When Cricklewood station was opened by the Midland Railway in 1868, it served a small rural community on the edge of London. Within thirty years the railway had transformed the village into the urban area it is today, and many of the buildings around the station date from this period. Nowadays, Cricklewood is on the Midland Main Line, with regular services to London St Pancras, Wimbledon, Sutton, Luton and St Albans. The station is also served by a number of London bus routes The main shopping street in Cricklewood is the bustling Cricklewood Broadway, just a few minutes' walk east of the station. There are some striking examples of Victorian architecture on the Broadway, not least the historic Crown Pub, which dates back to 1899. About twenty minutes' walk from the station is Gladstone Park, with gardens, an art gallery and impressive views across the London skyline.
