Sometimes known as High Barnet or Chipping Barnet, Barnet is 10 miles to the northwest of central London. Barnet grew up around the location of a 12th century dwelling and more latterly, a market. Despite having one of the biggest populations of all the London boroughs, Barnet is also a very green and open space with leafy streets, and a hill-top location. Barnet is one of the highest elevated part of London at around 427 feet, providing some spectacular views of the city around. With the beautiful countryside of Hertfordshire lying in the opposite direction, it’s a sight worth experiencing.
If you’re familiar with the children’s nursery rhyme “The Grand Old Duke of York” – you might be interested to know that it’s rumoured to be based on this hill at Barnet. This is because one of the most critical battles in the War of the Roses took place on this site in the 15th century.
For those who want to take a break from the crowds of London, Monken Hadley Common is a registered conservation area which is included in both the Pymmes Brook Trail and London Loop, making it a top spot for ramblers and hikers.
Families visiting Barnet and looking for a pleasant day out can visit Belmont Children’s Farm. With rides, birds of prey, racehorses and exhibitions, plus no shortage of animals, there’s something to keep even grown-up children entertained.
Barnet has literary connections too, with writers Fanny Trollope and Kingsley Amis previously living in the area. Culture vultures can visit La Délivrance statue situated at Henley’s Corner, created to celebrate the strength of human spirit following a World War I battle.
