Why Move to Harrow?
The large mostly residential town of Harrow serves as the principal settlement of the London Borough of Harrow.
Located in an elevated position around 408 feet high, the town grew in what was historically called Greenhill.
Best known for Harrow School. An independent boarding school for boys, founded in 1572, considered one of the finest secondary schools in the world. Among its past pupils are Winston Churchill, actor Benedict Cumberbatch and Lord Byron: However, Harrow has more to offer than world class education.
We all like to have access to open spaces as well as good transport connections and Harrow certainly delivers on both counts.
Located in Zone 5, two Tube stations and the Overground serve a handful of stations – making things easy for commuters. The area is also well-served by local buses, and road links – including the A312 the A40.
Family friendly amenities abound, and a particular favourite among many, is the local Pinner Memorial Park. A sizeable green area which has plenty for little ones to enjoy such as a playground area and a café.
Local shopping is to be found along the main Harrow High Street complimented by two more modern neighbouring shopping centres, St Anns and St Georges.
When the weekend arrives, Harrow offers a wealth of leisure activities including Harrow Hill Golf Course, tennis club, and riding school.
With leafy green streets and quaint independent shops, Harrow is that perfect mix.
It has the feel of a village with the transport connections of London – perfect for those wanting to start families but who need to commute into the City.

Harrow comes into its own with regard to education and has a large number of private schools located within its boundaries.
The prestigious Harrow School is well worthy of a mention but, state schools in the area also perform well.
Vaughan Primary, St Anselm’s Catholic Primary, Marlborough Primary and Byron Court Primary School have all managed to perform so well Ofsted has rated them all as “outstanding”.
Harrow High is well regarded, and Ofsted awarded it with a “good”, whilst Whitmore High School and St Gregory’s Catholic Science College faired even better, and Ofsted deemed them both “outstanding”.
