About Colindale

Once the site of an RAF base, Colindale, in north-west London, is now an up-and-coming neighbourhood with new buildings replacing empty warehouses and former airfields. The area is popular with first-time buyers and young professionals looking for better value than neighbourhoods closer to town.

A short history

Originally a dale lying between Mill Hill and The Burroughs, during the 19th century developers moved in attracted by the cheap land prices. A hospital was then built and, in 1902, the British Library depositary (this closed in 2013). The Underground arrived 1923 and this encouraged the development of streets of Edwardian-style semi-detached family houses.

Green spaces and going out

There are several parks to enjoy including Colindale Park, which has a children's playground, Montrose Playing fields, Silk Stream Park and Silver Jubilee Park which has a seven-a-side football pitch. Colindale is home to of London's best oriental food markets and the largest Asian food court. The RAF museum is a much-loved local attraction and popular with children, meanwhile Brent Cross Shopping Centre is a 10-minute bus journey. The shops and restaurants of Mill Hill Broadway are about a 12-minute walk from Colindale Underground station.


Colindale Underground Station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line (Zone 4). Journeys to Euston take 20 mins.
