Harry Beck, who created the London Underground map in 1931, lived in Finchley. There’s a plaque commemorating him, along with an image of his original map, on the southbound platform. Beck was paid just 10 guineas for the design (roughly £10).

Several episodes of the Channel 4 comedy Peep Show were filmed in Finchley.
