Barnet offers capital alternative

Barnet offers capital alternative

The London suburb of Barnet has always been popular with those who have to travel into the capital for work.

However, the area has a lot more to offer residents than just an ideal placed location and, with plenty of property for sale in Barnet, it could appeal to young singletons, couples and families looking to settle down.

There are a wide range of things to do in the area, including an Odeon cinema that shows the latest Hollywood blockbusters as well as the occasional movie classic.

Locals also enjoy the Barnet Museum and the All Saints Art Centre as they provide a chance to discover more about the area and Barnet's history.

The London suburb also has a great number of restaurants offering a mix of cuisine that should appeal to the majority of foodies.

For sporting fans, Barnet has a local football ground, Underhill Stadium, that was once home to a Skrill Premier team, as well as a number of amateur sides.

Families with children will also be keen to discover that the area can offer in terms of education options. There are a number of schools in the borough itself, as well as the surrounding areas. The most local is East Barnet School but parents may want to research other options such as those based in nearby Southgate.

For older children, Barnet and Southgate College is a successful further education college with over 16,000 students. It also provides adult learning courses that could appeal to those hoping to take up a new interest or expand their skills.

Barnet also has a reasonable shopping centre - whose car park was used in the filming of the James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies.  

There are good transport links into the centre of London, with regular bus services in and out of the capital. Barnet is also on the London Underground network and there are frequent services from High Barnet station on the Northern Line.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801729301-ADNFCR
