Mill Hill: Something for everyone

Mill Hill: Something for everyoneLocated in the north of London in the borough of Barnet, Mill Hill is nine miles north-west of Charing Cross and is in the postcode district NW7.

Before being absorbed by London in 1965, the suburb was part of the historic county of Middlesex.

Mill Hill is divided into a number of distinct areas, so those looking for property to rent in the London borough of Barnet are sure to find the home that is just right for them.

These areas include the original centre, which is based around Mill Hill Village, Mill Hill Broadway, which is now the main hub of the suburb and Mill Hill East.

Mill Hill Village is sandwiched between two stretches of green belt land, which feature open fields, meadows and woodland, so nature lovers will feel right at home in this area of the suburb.

In the green belt north of the village lies one of the last remaining farms in the Greater London area – Burthonhole Farm.

Mill Hill Broadway is the livelier part of the suburb, boasting a number of busy shops, restaurants and cafes.

As for Mill Hill East, this has benefited from regeneration over recent years, with the creation of a Waitrose supermarket and new housing.

According to upmystreet.com, the average family income of those living in the NW7 postcode area is medium to high and the majority of the residents are educated to a degree level.

Property in the area is made up of a mixture of houses and flats, with the houses being mostly large, detached and with four or more bedrooms.

The website also claims that the interests of people in Mill Hill include fine arts and antiques, theatre and good food and wine.

Transport

Mill Hill Broadway train station, as the name suggests, is located on Station Road in the Broadway area of the suburb.

It is situated in Travelcard Zone 4, is operated by First Capital Connect and features customer help points, ticket machines, 42 car parking spaces and hearing loop facilities.

Mill Hill Broadway is on the Thameslink route and trains run regularly to Luton Airport in one direction and St Pancras International and Wimbledon in the other.

As for Tube stops, Mill Hill East station is located on Bittacy Hill and is served by the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line.

Tube users seeking to get to Mill Hill East need to get on the branch line from Finchley Central station, which takes just two minutes.

Schools

There are a number of primary and secondary schools in the area but the oldest and most famous is Mill Hill School - a co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 13 to 18 that was established in 1807.

In 2010, 96.2 per cent of the GCSEs achieved at Mill Hill School were graded A* - C and 47.9 per cent were graded either A* or A.

At Mill Hill County High School, on Worcester Crescent, 79 per cent of pupils achieved five A* to C grades in their GCSEs last year.

Things to do

Aside from the many restaurants, bars and cafes in Mill Hill, there are many clubs and societies operating in the area to satisfy a wide variety of hobbies.

The local sports club features a fully-equipped gym, three squash courts, sports fields and a sauna and sun bed.

For those more interested in music, Mill Hill Jazz Club hosts regular jazz, blues and soul nights and Mill Hill Music Club, which was founded in 1955 and claims to be "one of the most prestigious music clubs in London", is always on the look-out for new members.

Overall, Mill Hill, with its leafy areas, excellent schools and variety of restaurants, bars, club and societies, is perfect for people of all ages who are looking for property to rent in London and should definitely not be overlooked.
