Car Parking

There is no on-site parking though there is 1 disabled parking bay. Parking is reserved for doctors due to the size of our site and planning restrictions. The forecourt with level access to the surgery has a drop-off space and an ambulance bay, both of which must be kept clear.

There is unrestricted parking on Stag Lane and other local roads though there are also some yellow lines. Driving during the school run can be difficult, so best avoided.

If driving onto our site, please be aware it is shared access and there will be children and disabled people around and be vigilant on exiting the site onto Stag Lane.


There is a large covered cycle shelter provided at the front of the site.

Pram Park and Children

There is a covered Buggy Park with locking bar inside the main entrance overlooked by the waiting room. Due to safety considerations, we cannot allow prams or buggies inside the surgery.

If you need help with looking after your children whilst you are seeing the doctor, please ask at reception. Please keep a close eye on your children at all time they are on the premises. Although we carry out regular risk assessments and keep the surgery as safe as possible there are potentially hazardous drugs and equipment stored in cupboards which adventurous children might find a way of gaining access to and children running around can present a hazard to less abled patients.


Disability Access

Our surgery is fully accessible with a level entrance and a lift. If you require any assistance please ask..

There is one Disability Parking Bay on the site.

There is a hearing loop at reception and we have a portable loop for use in consultations.

If you have communication difficulties please ask when booking if you wish to have help during your consultation (or you can bring someone yourself if you prefer).

We use Silent Sounds interpreting services, either for telephone interpreting or with a face to face interpreter (we need prior warning to book this at the time of your appointment)

This is a fascinating local area. Farmland until the 1920s it rapidly developed along with the spread of the Metropolitan Railway westwards.

Sir John Betjeman famously made a film for the BBC in 1973 ‘Metroland’ detailing the whole area including Kingsbury.

There is some eccentric architecture- mock castles and thatched cottages designed by Ernest Trobridge – an interesting walking tour guide here and biography of the architect.

A factory on Stag Lane aerodrome produced the famous Tiger Moth biplane and later aero engines for de Havilland. Amy Johnson learn to fly here. Some brief notes here and an article on de Havilland Technical School with pictures of the aerodrome here

The Roe Green Conservation area opposite the surgery has a very active Residents Association

The Barn Hill Conservation Group look after a beautiful walled garden in Kingsbury (John Logie Baird received the first TV signals from Berlin in the coach house in 1928).

St Andrews Church in Church Lane was moved stone by stone from the West End in the early 1930s. Hidden behind it is the 11th or 12th century Old St Andrews Church, Brent’s only Grade 1 listed building.

The area is very green and a large part is taken up by Fryent Country Park– excellent for walks and retaining medieval hedgerows, hay meadows and farm ponds.

The Brent Reservoir (Welsh Harp), a Site of Special Scientific Interest is home to several sailing clubs, also canoeing, shooting, birdwatching and walking.

Here are some historical photographs of Kingsbury
