London Architecture


This community is an area in the London Borough of Brent, northwest London, UK. Its main focal point is the Jubilee Clock which commemorates Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee.

Harlesden has been praised for its vibrant Caribbean culture and unofficially named London’s reggae capital. The population includes people of Afro-Caribbean heritage, as well as Irish Catholic, Brazilian and smaller Portuguese and Colombian communities.

The district has a rich culture of boxing, with two Olympic Gold medallists hailing from the area: Audley Harrison who won gold in the Super-Heavyweight division at Sydney in 2000, and James Degale who won gold in the Middleweight division at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
