With its cultural hotspots and lively attractions, there’s no surprise that London is one of the most popular places to live in the world. However, the fast pace of life in London can be alienating for people who prefer to sit back and watch the world go by. Away from the hustle and bustle of Central London, an apartment in Hendon will give you a perfect balance between city and country living. 

Located in Barnet, North-West London, Hendon is perhaps best known for being home to the Royal Air Force Museum, as well as its abundance of wonderful green spaces. Looking to start a new chapter in this charming area? Here is everything you can expect from your life in Hendon:

Green spaces

Hendon is a nature lover’s paradise. Wherever you look, there’s a leafy park or stunning garden to get lost in. The chief attraction is Hendon Park, a huge park that is perfect for people with a passion for fitness, or families looking for some outdoor fun. Venture out a bit further, and you can enjoy some peace and quiet at Hendon Reservoir, a tranquil lake surrounded by woodlands and unique walking paths. If you have a dog that needs walking, or love going for morning jogs, you’ll never have to look far!

Shopping opportunities

Hendon might not be at the heart of Central London, but you can still enjoy the shopping opportunities that come with living in the capital city. Hendon Cross Shopping Centre is the go-to option for locals looking for retail therapy, with plenty of high-street stores to rummage through, and a tasty range of restaurants to choose from. If that doesn’t quite satisfy your shopping urges, Central London is just moments away!

You can catch the latest film releases at a multiplex cinema, or enjoy the unique experience of visiting a vintage cinema.

A variety of restaurants 

On those nights when you just don’t have the energy to cook, Hendon has plenty of options for those looking for a nice place to eat out. You’ll never be too far from a lively cafe or restaurant in Hendon.

Whatever flavors you fancy, you’ll never be too far from a lively cafe or restaurant

Royal Air Force Museum
