Barnet is a Borough of North London in an elevated position, bordering Hertfordshire and is served by the Northern and Piccadilly Lines of the tube network, as well as having the M1 & other major A-roads running through it.
This highly accessible Borough is within easy reach of countryside too, although there is the Welsh Reservoir, nature reserves and 2 main parks – Ravenscroft Local Park and Barnet Recreational Park. There are also a selection of golf courses in the area.
High Barnet is home to the Odeon cinema, the Barnet Museum (opened in 1938) and the traditional Barnet Fair. The Fair dates back to 1588 when Queen Elizabeth I granted a charter giving Barnet the right to hold a twice yearly fair. There is also East Barnet Festival of arts, music and sports for 2 days in late June.
