London Bees is an English women's football club affiliated with Barnet F.C.. They play in the FA WSL 2.

Previously known as Barnet F.C. Ladies, they re-branded as London Bees after joining the new WSL 2 for the 2014 season.


The club began in 1975 as District Line Ladies FC then tied up with Wembley FC in 1993 to become Wembley Ladies FC. In 1997 the club moved to play at Hanwell Town FC but kept the Wembley Ladies name. Then in 1998 the club became affiliated to Barnet FC, amalgamating with the existing Barnet Ladies FC from the Greater London League to form Barnet FC Ladies.

In March 2010 Barnet FC Ladies were announced as an unsuccessful bidder for the FA Women's Super League.[1][2] In 2013, they were successful in their bid to join the WSL under their new name of London Bees for the 2014 season.


Barnet FC Ladies play at The Hive Stadium in Canons Park, the home of Barnet F.C..
