Underhill Stadium

Key facts

Club: none | Opening: 1907 | Capacity: 6,023 (3,720 standing)

History and description

The Underhill Stadium was until 2013 the home stadium of Barnet FC. It opened in September 1907 with a match between Barnet Alston and Crystal Palace (1-0).

The stadium recorded its highest attendance in 1952 when 11,026 spectators attended a match versus Wycombe Wanderers.

The all-seater main stand got built in 1964, but the rest of the stadium remained terraces until the west bank terrace got replaced by an all-seater stand in 2008.

In 2013, Barnet moved away to The Hive Stadium in Harrow after having been unable to agree on a lease extension for the Underhill Stadium, which is now only used for local rugby matches.

Getting there

The Underhill Stadium is located in the London borough of Barnet on the northern edge of the city, about 10 miles from central London.

The stadium can be reached by underground. Tube station High Barnet, the last stop on the Northern Line, is located a short walk from the stadium. The journey from King’s Cross takes about 35 minutes.

Alternatively, you can catch a train to New Barnet train station, which is a 15 to 20-minute walk from the stadium (or catch bus 84, 384, or 107 from there). Trains run twice an hour from London Kings Cross (or Moorgate during the week). The journey takes about 20 minutes.

If arriving by car from the north, connect to the M25 (from the M1 or M11), exit at junction 23 toward Barnet, and get on the A1081 toward Barnet. Follow for almost three miles and turn right onto Barnet High Street. Follow for almost a mile and turn right just before the railway bridge.
