Finchley Area Guide

Situated in the London Borough of Barnet, Finchley Central is the liveliest part of Finchley. It’s tree lined roads make the area a magnet for families and professionals alike. It’s great transport links make for an easy journey into Central London and beyond.  There are a larger proportion of houses than flats in N3, ranging from starter homes to Victorian mansions.   

Ballards Lane stretches from Finchley Central station to Tally Ho corner and has a diverse range of shops and restaurants. 

Those with an active lifestyle will be well catered for in N3. There is horse riding to be found at the London Equestrian Centre which is only moments away in Lullington Garth. Anyone who prefers an afternoon with their 7 Iron will enjoy the pretty surroundings of Finchley Golf  Club. If you are brave enough, and the weather permits, there is even an outdoor swimming pool during the summer months at Finchley Lido Leisure Centre.
