tours of the stadium are available, looking at the history of the venue and – for you football fans – an opportunity for you to see a replica FA cup and the changing rooms of the Football Stars!
2. The Tricycle Theatre – You could walk right past and not realise it’s there but you will missing out. This small seat venue recently voted London’s most beautiful theatre, houses both theatrical productions and film, showing interesting art-house films as well as more main-stream films. It also boasts an art gallery, a bar and a café.
3. Brent Museum, Willesden Library Centre – Want to know more about the social history of this part of London? Then visit the Brent Museum, based in Willesden Library Centre.
4. Lexi Cinema – This is another buildingthat you could easily walk past but is full of boundless character! The Lexi Cinema is a social enterprise to encourage people to improve the quality of their life through the love of film and theatre.
5. Get spiritual at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, also known as Neasden Temple – a truly great building with wonderful and ornate features. It was made with over 5,000 tonnes of marble and is the largest Hindu temple outside India and is free to visit.
6. Ace Café London – This biker’s haven is round the corner from Stonebridge Park station and Wembley. We’ve been there plenty of times and each times, and you never fail to see gorgeous bikes and some interesting characters. The café hosts biker related and many other cool events, e.g. they recently hosted the 2012 Streetfighter and Stunt Festival. And the food? Delicious diner style.
7. Buy inexpensive furniture at IKEA Wembley – It’s like some sort of adult playground. You start at the restaurant where you stock up on energy with Swedish meatballs, Daim cake (nom! This is a must-try sort of cake!) and a fizzy Apfel (apple) drink. Then you’re ready to begin. Armed with a small pencil, an IKEA ruler, you make your way through a maze of affordable furniture, interactive light displays and accessories.
8. Get fit at Bridge Park Community Leisure Centre – Bridge Park is a great venue with a number of fitness classes like Zumba, Boxercise, Yoga and has a gym, Sauna and full sized indoor basketball court! The staff are a nice bunch and the venue can also be booked for social events like Dominoes (Every Wednesday at 11:00) or other get-togethers!
