Why do you find HA1 a great place to live?


"I love Harrow on the Hill so much as the area is cosmopolitan, has a selection of independently owned businesses and has great transport links into central London."

September 2016


"Harrow on the Hill is a gem, as yet undiscovered by the majority of Londoners. Every person I have introduced to the Hill has, without exception, loved its old world, unspoilt charm and the beautiful historic buildings of Harrow School. A surprisingly easy commute to the City, Canary Wharf and central London...it's not going to remain undiscovered for too long...."

July 2015


"Remote location, however easy commute to central London."

February 2015


"Harrow on the Hill is so clean and silent. Also the transportation to the centre of London is very comfortable by tube. The peace and quiet in Harrow on the Hill always makes me feel refreshed."

February 2015


"Great local market, town centre, outstanding schools and very good connectivity to central London."

"The black ties worn by pupils at Harrow School were implemented at the time of Queen Victoria's death. After the initial mourning period, they were never instructed to revert back to their original ties, meaning that they are still black to this day."

Sing and Sign (Harrow)

St George's Church
Shell and I have been singing since I could talk and signing with children of all ages for the past 20 years. Sing and Sign classes are useful, fun, easy to learn and babies LOVE them too. It's a real winner! The moment when a child signs "milk" "more" or even "duck" for the first time and the delight when they realise they are understood is beyond comparison. Website
