Harrow is a huge area in north west London and very much a standalone town with a pedestrianised town centre. It's probably most famous for being home to Harrow School, one of the most prestigious private schools in the country with such distinguished alumni as Winston Churchill and any number of royals, politicians and aristocrats.

Harrow-on-the-Hill contains a conservation area with a large proportion of listed buildings with a residential and institutional array of Georgian architecture and a few 17th century examples. It's a very well-connected area with two tube stations on the Metropolitan Line which take commuters into Baer Street in about 17 minutes. It's not just a commuter suburb though, there are enough jobs in the immediate vicinity for it to be a fairly self-contained economic entity.
