Harrow on the Hill: top of the class
Located in north west London, Harrow on the Hill is perhaps most famous for being within the same district as Harrow School. There’s been a settlement here since at least the 8th century, and it was once visited by King Charles I who, while fleeing Oxford before surrendering to the Scottish Army, stopped here to water his horses and catch his last glimpse of the capital. It’s now a picturesque town with a variety of important historic buildings.
