Colindale and West Hendon Area Guide
What’s it all about:
Colindale is a suburban area in the London Borough of Barnet that is due to transform into an exuberant and trendy London location over the next five years that will be coveted by Londoners from all different walks of life.
Colindale is a favourable location for young professionals because the area boasts affordable housing and is a short 30-minute commute to Bank.
A growing number of corporate professionals in London are looking at rental properties in NW9, as after decades in the doldrums Colindale is finally making use of its biggest asset: space. Disused airfields, defunct training centres and closed factories are all being re purposed and revamped.
Culture & Development:
One of Colindale’s valued assets is its proximity to Brent Cross Shopping Centre; here you can find retail giants including ALLSAINTS, Banana Republic, John Lewis and Fenwick as well as an abundance of great bars, cafés and restaurants where you can refuel after a long day of retail therapy. Brent Cross is a short 7-minute Tube journey from Colindale on the Northern line, so there is no excuse not to get on those shopping shoes and shop ‘til you drop.
The parks in this area of North West London make it a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city; Silk Stream Park is an asset to the area as it is so peaceful and picturesque. The Silk Stream, a crucial element of the Blue-Ribbon Network, flows through the park along with luscious greenery, blossoming shrubs and trees.
