Start your adventure in Whetstone
Located in a particularly affluent area of Barnet, North London, Whetstone - often referred to along with neighbouring Totteridge as Totteridge and Whetstone - is becoming increasingly popular amongst Londoners both old and young. The area began life as a staging post for carriages heading into London, and indeed can serve a similar purpose today - a pleasant place to stay while embarking on daytrips into the city centre.
Make the most of the area
That's not to say there isn't plenty to see and do in North London before venturing into the city - some of the closer highlights include the Royal Air Force Museum London, Kenwood House, and a rather fine golf course, the South Herts Golf Club, just half a mile away in Totteridge.
Enjoy a day to remember in the capital
Of course London City Centre boasts a huge number of memorable attractions, with the London Eye a must. Covent Garden is also worth exploring, while the typical tourist destinations of Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the British Museum are popular for a reason.
