Brondesbury together with Brondesbury Park is an affluent suburb in the north west of London, England. Brondesbury is some 4 miles north west of Charing Cross in the London Boroughs of Brent and Camden. Like many London suburbs it was a rural area until the coming of the railway in the Victorian era. Housing began to be built in earnest in Brondesbury in the 1860s and it soon became seen as a desirable area in which to live, especially for London's Jewish community. Brondesbury is a predominantly residential area.
Giles, Giles & Fripp, the forerunner to the band King Crimson, named their album The Brondesbury Tapes after the area.
