About Swiss Cottage

Swiss Cottage is in the London Borough of Camden in London and is 3.2 miles (5.1 km) north-west of Charing Cross. It is centred on the junction of Avenue Road and Finchley Road and is the location of Swiss Cottage tube station. The district is named after an inn called The Swiss Tavern that was built in 1804 in the style of a Swiss chalet and on the site of a former tollgate keeper's cottage. The inn was later renamed Swiss Cottage. The area is served by Swiss Cottage St. John's Wood and Finchley Road tube stations on the Jubilee line of the London Underground and is a local hub for London Buses.
