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 (10mins), Highgate for Hampstead Heath and Highgate Cemetery(5mins), 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.

I loved staying at Gina's house. She is an amazing woman very loving and caring and a great new friend. I would definitely recommend here and always will choose her when I visit London next time.
Gina is a lovely Russian woman. After a hectic day in London, it was a pleasure to stay in her little but beautiful garden. Also her husband is a nice and welcoming person, not to mention their delicious cooking!
Gina and Clive are great hosts, their house is a short walk from Finchley central underground, and it takes less than 25 minutes to get to central London. Clive also cooks very well and Gina made coffee for me everyday. It actually feels like a home. The bathroom isn't ensuite and could be shared which was a bit of a problem, everything else was good.
Gina is so nice and friendly.The house is always clean.I thought the station near the house is far from the city but it was actually convenient.
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
