One of the great things about living in and around London is that there are no shortages of interesting boroughs, towns and villages to visit and explore. Barnet is one of the more interesting of these boroughs, and there is plenty to keep you and the family entertained and enthralled there. Kids and adults alike will find no shortage of fun at the RAF museum in Barnet, as it is a must-see attraction for anyone with an interest in military history. Even if that isn't your thing, you can't help but be impressed by the wide range of exhibits on show, from the famous Spitfires and Lightnings of the world wars, to more modern fighter planes such as the Tornado and Harrier. All are open to be explored, and the Blitz exhibition is worth visiting in itself. Here you can learn about the trials and tribulations British people had to live and work through during the second world war, when Britain was under attack from German war planes.
For people looking for some artistic stimulation, the Depot Arts Centre is well worth checking out. With a busy program that includes stand up comedy, classical and contemporary music, theatre, kids entertainment and much, much more, there really is something for everyone. Not only this, but it has a very highly regarded café serving local, seasonal food. For young children, there is a world of wild discovery waiting to be uncovered at the Belmont Children's Farm, a brilliant working farm where kids and their parents can get up close and personal with all sorts of farm animals, as well as seeing falconry displays and demonstration with all sorts of other creatures. Children will love watching the racehorses exercise, and there are plenty of rides (including a roller coaster) to keep the whole family entertained all day long. Barnet is also a great 'foodie' town, with an award winning fishmongers serving the best of Britain's catches, and a fantastic array of restaurants and cafés to satisfy even the most demanding of palates. There are also some lovely historic pubs and modern bars for your relaxation, and it isn't difficult to feel a thousand miles away from the city, despite being just at the end of the tube line.
