We will be traveling from the US to London in March for vacation. An acquaintance who lives in London suggested we stay in either Barnet or Brent. We were originally going to stay in Camden (Covent Garden) but he said he didn't think the area was safe or good for kids. Is Barnet/Brent a good area to base our vacation? We will be visiting the typical tourist sites - Tower of london, Buckingham Pal, British Museum, etc. We don't want to have to spend a lot of time traveling. Any suggestions on how to find a hotel or rental flat in Barnet or Brent? Thanks!
