The countryside 
at your doorstep

As the name suggests, Woodside Park sits
adjacent to a vast green space consisting
of woods, grassland and open pastures.
Amazingly this urban oasis has avoided
development and is now a protected
green belt site occupying the valley
between Mill Hill and Totteridge.

The Westbury sits right on the edge of this open space at the confluence of Folly and Dollis brooks. These streams are flanked by the Dollis Valley Green Walk, a stretch of lush green space that meanders quietly through a series of North London neighbourhoods as it makes its way from Totteridge Village down to the Brent Reservoir.

Other local parks include the well kept Victoria Park off Ballards Lane, which offers tranquil spaces on neatly trimmed lawns to relax, unwind and stretch the legs.

If you are looking to keep active, the flat and well-surfaced paths are ideal for a morning jog. You will also find tennis courts, a bowling green and sports clubs to join. If golf is your thing, you’ll will be spoilt for choice, with 12 golf courses within a 5 mile radius of The Westbury. There are also several fully equipped fitness centres, including Pure Gym, Park View, David Lloyd and Virgin Active.

The local high street at Finchley High Road and Ballards Lane is packed with independent shops, cafes and salons. Here you’ll find restaurants serving Turkish, Indian, Italian, Korean, Vietnamese, Persian, Chinese, Japanese and Mexican cuisine. For a traditional roast head to the beautifully rural Orange Tree Pub on Totteridge Lane.

The area also serves-up plenty of culture, the Arts Depot holds regular exhibitions, concerts and shows as well as theatre classes for all ages. Movie lovers will be able to feed their need for escapism at a choice of cinemas, including The Phoenix in East Finchley, one of the oldest picture houses in the country, The Everyman in High Barnet with its grand Deco facade or the multi-screen complex at Finchley Lido where you can watch the latest blockbusters in high definition sound and vision.

Located yards away from Woodside Park tube station, The Westbury is perfect for professionals who rely on good transport links for an easy commute. Door to door journey time to the City or Westend is just 25 minutes on the Northern Line, or change at Kings Cross (20mins) for National Rail, Eurostar or Cross Rail. By road the A406, A1, M1 and M25 are all just a short drive away.
