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.
