Barnet, Greater London

Overview

The London Borough of Barnet is on the northernmost edge of Greater London between The London Borough of Harrow and The London Borough of Enfield. It was created in 1965 by combining several areas from Middlesex and Hertfordshire. The most well known area is Finchley which has many Japanese immigrants and is a great place to source some excellent authentic sushi. Barnet also has the largest Jewish community in the UK. The area traditionally held a large local horse fair and it led to the word ``Barnet`` becoming the London rhyming slang word for hair, as in Barnet Fair - hair.
