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 station of Finchley Central 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 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.
We also love the fact that The Northern Line (Finchley Central 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 Finchley Central.
The Northern Line goes directly to Camden Town for the market (15mins), Highgate for Hampstead Heath and Highgate Cemetery(10mins), Tottenham Court Road (20mins) and Leicester Square (25mins) for Theatre Land and Oxford Street Shopping, Charring Cross (30mins) for The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace, Embankment (40mins) for The South Bank and Royal Festival Hall and London Eye.
