Hendon was once home to various motoring and aviation companies, however today it is best known for the RAF Museum and the Hendon Police College. It’s also home to a large Jewish population, thanks to which the Jewish bakeries and eateries liven up an otherwise fairly non-descript neighbourhood of North West London. There are a few pubs dotted around but little in the way of shops, with Brent Cross being the nearest retail conglomerate, and Hendon’s residential streets are mostly filled with detached houses with gardens inhabited by families. It has good transport links to central London thanks to the tube, national rail and Thameslink.
