Shayona Sweet & Savouries

Best place to enjoy local Indian sweets and savoury snacks.


The best vegetarian food that is also eggless too, so great for those with allergies and special dietary requirements. The ice cream and desserts are yummy. Very friendly service.


The best dessert place in Pinner/North Harrow! Yummy ice cream and vegetarian snacks, this store is ideal for birthday parties...

St George's Shopping Centre

Shopping, gym, cinema and dining all in one area of Harrow town centre.

St John the Baptist

Looking over Pinner for hundreds of years, this church is a beautiful landmark. It runs a community centre with lots of classes and activities for all ages.

Fitz Gym

Open from 06:30am to 22:00 during the week, this gym is perfect for those who spend their working day in and around Harrow. Amongst its many facilities is a pool, sauna, steam room, spin class section and a wide range of classes, such as dancing and boxing.

Pita Pit

Awesome burrito-style Mediterranean wraps for lunch and dinner.


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

An award-winning milkshake bar in Pinner. Cherry bakewell is highly recommended, but the Ultimate Oreo is probably the most popular!

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!

Harrow on the Hill Market

Harrow on the Hill's local fruit and vegetable market is open Monday through to Saturday. Good quality stuff at low prices!

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


Named after a city and a seaport in central Italy, here you can find a wide selection of paninis, salads, pasta, fresh pressed juices, ice cream and many more. Great for breakfasts and lunch!

The Chocolate Room

This independently owned coffee shop has a lovely selection of 25 hot chocolate flavours. It serves amazing hot chocolate and bespoke handmade chocolates too.

  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.
