Where to go and what you will find in West Harrow
West Harrow is place on the western side of the London Borough of Harrow, in the north west of London. The area takes its name from its placement, and sits amongst Harrow on the Hill, North Harrow, Green Hill and Ryan's Lane. The region is mostly residential, as is most of Northwest London. This residential tendency in the area stems from the fact that the area was mostly rural until the metropolitan line extended to Uxbridge. This led to homes being built and it was too late for much other use of the land. With its large expanses and lessened connections, the area was perfect for residential building, rather than any other sort of urban development. West Harrow has its own stop on the metropolitan line, making it easy to get to, though areas this far northwest can often take a while to get to. The metropolitan line has rather longer distances between stops here than more centrally.
