Brent"Gentle Brent, I used to know you,
Wandering Wembley-wards at will.
Now what change your waters show,
In the meadow lands you fill."
(John Betjeman, 1954)

Brent, named after the River Brent to which the poem refers, is famous for being home to the venue of legends, 'the place English football comes home to' - Wembley Stadium (guided tours operated), as well as the Arena and Conference Centre. Brent is a multi-cultural heartland and offers fascinating glimpses into London’s many faiths. The Hindu Temple in Neasden, The Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, was carved in India but assembled in North London and rises spectacularly out of its urban surroundings.

For shoppers, the famous Swedish furniture store IKEA is located within the borough, as is Wembley Market which boasts a good selection of clothes, jewellery, food and bric-a-brac. Escape the city buzz in leafy Gladstone Park or enjoy a walk along the tow path of the Grand Union Canal.
