A great place to get your hair done, as a wash and blow dry is only £20 and no appointment is needed - just walk in!

Shake Tastic

Ideal Fish Bar

Ideal Fish bar is my favourite on a Friday lunchtime. Fish and chips served all afternoon for £3.75!

Vintage Bar

An ideal drinking hole for a quick after work cocktail or for a livelier evening with the DJ on a Friday or Saturday night. The raspberry mojito is the best!

The Queens Head

A lovely pub for a drink in the beer garden or for a lovely Sunday roast on a cold winter's afternoon

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

  1. About North Harrow

    North Harrow is a residential area of North West Outer London. Despite its name, it is actually to the north-west of central Harrow. It has grown outwards from the North Harrow underground station which is on the Metropolitan Line which runs from Aldgate to Watford. It is one stop away from Harrow town centre. Before the station was opened and the suburb developed, the area was originally known as Hooking Green. It has a large non-English population and is also one of the better areas of Harrow, in terms of safety and quality of education of its schools.
