A Little Bit About Swiss Cottage
The north-west London district of Swiss Cottage spreads out around a major road junction chiefly involving Finchley Road, Adelaide Road and Avenue Road. Here, a landmark building – Ye Olde Swiss Cottage pub – has been familiar to locals and passing motorists for many years. The Swiss Cottage was originally a farmhouse’s dairy built between 1803 and 1804 when the surrounding area was in countryside outside London. It then became a public house called The Swiss Tavern as the city limits expanded in the early 19th Century. The name possibly coming from a contemporary opera. In 1965, the original architecturally-looking English building was reconstructed in the style of an actual Swiss chalet or cottage.
Swiss Cottage never enjoyed the discreet exclusivity of neighbours St John’s Wood, Hampstead and Belsize Park or the youthful verve of Camden, but in recent years, it has had an amazing facelift. The local council, while declaring part of Swiss Cottage a conservation area, carried out an £85 million regeneration scheme which resulted in a new state-of-the-art sports and leisure centre and a refurbished library. The library, a Grade II-listed building designed by Coventry Cathedral architect Sir Basil Spence, now incorporates a gallery exhibiting works by local artists. The redevelopment also includes a landscaped park as well as new housing, community facilities, a market opening three days a week, and a purpose-built home for the Hampstead Theatre. The northward stretch of Finchley Road offers decent shopping opportunities and a retail and entertainment complex, the 02 Centre.
To many older residents, Swiss Cottage is not a locality but a former road junction. Properties are regarded to be in either Hampstead or St. John’s Wood. Non-residents generally refer to the whole area as Swiss Cottage.
