A little bit of history
Harrow might be best known for the elite Harrow school, but we've a rich history besides, dating all the way back to before the Romans. You can step back in time and explore our history by visiting one of the many historical buildings in the area. We recommend Headstone Manor, one of England's few remaining moated houses which dates back to medieval times and has allegedly been the site of many ghostly happenings. Grim's Dyke Hotel is another must, designed by Arts and Crafts architect Sir Norman Shaw, it is an eccentric example of Gothic Tudor grandeur and was once home to W.S. Gilbert, half of the famous duo Gilbert and Sullivan. St Lawrence
