Writtle House

Lay your head in the same attractive black and white building as the Royal Family with a stay at Writtle House. The Royals often stayed in the Grade 2 listed building 100 years ago before flying from Hendon aerodrome, but these days anyone can stay at this university accommodation in Hendon, North West London during the summer! With Colindale Tube Station just 5 minutes away, you can travel to nearby Camden and Hampstead quickly, or go just one stop to the huge Brent Cross Shopping Centre.

Writtle House offers 36 single guestrooms across six sections, all of which have access to shared bathroom facilities and communal self-catering kitchens where you can prepare your own food. There’s also a communal TV lounge, and there’s a laundrette and car parking on-site. Thanks to IT network access points you can get on the internet too. During your stay you can pop into Hendon to make the most of the shops, restaurants and bars, or hop on public transport to travel into Central London.


Writtle House provides a peaceful base for your stay in London, yet is just a short journey from the capital’s major attractions. In the local area you can shop, eat and drink in Hendon, go for a walk in Colindale Park, or explore the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture and the RAF Museum. Hop on the tube from Colindale Station and you can be in Brent Cross Shopping Centre in just a few minutes, with Hampstead and Camden also within a quick journey. The West End is easy to reach too.
