What locals say about N12

  1. Access to three tubes on the northern line within walking distance, a massively well connected bus station both for north and south commuting, multicultural environment meaning plenty of shisha, restaurants and cafes, safely policed streets and accessible shops: River Island, Waitrose, Sainsburys, access to A406 within 1 mile allowing driving out of London with ease and from home to Islington by bus or car in 15 minutes. It doesn't get better than that. North Finchley ROCKS!
