The borough of Harrow is comprised of 18 primary neighbourhoods, though some of these are shared with other nearby post towns, such as Pinner, Stanmore and Edgware. The neighbourhoods of Harrow-on-the-Hill and Harrow & Wealdstone offer the best transport links to the wider area, with the Metropolitan and Piccadilly Lines, Overground Network, and Chiltern Railways serving the area. Generally though, this part of London will still possess more of a traditional English village feel, in keeping with its history and legacy.
Most London boroughs are considered pretty safe when compared to other major capital cities, and Harrow is no exception. Even in the quieter areas though, tourists are still advised to be aware of pickpockets, and it is not wise to leave any personal possessions unattended. Harrow does, however, benefit from being rather more affordable than other London boroughs, particularly those closer to the central and financial districts, which makes it a favourable destination.
Much of the areas towards the outskirts of London were at one time independent villages or parishes that were engulfed as the city expanded over time. In addition to the storied past of the capital, Harrow itself also has several points of note that visitors may find interesting.
Here are some of our favourite facts about the Harrow area:
Less expensive than some neighbouring parts of London, but pricier than other areas in the home counties, the cost of living in Harrow can fluctuate based on location. Renting an apartment in the town centre can range from £1,100 to £1,500 a month, depending on the number of bedrooms, while apartments outside the centre can fall either side of £1,000 mark, costing anywhere between £800 to £1,200 monthly. This can make serviced accommodation from TheSqua.re a viably cheaper option for longer term visitors, particularly when taking into account the many benefits and additional perks that come from renting for an extended period of time.
Day to day activities range in price from the dear to the easily affordable. Medical costs will usually be far reduced thanks to the NHS, with residents normally needing to pay only for private healthcare treatments, cosmetic surgeries, or dental care. Eating out can range from £13 for a meal for one at an inexpensive restaurant, to upwards of £45 for a three-course meal for two at a mid-range restaurant. Fortunately, the cost of groceries is relatively low, so self-catering is always an option. For those visitors likely to be travelling around a lot, we would advise looking into purchasing a monthly travel pass or railcard, as the cost of tickets and travel fares can easily mount up.

Street food and takeaway joints are also options in Harrow, with the likes of Them and Dabeli Hut serving the best of Indian and Vietnamese. For a true street food dining experience however, visitors will want to look to Central London for the various pop up markets and stalls on offer, including favourites such as the Southbank Centre Food Market, Beboz, The Street Pig, Model Market, Street Food Union and Vauxhall Street Food Garden.
With Central London just a short commute away, offering the likes of Oxford Street, Covent Garden and Westfields, residents of Harrow will easily be able to get out and find anything they need to buy, whether that be gifts, groceries or fashion.

Getting around Harrow is easy. The area is served by numerous Underground, Overground and bus services that are run by Transport For London. Harrow-on-the-Hill is the Tube station located in the centre of town, and is served by the Metropolitan and Aylesbury Line, as well as Chiltern Railways. Other local stations include West Harrow (Metropolitan Line), South Harrow (Piccadilly Line), Headstone Lane (London Overground) and Harrow & Wealdstone (Bakerloo, Overground, Southern and London Northwestern Railway). The Tube is the most convenient and cost-effective way to travel around Greater London, and journeys into Central will cost around £5-8, though Day Travelcards can be bought for Zones 1-5 (covering most of the city) for £18.10.
London is, of course, famous for its iconic taxis and red buses, and with 700 bus routes in operation across the city, including 52 night services, travellers can be sure they will always be able to get back home after a night on the town. Harrow itself is reliably snug and pedestrianised, so getting around by foot is always an option for those who prefer to sightsee as they travel. The town also boasts strong road links to the M4 and M1, meaning that tourists and business travellers with their own vehicle will be able to get out and about into the wider country in no time at all.
With a generally temperate climate across much of the UK, the weather can range from temperatures below freezing during winter, to hot and balmy heights of thirty and above in July and August. Weather patterns can be unpredictable however, and even on the brightest days, rain may still be just a cloud away, so longer-term visitors are advised packing for all outcomes, just in case. September is usually a good time to visit Harrow, as this month offers comfortably warm days and cooler evenings, enabling travellers to get out and about whenever they choose and make the most out of that long-awaited stay.
