The London Borough of Barnet is a suburban part of North London. The borough was created from parts of the ceremonial counties of Middlesex and Hertfordshire in 1965. It is the largest London borough in terms of population.
Barnet is very popular with young families due to the wealth of green spaces and good schools. It is also favoured by young professionals who are looking for quieter areas that have easy access to central London. It also provides an abundance of entertainment and leisure facilities. The Barnet Market has been going since 1199 and Saracens professional rugby club call the borough home. Just to the north is Hertfordshire, so getting to the countryside is also a short trip.
The M1, A1 and North Circular all pass through Barnet and there is easy access to the M25. Barnet Underground Station is the northernmost stop on the Northern Line with direct travel to the West End and The City, taking about a half-hour.
