About East Finchley

An urban village with leafy, tree-shaded pavements, long-standing family-owned shops and a direct Underground service to the City, East Finchley is popular across the board from first-time buyers to professionals and families. It's also just one stop on the Tube from Highgate Village.

A short history

Once part of the Bishop of London's hunting ground, the oldest part of the village dates back to the 17th century. The development of the Great Northern Railway in 1868 led to the development of some streets but it wasn't until 1914 that a thriving commercial centre emerged on East Finchley High Road where it remains today.

Green spaces and going out

Opposite East Finchley Tube station lies Cherry Tree Wood, a 10-acre area of grassland and woodland which has playgrounds and tennis courts. Every June, it also hosts the East Finchley Festival. The independent Phoenix Cinema shows art house movies and is the oldest purpose-built cinema in the UK. It was recently saved by locals from being taken over by a chain.


Each Finchley Underground station (Zone 3) is on the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line. Journeys to central London take 20 minutes.
