Edgware Mini Guide
Tell me a Little About Edgware
It was a Saxon settlement way back in time and still to this day is named after the Saxon chief whose tribe used to fish in the lake formed by the two streams that flow through the area today. Ecgi’s Weir eventually became Edgware and the area developed as a commuter area for the centre of London and as a market town for goods aimed at the capital. Today it is a mainly residential area with some reasonable shopping opportunities but is mostly used as a stop off point before heading into central London.
How Easy is it to get to?
As it’s within the Greater London boundaries, it is a stop on the Northern Line of the London Underground. Most people aiming for Edgware take the British Rail train to Marylebone and catch the tube to Edgware Road
. The Northern Line can take you through the centre of London and on to Waterloo
. Local buses are cheap and convenient but can get choked up in the local traffic.
Is There Much to see When I’m There?
Sadly, not much. The historical aspects of the area disappeared long ago after wartime bombing and post war rebuilding to accommodate a growing population. The streets of the area are now mainly houses or flats interspersed with shopping streets. The benefit of staying in Edgware is to have quick and convenient access by tube to the rest of London. Having said that, Barnet Museum, nearby, has an excellent account of the history of the area including old photographs and a 'home front' exhibition.
What About Eating out?
There are a number of good restaurants around the area, many of them with a Jewish theme to reflect the make-up of the population. Others follow the London trait of offering high quality food in comfortable surroundings.
