About Mill Hill East

Lying at the eastern end of one of London's oldest villages and overlooking wide open fields protected by the Green Belt, Mill Hill East offers young professionals and families the best of both worlds: an easy commute to central London and a semi-rural environment.

A short history

Mill Hill East was largely made up of farmland until the mid 18th century and didn't fully develop until Mill Hill station (later renamed Mill Hill East) was opened on the Great Northern Railway's suburban line to Edgware. A pub and a few workmen's cottages grew up around the station but as the service to central London was slow and inconsistent, the area didn't find favour with commuters. In 1909, the Middlesex regiment moved into Inglis barracks, built on what had been Bittacy Farm. A council estate was then established at the foot of Bittacy Hill in the mid 1920s and development continued. The 83-acres site of the barracks is being developed into 2,200 new homes, named Millbrook Park.

Green spaces and going out

From riding at the London Equestrian Centre to walks across Totteridge common or a round of golf at one of the four clubs surrounding Mill Hill, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the rural setting. Residents of Mill Hill East have a Waitrose (reputedly one of the largest in London) and a Virgin Active, as well as a selection of family-owned greengrocers, an organic butcher and restaurants around the station and on Bittacy Hill. There are a number of well-known country pubs in Mill Hill village and nearby Totteridge, for everything else, it's an easy journey to Finchley.


Mill Hill East Underground station is the first station on a spur of the Northern Line (Zone 4). Journeys to central London take 30 minutes.

Did you know?

The Inglis Barracks were named after Lieutenant-Colonel William Inglis of the 57th infantry regiment. He coined the phrase "die hard" which was his last order to the troops—the regiment were afterwards nicknamed the "diehards".
