Barnet: Commuters rejoice in London borough

Barnet: Commuters rejoice in London borough

While there will be some people for whom the lure of the big lights and all of the glitz and glamour will attract them to live in London as well as work there, for many capital workers, it will be far more convenient and affordable for them to live outside the city and commute in each day.

If this is something that you are looking for as a buyer, then you might think about turning towards one of the boroughs that exist on the outskirts of the capital itself as an alternative to the city centre. These offer the chance to live in close proximity to your workplace but while also having the relative quiet of being away from the busy streets.

One such area that will be perfect for this will be discovered by those who are out and seeking property for sale in Barnet. This is a small suburban area in the London borough of the same name which acts perfectly as a commuter base.

Travel will be the main thing that people working in London will worry about, and this will not be an issue from Barnet. As well as being served by a wide array of London bus services, it is also on the Underground network. High Barnet station is on the Northern Line, and it has services every three to nine minutes during busy periods, making the 10.2 mile journey to Charing Cross a breeze.

Of course, transport will not be everything, however. While it is important, residents of any commuter area will also want to make sure they have a place to live that offers them much to do when they aren't at work, and this is another area Barnet excels in.

The town has its own Odeon cinema for those looking to catch the latest Hollywood releases, while it is also home to a number of other different areas that will be ideal for a spot of evening or weekend entertainment including the likes of the Barnet Museum and the All Saints Art Centre.

There are also a wide array of restaurants on offer, meaning that people do not have to go into the city itself when they are looking to enjoy a night out with a partner or friends. Cuisine includes French, Italian, South-East Asian and Chinese among others.

And for a little bit of community spirit, residents can also enjoy the annual Barnet Fair, an event where they can take part in the funfair, ideal for families who have kids.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801584541-ADNFCR
