In the 19th century, Harlesden, then a rural village, began to develop some of its urban appearance with the arrival of the railways. Willesden Junction tube station, Kensal Green station and Harlesden station stations all had an effect on the developing village. Cottages for railway and industrial workers were built, as was grander housing for the local middle class.

Harlesden increasingly lost its rural nature, with factories replacing farms and woodland. From late Victorian times until the 1930s, housing completed its spread across the area, and Harlesden became part of the London conurbation. Mainly after World War I, one of Europe's biggest Industrial park was constructed at nearby Park Royal, and large factories there included McVitie's (later United Biscuits) from 1910, and H. J. Heinz Company from 1919.

The image of Harlesden today began to take shape in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Continued immigration from Ireland and new immigration from the Caribbean, the Indian sub-continent and Africa changed the racial and cultural make up of the area. More recently the area has now become home to Brazilian people and Portuguese people communities. Much of the housing is made up of Victorian terraces which have been attracting young professionals unable to afford similar properties in nearby Kensal Green and Queen's Park, London.

Note: In the year 1999 Harlesden had the highest murder rate in the UK according to the Police League Tables. However, due to the presence of operation TRIDENT operating in the area, murders have decreased drastically. |population_ref = ( ward )
