The South East England region
London is one of the largest and most dynamic cities in the world, with a strong international character and a diverse population of more than seven million people. A thriving cultural, financial, and political center, London is a vast city encompassing a variety of historic, commercial and residential areas, many of which remain distinct neighborhoods with a strong community feel.
Traditional black cabs, the Tower of London, colorful street markets, the River Thames, chic Covent Garden, Tate Modern, Canary Wharf and the Docklands, and the expansive Hyde Park exemplify some of the contrasts that make London one of Europe’s most exciting and vibrant destinations.
Finchley has an 'arty vibe' and the Arts Depot which is only a few minutes walking distance, is a hub of comedy, music, drama and art in the area. Notable people who have lived here include : Charles Dickens lived here when he wrote Martin Chuzzlewit (1843) after a trip to the United States, Comedians such as Spike Milligan (Goons) and Eric Morecambe (Morecambe and Wise Show) also lived here, as did Harry Beck (the designer of our famous London Underground Map).
Actors, comedians, artists, musicians, writers and journalists still reside in Finchley. Down in East Finchley The Phoenix Cinema is an 1930's Art Deco building is one of the oldest cinemas in the UK and was voted as the best single screen cinema in London.There are also plenty of activities for the kids at the Finchley Leisure Centre including Bowling, Swimming and Cinema.
Arriving back at the little station of Woodside Park from a trip into the centre, one has a feeling of calm and serenity. Yet within a few minutes from our house we still have a choice of restaurants ranging from Japanese, Italian, Thai, Turkish, Chinese, Persian, Indian, Azerbaijani, Greek and not forgetting a Fish and Chip Shop. Not too far away there is an attractive country pub that serves a good old traditional Sunday Roast and there are several more pubs with to choose from. Cafes and Takeaways range from the big chains (Starbucks and Coffee Republic, McDonalds and Subway) to the more independent local variety. We have bookshops, clothes shops, an old fashioned sweet shop, bakeries, chemists, banks with ATM machines, a quirky gift shop and Spas for a bit of pampering.
A few meters from our house an outdoor market is held every Friday in the car park.
We also love the fact that The Northern Line (Woodside Park is on this line), takes us directly to many of the interesting places in the centre, without having to change trains and as an extra bonus its normally easy to get a seat at Woodside Park.
The Northern Line goes directly to Camden Town for the market (22mins), Highgate for Hampstead Heath and Highgate Cemetery(12mins), Tottenham Court Road (29mins) and Leicester Square (31mins) for Theatre Land and Oxford Street Shopping, Charring Cross (33mins) for The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace, Embankment (43mins) for The South Bank and Royal Festival Hall and London Eye.

"A very comfortable place,well appointed facilities,excellent care from owners"
A great apartment, clean and, tidy as well as comfortable. A very good kitchen, dining room with TV and HIFI, and sofa bed. Lodge lane is quiet but near the High road, with good shops,supermarkets and restaurants within easy reach. To get to central London, the Northern line underground is only a 5 minute walk, and a 20 minute ride. The owners Seb and Judy were helpful, friendly and informative, without being intrusive. A great place to stay to visit London.

"Everything you need for a stay in London. Much nicer than a family room in a hotel!"
Judy and Seb couldn't be more helpful and friendly. We had everything we needed for a four day stay, including shopping waiting for us on our arrival at 7am from Heathrow! 10 minute walk to tube line and plenty of local shops and restaurants just around the corner. Nice and quiet, comfy beds, well set-up kitchen, nice bathroom and two loos! ... We had a 10 year old and a 15 year old and if you don't mind a few stairs I would highly recommend this as a much better alternative to staying in a hotel! Will be passing on to friends and family.

Handy to groceries,restaurants, buses and tube station,this lovely terrace house had all that we needed . Warmly welcomed and assisted with anything required including local knowledge by the hosts Judy and Seb the perfect start to a 2 week stay in London with an easy commute to the city via bus or tube or just enjoy the immediate surroundings . The appartment was recently refurbished and was presented beautifully. Thanks for a great stay we would love to come back again.

Voici une superbe maison, trés agréable, avec tout ce dont on a besoin, (y compris lave-vaisselle, machine à laver). Les chambres sont superbes et la literie fantastique. Le quartier est très bien, avec pleins de commerces (vente à emporter, restaurants, etc...) les propriétaires sont aux petits soins pour vous et font tout pour faciliter votre séjour, (leur manuel est très utile). La maison est à 5 mns du métro, et c'est très facile pour se rendre en plein coeur de Londres. Je recommande cette maison à tout le monde. Nous y reviendrons avec joie. Patrice.
