"Southgate Underground Station was designed by notable architect Charles Holden in the 1930s and was built in an Art Deco style with a futuristic twist. Now Grade II listed, it retains a number of its original features."

I love exploring the wealth of parkland in Barnet and in particular, Brunswick Park!

East Barnet quote

Ben Connolly

With its UFO-like design, Southgate Underground Station is a real architectural gem.

Southgate has fantastic road routes in and out of London, which makes it the perfect place for families.

What locals say about East Barnet

  1. East Barnet has the best of both worlds, London on the Green Belt. The parks are lovely, the schools amazing (it's known as the Golden Triangle for schools) and the amenities all on your doorstep. There are independent butchers and greengrocers and if you want a big supermarket there is that too. Fantastic transport links (buses, trains and tube) all within walking distance and it's 10 minutes drive from M25. Best of all a Barnet postcode EN rather than N, gets you far more for your money - not that it is cheap but your pound does go further than a London postcode- yet there you are, in London. Perfect - I would not live anywhere else!

  2. Close to the Hertfordshire countryside, easy access to central london
