Hotel Vicinity:Nearest: Railway Station: Kilburn High Road 158 yards (144 metres), Tube Station: Kilburn Park 0.15 miles (0.2 km), Motorway: M1 Junction 1 3 miles (4.8 km). The Sanctum Apartments sits on the border between Kilburn and Maida Vale. This part of Kilburn is often referred to as West Hampstead (there is actually a tube station with that name) as it sits to the west of Hampstead itself which is a very chic, popular and exclusive area. Being at the south end of Kilburn this area is also sometimes called Maida Vale, especially in the marketing by commercial properties in the area as Maida Vale also is far more upmarket than Kilburn. However there's nothing wrong with Kilburn, indeed transport links here are great with no less than 10 stations within 1 mile of the Sanctum Apartments. Kilburn also has a long busy and popular High Street which stretches for a mile from the apartments northwards. The apartments are actually on the corner of Greville Road and Kilburn High Road which is part of the A5, a long major road linking Marble Arch (15 minutes drive) in central London with Bangor in north Wales. Although the area is slightly out from central London and the main tourist areas there's still plenty to see and do in the local vicinity. Abbey Road Studios where the Beatles made their hits is just over half a mile . The O2 centre which is an entertainment complex is less than a mile on the Finchley Road which itself is a long busy High Street shopping area. Also within a mile is Lords Cricket Ground and the Freud Museum.
