Finchley town guide
Finchley, part of the London Borough of Barnet, is situated to the north of the Capital. There is much to do in this bustling suburb, with no shortage of places to eat and to find entertainment.
For the visitor looking for a fascinating day out there is the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon, just a few minutes from the centre of Finchley. Closer to London there is Hamstead Heath, always worth a visit.
A section of the Jewish Museum is located in the Sternberg Centre in Finchley.
For the visitor prepared to venture further, perhaps by hire car, there are many delightful places to visit in the Lee Valley to the east, the Chilterns to the northwest or even the many attractions of London itself not far to the south.
Spike Milligan, author, poet, comedian, and creator of the famous "Goon show", lived in Finchley, North London, from 1955 to 1974. He loved his surroundings: its open spaces, its often quaint architecture, and the brook that ran at the bottom of his garden.
