Golders Green Area Guide
Located between Highgate, Hampstead, Swiss Cottage and Cricklewood, Golders Green is centred on the junction of Finchley Road and Golders Green Road. This 19th century suburban development grew substantially in the 20th century in response to the opening of an underground station.
Golders Green is one of the most desirable parts of London to live, especially for families looking to settle down. Golders Green has many different types of property available both to rent and buy, a tranquil ambience, fantastic schools and excellent transport connections. What’s more, when you move here you’ll quickly find that there’s a wealth of cultural and natural attractions on your doorstep.
Home to a thriving Jewish community as well as a large number of South East Asian and Japanese families, Golders Green is the kosher hub of the capital and benefits from a diverse selection of shops and a new crop of Kosher restaurants around the vibrant Golders Green High Street. A cluster of the capital’s top state, independent and Jewish schools make this area an attractive prospect for buyers looking for comfortable suburban living with excellent transport links to centre of town.
Golders Green has a busy town centre around the Underground station that stretches out along Golders Green Road, with more shops in the Temple Fortune area in Finchley Road and along Falloden Way.
There’s a large Sainsbury’s in Golders Green, and busy Starbucks, Caffè Nero and Costa Coffee branches. Traditional local Jewish bakeries include Carmelli, famous for its bagels. Golders Green has a growing Korean community and, after New Malden, this is one of the best places in London to eat Korean food.
Golders Hill Park is the manicured part of Hampstead Heath, looked after by the City of London Corporation. It has a walled garden with flower displays in summer, a café, bandstand, tennis courts, a croquet lawn, a small zoo and butterfly house. Jake and Dinos Chapman’s steel dinosaur sculptures, titled The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, arrived in 2014.
