All about Harrow

Harrow is a unique part of Northwest London, combining English tradition, history and charm with all the zest and convenience of a modern, multicultural community. It is a large suburban town in the London Borough of Harrow and is centred 10.5 miles (16.9 km) Northwest of Charing Cross which is one of London’s main train stations.

Harrow-on-the-Hill includes a conservation area with a high proportion of listed buildings with a residential and institutional array of Georgian architecture and a few 17th century examples. Stately school buildings line the High Street of Harrow on the Hill, an especially picturesque district of winding Victorian roads and shops. There are numerous pubs and tea rooms to eat, drink, socialise and relax, depending on your mood of course. Dominating the scene is the distinctive hilltop Church of St Mary's which makes for a great scenic view and a sample of Harrow’s history. Harrow's name comes from Old English ‘hearg’ which means "(heathen) temple", this was likely to be located on the hill of Harrow, where St. Mary's Church now stands today.

The area's past times are documented in the Harrow Museum, housed in a medieval estate in North Harrow. It brings together The Grade I-listed Headstone Manor, a 14th Century moated mansion once belonging to Henry VIII, a tithe barn, a smaller barn and a granary. Back in the present, Harrow offers contemporary shopping (with two major malls), stylish restaurants, a lively nightlife and hundreds of acres of meadow and woodland to the north of the borough for you to roam until your hearts content.

Harrow is home to a large University of Westminster campus and is known for its inclusive, multicultural schools. It's probably best known for Harrow School, a prestigious boys' public school attended by seven future Prime Ministers including Winston Churchill. Harrow school has set the precedent for schools across the borough, with many, including our own being graded as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
