Colindale takes pride in its fascinating history of aviation. The North London district also combines great access to London with a refreshing suburban environment. Largely populated by pleasant 1930s semi’s and many great outdoors spaces nearby, it’s a brilliant compromise between the city and more rural areas. With many travellers taking advantage of this, SITU has ensured there are several serviced apartments available to book.
Colindale enjoys a proud history of aeronautics, even after only getting its first buildings in the twentieth century. Only Colindale Lodge, a farm and a few cottages existed there until it’s Edwardian period of development. The early 1900s saw Colindale’s significance grow. The Hendon Aerodrome accompanied by the First World War heightened the area’s industrial importance. The underground station’s opening boosted Colindale’s suburban development even further, constructing the area into what it is today. Explore for yourself what the area has become with the help of one of our Colindale city apartments.
Colindale combines the convenience and transport links of its proximity to the centre of London with picturesque suburban setting.

Most famously, Colindale was the site of the Hendon Aerodrome. The site was an important aviation centre for around 60 years, right from the very early days of flight. Part of the old airfield is now the site of the RAF Museum, a popular tourist attraction. Including five buildings and six hangars displaying aviation history and the Royal Airforce, this museum is a must-see historical exhibition. A day out to the museum should be followed by visiting one of the many lovely, quiet cafes, restaurants and pubs scattered all over the area. Then why not finish your day with a relaxed stay in one of our own Colindale aparthotels.
Visitors will also find a selection of beautiful natural spaces nearby. The stunning Brent Reservoir is a short walk away to the south, with a mass of woodland and nature trails for some peace and quiet when it’s needed. Fryent Park is another sizeable park about the same distance to the south west. After the walk, stop by the friendly cafes in Sunny Hill Park and Hendon Park, to the east and south east respectively.
