This hotel and restaurant has a surprisingly extensive wine list, delicious Sunday lunches and outdoor seating with a nice view for when the weather is good. Great for large groups - book in advance to avoid disappointment, as it gets busy on the weekends. I always say hello to the staff when I walk by to make sure they still have garlic prawns on the menu!

"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."

I love walking down the High Street and seeing all the school buildings, as it reminds me of the area's rich history.

Not only is Harrow School one of the best in the country, it's also steeped in history and beautifully designed.

What locals say about Harrow

  1. Harrow is such a diverse area, with many people actually friendly. Harrow is mainly known for it's prestigious Harrow School for Boys, but it also sports two shopping centres at the heart of the town. The bus system is runs according to schedule most of the time and I feel quite safe most of the time.

About Harrow
