London - Harrow
Harrow is in outer North-West London.
Harrow on the Hill Underground Station is on the Metropolitan Line. Outside the station is a fairly large bus station.
Although Harrow and Harrow on the Hill are technically the same area they feel totally different. Harrow town centre is a bustling shopping and business area while Harrow on the Hill has remained almost unchanged for a hundred years.
Harrow is famous for its school, Winston Churchill attended it as did 7 British Prime Ministers. The school is at the top of the hill, the buildings and surrounding area are a step back in time. Try to go in term time on a Sunday as the pupils in long coats and straw boaters, and the masters in mortar boards are a sight rarely seen anywhere outside of Hollywood films of "Olde England"!
- St George's and St Ann's, Two shopping centres housing a range of high street stores, including Topshop, Primark, BHS, TK Maxx, Monsoon.
St Ann's has an upstairs food court with a KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. St George's has a small number of restaurants on the same floor as the cinema.
