Good underground, Piccadilly line.
Excellent Transport Links
People think it is too far north, but it only takes 15 minutes on tube to King's Cross and 20 minutes to Covent Garden. There is a train to Moorgate as well. It is a safe and friendly place with 24h/7 corner shop. There is a pizza place and other food restaurants, 2 chemists and only 2 min away from Wood Green where you have everything you need; banks, shopping malls, 2 cinemas, majority of shops, you would see in Oxford Street!
Great access to all areas. Piccadilly line, Overground rail, buses, night buses, walking distance from Alexandra Palace. Close to Muswell Hill and Wood Green shopping with bars cinemas etc.
Good transport links, tube & overground, good road links, safe & clean area.
Bounds Green sits in the middle of the triangle between Wood Green, Southgate and Muswell Hill and is very well connected with good road, rail, tube and bus links running 24/7 and shops available for 24/7. There are a variety of take aways, Indian, Chinese, Kebabs, Pizzas and easy access to the boutique shops and restaurants of Muswell Hill, Southgate and the parks and events of Alexandra Palace. This is one place where you will definitely like to explore and will be pleasantly surprised at just how well situated it is.
Friern Barnet is a little known North London suburb, but is extremely well placed between Finchley, Whetstone, Muswell Hill and Southgate. It has great bus routes, such as 43, 221, 134, 382 and also two stations within walking distance, Arnos Grove (Picadilly) and New Southgate overland. With Oyster travel now available at New Southgate, fast services in to Kings Cross are now much more convenient. In terms of car travel, the A406 nearby to circumnavigate London and connect to motorways. Friern Barnet therefore makes a great location for the Londoner who needs to get about a bit.
In terms of on the doorstep entertainment, Frien Barnet lacks a little, boasting only a couple of basic pubs. It does have a couple of very nice restaurants, but sadly no real club or swanky wine bar. However with only a short bus ride to Muswell Hill, and night buses to central London through Camden, Tottenham Court Road and London Bridge, you'd be surprised how much you'll start to enjoy the extra night out, knowing you'll be back without the cost of a taxi.
Friern Barnet has great selection of small shops, to list: grocery, off-license, computer repair, household goods, electrical or plumbing repair, laundrettes and dry cleaners, Post Office, fitness club. Takeaway outlets include Chinese, Indian, kebab and fish and chips. A local Co-op supermarket open until 10pm and a 24 hour Tesco 10 mins walk from the center are very useful.
In conclusion, Friern Barnet is an great location, peaceful, quiet yet not at all cut off from the rest of London or lacking in facilities. It is certainly up and coming and enjoyable area to live in.
I was amazed at how few people know Friern Barnet. I hope more people get to know it as it is very lovely quiet leafy suburb. I can't imagine living anywhere else!
Stable, leafy, quiet area. Commuter belt but also some social housing, so it is an area of mixed income, education. Multicultural, with people getting along together co-operatively. Families, small businesses. People settle for many years. Lots of shops, take-aways, restaurants. Excellent transport links by train, tube, bus, car.
New Southgate is close to many beautiful parks such as Alexander Palace, Broomfield Park and near A406. It has many shopping facilities and the transport links are exceptionally very good to the West End.
