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.

We had a great stay. The hosts Gina and Clive are very warm and supportive and are forthcoming in guiding tourists on activities to do, transportation, shopping related issues etc. Gina was also particularly helpful in letting me borrow her umbrella which was very helpful in the wet London weather. The room however is quite small and four people, as they advertise, cant be accommodated in the room
Sono stati molto gentili , ottimi cuochi, tutto pulito , ottima lochescion , zona tranquilla e sicura , stazione metropolitana comoda
Its excellent and wonderful and beautiful and very clean house, and near the undergroun st 5 min walk
Well. Very fine.
Gina and Clive were great hosts.
The stay was perfect and very nice. The room was well and clean.
So, I recommend it a lot.
Gina and Clive were very warm and welcoming! The bedroom was very comfortable, and having a private bathroom is definitely a plus. The house is conveniently located near an underground station, and it only takes 30 minutes to get to the center of London. The neighborhood is nice and quiet.
I would happily recommend this home to anyone, and would love to come back.
Very welcoming hosts, friendly seriously invest in their role and also will be professional when it need to be.
Gina was the warmest person, from day one; she was waiting for us with coffee and cake, and the room was perfect. Me and my little brother felt comfortable and welcomed.
I will certainly contact her back, nothing but positives for Gina and her husband Clive.
Thank you both!
Gina and Clive were great hosts! So welcoming, kind, and helpful! It was really fun to get to know them and another couple from Denmark that were staying with them as well! It was a marvelous time! Their home is well suited for a homestay!!
I would go back anytime.
Gina and Clive are the most wonderful, positive, amazing people ! we felt there like at home.We spend very nice time together.Clive cooked for us delicious dinner and thank you for that again! :) This was my first Homestay and I didn't know it can be so good. The room was cozy , clean and we had own bathroom everything was perfect. Location of home was good easy to get into city, close to the transport ( underground and buses). I can definitely recommend this place ! Thank you Gina and Clive ! I hope see you soon !
