Golders Hill Park Area Guide
Golders Green is known to have existed since the 13th century although it grew rapidly with the opening of Golders Green underground station in 1907. It is a cosmopolitan area with a huge choice of restaurants from kosher food through to Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Korean and Italian. This is in addition to over a dozen coffee bars and a number of specialist food stores including two Japanese, two Iranian, one Korean and one Malaysian.
