Avenue House

Venue Info


Avenue House is a Grade II listed building in the heart of Finchley, with a fascinating history, its buildings have something to offer everyone.

Built in 1859 by Rev. Edward Cooper and then enlarged and renovated in 1874 by Henry “Inky” Stephens, Avenue House is a wonderful Victorian mansion with rooms overlooking the Gardens.


In 1989 the east wing of the house was gutted by fire, but it has been restored to its former condition. The house is now a meetings and events venue, while the gardens and arboretum are open to the public.

Rooms Available

The Dining Room
The Dining Room is located on the West side of the building and has a very distinct Victorian feel. It is a room that would have been used extensively when the House was lived in; this is what gives it its uniqueness. In the Dining Room we cater for formal meals or meetings. With a large single table it is ideal for board meetings.
