Our Neighbourhood

We live in New Barnet, in North London, England.  Our house is in a quiet area and has very good transport links to Central London by either the underground 'tube' or the overground trains. 
In London there are so many things to do: watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace; visit lots of different museums (most of them have free entry); go to see a show, a play or a musical at the theatre; take a boat trip on the River Thames; go on a bus tour round London; visit Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament; visit Greenwich; go to Madame Tussauds or the London Dungeons; go to visit Covent Garden market and so much more!
From our house you can easily travel by car or train to Windsor and see the famous Castle, and also to Cambridge and Oxford where the Universities are.  St Albans Cathedral is nearby too.
