The London Borough of Barnet is in north London. It is the second largest London borough by population and the fourth largest by area. The borough was formed in 1965 from parts of the counties of Middlesex and Hertfordshire.

Much of the borough is within the Metropolitan Green Belt. It has a large number of parks and open spaces, including parts of Hampstead Heath, Hampstead Heath Extension and Golders Hill Park. The borough has eight local nature reserves, and is jointly responsible (with Brent) for the Welsh Harp (Brent) Reservoir, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

It's also home to League Two football team, Barnet Football Club.
