Your local area

Hendon has lots to offer, and London has even more. Just 12 minutes on the tube to Camden, and 20 minutes to London Bridge, we’re in the perfect location to enjoy the best of both worlds – quieter suburbia or hectic central London.

Hendon has green spaces, shops, cafes, pubs, and evidently, really strong transport links. Here are just some of the local places we suggest you check out when you have free time:

The Claddagh – our infamous local pub right on the campus doorstep, stop by to enjoy a beer or take your pick from the ever-expanding food menu. MDXSU also host pub quizzes here on Wednesday evenings.

Hendon Bagel Bakery – just a 5 minute walk away, the bakery serves a wide range of breads and cakes and offers great coffee too!

Mr. Baker – for under £5 you can get a fresh falafel pitta, cooked right in front of you while you wait.

Brent Cross shopping centre – you can catch the 143 or 326 bus from right outside the quad to the Brent Cross mall, where tons of shops and eateries await you.

Marks & Spencer, Co-op and Tesco – we’ve got the best 3 supermarkets all in walking distance, so wherever your loyalty lies, you’ll never go hungry on your lunch break.
