"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."

The views afforded by Harrow's position are exceptional!

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.
