What locals say about Finchley

  1. Finchley,a desirable and pleasant for all,as its vibrant diversity,colour and atmosphere.

  2. I love Finchley Road because there is so much to do in my area and the amount of shops in my area are completely unbelievable. first of all, we have one of the best schools called UCR and the school is a stem school that has from year 7 to university which is amazing. the shops are ranged from KFC, Mcdonalds, Subway and chicken cottage to Robert Dyas, Waitrose, HSBC. i also have the O2 centre near me which has Sainsbury and Waterstones and VUE which means that i don't need to travel far to the shops to get something. That is why area is amazing
