North Finchley Area Guide

Situated in the London Borough of Barnet, North Finchley is a pretty residential area that links the more suburban Whetstone to the busier Finchley Central. There is a good balance of flats and houses, served by an excellent blend of independent and multinational shops. Culturally, there is the Arts Depot situated on Tally Ho Corner, which has a diverse range of performance arts for all ages. The High Road in N12 has restaurants of all styles to fit all budgets.


The fantastic open spaces of Friary Park can be found on Friary Road in North Finchley. It has formal Edwardian grounds as well as a large playground with café and large open spaces. The highlight is the park’s summer show.

For those that enjoy a local market, Lodge Lane in N12 has a Friday morning market with stalls offering fresh fish, meat and vegetables.
