The Worst Things in Kentish Town, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Kentish Town.

The Worst Things
  • The junkies and seedy people who hang around Kentish Town station and the chavs who go to Iceland!
  • bit grim sometimes lack of community spirit traffic wardens (and i'm a cyclist!) drunken aussies at sunday afternoon Forum sessions
  • being stalked by foxes late at night
  • The Ingestre Road housing estate, in between Lady Somerset Road and Chetwynd Road. Non stop aggravation from these 'children'. You know the sort hooded tops, loud mouths and bad skin.
  • chainsmoking teenage girls screaming obscenities at kids, litter, graffiti
  • The mess...
  • The drunks the murders the druggies
  • THE WORST FINGS ARE THE POSH PEOPLE SPILLING OUT OF HAMPSTED AND PARLI HILL .. ON I FOR GOT TO MENTION EARLIER ON.. THE LIDO IS THE BOOM, IF UR KIDS BUNKING OFF SCHOOL IN THE SUMMER THEN UR FIND EM IN THE LIDO.
  • Omega Sauna...Damp, smelly, overpriced, ugly and unfriendly "masseuses", loud, young and drunk clientele (probabbly having failed elsewhere) p.s. I only went in the interests of writing for this guide!!
  • By god is it scary walking out of Kentish town tube at night and up towards the Assembly rooms. It's like running the gauntlet passed some ghoulish looking folk!
  • puke & cans of special brew all over the library in the mornings...
  • The muggers and general scarey people.
  • Its general air of failure. Empty shops, winos at the shelter by the tube station etc.
  • A bit like 'real 'life' in places, but still beats tourist-bound Camden.
