Golders Green is located in London, in the Borough of Barnet, and it lies some 8.5 km north west of Charing Cross, making it popular with commuters, who use the local underground station to reach all parts of central London.
The area boasts a great variety of housing and has some interesting Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings. The London underground station is located right next to the Art Nouveau building of Golders Green Hippodrome, which was once home to the BBC Concert Orchestra. The Hippodrome dates back to 1913 and was originally designed as a 3,000-seater music hall, but the addition of a theatre stage created just half the seating hoped for.
The Hippodrome served as a pre-West End theatre for many years until the BBC took over the building in the early 1960s to use it as a television studio. The BBC eventually left the Hippodrome in 2003, which by then had become a Grade II listed building that was too expensive to refurbish and maintain.
If you had tried to enter the Hippodrome during the years it was left empty, to deteriorate and fall to ruin, you would have only had yourself to blame, if you were injured. Warning notices try to prevent unauthorised persons from entering dilapidated buildings. However, if you visited the El Shaddai International Christian Centre today, the new owners of the Hippodrome building, and you had an accident in the evangelical church, you could make a compensation claim in Golders Green against the Centre, provided you could prove they had been negligent in their duty of care.
If you slipped and fell down the stairs at Golders Green underground station because somebody had spilled ice cream all over the stairs, you could make a claim against London Underground or whoever is responsible for the upkeep, cleaning and maintenance of the building.
