Finchley is an important area of north London.

Finchley is on high ground, 11 km (6.8 mi) north of Charing Cross. It formed an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex, becoming a municipal borough in 1933, and has been part of Greater London since 1965.

It is predominantly a residential suburb, with three town centres: North Finchley, East Finchley and Finchley Church End (Finchley Central).

Finchley probably means "Finch’s clearing" or "finches’ clearing" in late Anglo-Saxon; the name was first recorded in the early 13th century. It is not recorded in Domesday Book, but by the 11th century its lands were held by the Bishop of London. In the early medieval period the area was sparsely populated woodland, whose inhabitants supplied pigs and fuel to London.

Extensive cultivation began about the time of the Norman Conquest. By the 15th and 16th centuries the woods on the eastern side of the parish had been cleared to form Finchley Common. The medieval Great North Road, which ran through the common, was notorious for highwaymen until the early 19th century.

The Edgware, Highgate and London Railway (later the Great Northern Railway) reached Finchley in 1867. It ran from Finsbury Park via Finchley to Edgware. The branch from Finchley to High Barnet opened in 1872. In 1905 tram services were established in Finchley, and extended shortly afterwards to Barnet. They were eventually replaced by trolleybuses.

There are four main areas of Finchley:

Church End, often known as [Finchley Central">Finchley Central] (particularly since the station was renamed), the area north and west of the North Circular Road, centred on Ballards Lane and Finchley Central tube station, and in postal area N3;

[East Finchley">East Finchley], roughly between Highgate and the North Circular Road, and in postal area N2;

[North Finchley">North Finchley], surrounding Tally-Ho corner, stretching west to the Northern line, in postcode district N12.

The residential areas of [West Finchley">West Finchley], in postcode district N3, and [Woodside Park">Woodside Park], in postcode district N12, centre on their respective tube stations to the west of the area. Between East Finchley and Finchley Central is [Long Lane, N3">Long Lane], which runs parallel to the tube line and is dotted with small shopping parades.
