The flat is 50 yards from Hendon Railway station. This has trains into St Pancras every 15 minutes with a journey time of just 17 minutes. You can time your journey down to the minute - the train arrivals and departure boards are available on your iPhone and on the web in the flat. So waiting on a draughty train station is a thing of the past.The train service also runs directly to Wimbledon Station (journey time one hour) for tennis; Gatwick Airport (70 minutes) and Luton Airport (23 minutes). The London Underground Station is also only a 10-12 minute walk away or short bus ride. There is also an excellent bus service (83 and 183) which is just 60 yards from the house and both buses go to Golders Green where you can catch the National Express coach to Stansted Airport. Night buses to and from Trafalgar Square run past the front door of the house.
In addition we provide returnable Oyster cards for you to get around London. All you need to do is top up the cost of your travel at the nearest station and remember to leave the cards behind for the next guests
The property is twelve minutes walk from the Brent Cross Shopping Centre with late night opening and major stores (e.g. The Apple Store, M&S, Fenwicks, John Lewis, Waitrose, Boots, along with 120 other stores). There is also a large Sainsbury’s supermarket about 10-15 minutes walk away or short bus journey. At Hendon Central there are also small local Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets which stay open each night to 11.00pm as well as a Post Office.
Sightseeing and Eating Out:
The train service with underground connections including West Hampstead, St Pancras, Farringdon, City Thameslink and Blackfriars means you can easily get to any part of London you want to. You are just minutes away from all the key venues. There is a good selection of restaurants in West Hampstead but London has the most ethnically diverse food in the world and food markets on Sundays e.g. in Camden are great for trying out something a little different after a stroll along the canal from Regent’s Park.
Want to do business in London? We are in a great location for getting to all the key London business 'hotspots' : 'Silicon Roundabout', the City, the West End - all the places where business and British enterprise thrives.

Alistair and Diana are extremely friendly, approachable and are genuinely thoughtful and caring people. Their property is meticulously presented with great attention to detail and they have gone to great lengths to provide home comforts upon arrival. The apartment is extremely well equipped and has a warm homely feel.
We have booked for the first time at Wimdu and are very pleased that it worked out well. We will certainly make it more often. It's definitely more interesting than staying at the hotel.
Wir haben zum erstenmal bei Wimdu gebucht und freuen uns sehr, dass es so gut geklappt hat. Wir werden es sicherlich öfter machen. Es ist auf jeden Fall interessanter als im Hotel wohnen.
