The excellent transport connections to central London and beyond provide a big draw to London’s growing workforce.

Locals enjoy living in Hendon because there are several pleasant green spaces which are perfect for walking one’s dog and many family-friendly parks too.

There are several established, welcoming communities including a large Jewish population with an overall age demographic varying from young professionals and young families to people ages 45+ with established roots in the area.

Hendon is the perfect place if you wish to circumvent the higher rental prices that are found in prime London zones. You can get good-quality accommodation with reasonable duration commuter journeys so your still near to Central London’s many attractions. Another benefit to not being in the more central parts of London is that car ownership is understandably more common.

The Thameslink service also has a stop in West Hendon and links to the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras and the Crossrail connection at Farringdon making this a popular choice with City workers.
The reliable transport links means working parents can plan their day from the school run to the train ride home fairly easily. There are a couple of Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ schools in Hendon and several others that have achieved good ‘Good’. There are many more independent schools in and around the area too.
