Taking a trip in a Zipcar

Things to do in and around Barnet by car

Aside from the great choices in restaurants and shops in Barnet, you can also drive up to the RAF Museum there. You can see some of the famous planes from aviation history, including a set of planes from the Battle of Britain. If golf is more your thing there are two courses; the South Herts Golf Course and the Metro Golf Centre. If you prefer your green spaces without balls and clubs, there’s Monken Hadley Common in the north of the borough and Edgwarebury and Watling Park in the west. All are perfect for day’s wander or a relaxed picnic.

Of course a Zipcar is a great way to escape the city for the day. So why not head north to Welwyn Garden City. Only a 40 minute drive away, you can enjoy gold, a dry ski slope, tennis, squash, a gym and bowls. You can also leisurely explore the town and enjoy the beautiful gardens, making it the perfect place to get away from the stress and noise of London. You could also drive out east to Chelmsford. Here you could load the car up with lots of shopping, while finishing a day of shopping in one of the many high-quality restaurants there. There’s also museums, parks, and the Tropical Wings Zoo. No matter what you’re interested in, there’s something for everyone.
