You are in: Home » Towns » Potters Bar
Potters Bar is situated in the south of Hertfordshire, near to where the M25 and A1(M) motorways meet (known as South Mimms). This excellent location for motorways, plus the rail links into London, makes Potters Bar a popular location for commuters. Other towns near to Potters Bar include Barnet (3 miles), Enfield (5 miles), Borehamwood (5 miles) and Hatfield (5 miles).

Potters Bar was once a Roman town and evidence of this can be seen at Potters Bar Museum. This museum includes exhibits from a Roman tile kiln and it was this connection with pottery that helped to give Potters Bar its name.

There are plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from in the town. There is also a theatre - Wyllyotts - which puts on a varied schedule of shows and entertainment throughout the year.

The Royal Veterinary College is based in the countryside just north of the town, near Brookmans Park.
