Harrow Guide

The North London town of Harrow has a big national claim to fame; it is home to Harrow School, one of the most famous independent schools in Britain. Whilst those looking to move to Harrow may be interested by the spectacle of boys wandering around in varnished straw boater hats, the town itself offers the average inhabitant a far more practical appeal. With frequent over-ground rail and Tube connections to London, Charing Cross being only half an hour away by Tube, good public transport links and national rail links mean that both commuting into London and travelling outside the city are relatively easy.

Harrow’s opportunities for employment come from a number of sources, including the local council, many retail outlets and the headquarters of international bookmakers Ladbrokes; the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Britain’s most specialised orthopaedic hospital, is also in nearby Stanmore. Many other local businesses and job opportunities are advertised in the Harrow Times, a local publication which exemplifies the strong community ties within the Harrow area.

Aside from its obvious educational connections, Harrow also has a large University of Westminster campus in the Northwick Park area; the university is home to one of London’s leading centres for business education and has recently won a BAFTA for one of its productions ‘The Act of Killing’. There is a diverse mixture of successful primary and secondary schools in Harrow with nursery schools, high schools, faith schools and special needs schools serving the local community.

Sport is also big in Harrow with Harrow’s young cricketers consistently doing well in the annual London Youth Games whilst in football the two main local teams, Harrow Borough and Wealdstone, both play in the Ryman Premier Division and enjoy a fierce local rivalry. The Harrow Town Sports Club, Harrow Golf Course, Harrow Leisure Centre and the Skatepark provide a wide range of sporting services for the local community. Culture is also readily represented with Harrow being home to the Usurp Arts Gallery & Studio, an innovative not for profit art collective studio opened in 2010, which acts as a community base for artists, musicians, performers and designers, frequently hosting local creative events.

There are many other attractions within the Harrow area, including the associated Harrow Arts Centre, such as the Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre which provides information on local history with events all year round. One of Harrow’s defining features, refreshingly for a town the London Borough, is its expansive 400 hectares of public parkland and open green space; Harrow parks offer a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of inner city London for those considering moving house.
