While central London is certainly plentiful when it comes to famous attractions, there’s still lots to discover in the Borough itself near our Harrow retirement homes. The Headstone Manor & Museum is one example where you can take a fascinating look at the local history of the area. Situated on the historic grounds of a Medieval manor house, there are thousands of exhibits on show as well as live events and recreations of day-to-day life from different periods in history.

There’s also the famous Harrow School - which is one the country’s oldest independent boarding schools - where you can tour the remarkable Grade I listed buildings. These tours are also very exclusive and only happen three times a year, so get booking now if you’re interested.

If you’d prefer to enjoy Harrow’s green spaces, then the Ruislip Woods National Nature Reserve is just what you need. It’s on the very edge of the Borough and offers visitors enjoyable woodland walks across over 700 acres of beautiful scenery. It’s also a place of Special Scientific Interest because of the amazing wildlife that can be found within the grounds.
