Queensbury emerges from a high-flying past

Built on the site of the disused De Havilland airfield, this area of Harrow in north-west London didn't spring up until the 1930s. Queensbury Park opened in 1936 - today it has a wetland, games area and green gym.

Continuing the royal name theme, Queensbury neighbours the district of Kingsbury in Brent. It's also a station on the London Underground, so handy for travelling around the capital.

Get hands-on at the Royal Air Force Museum

Aviation buffs are well catered for in the area. At the Royal Air Force Museum, get up close to aircraft that flew in the Battle of Britain, and sit in the cockpit of a Spitfire. And you can now experience the thrill of soaring through the clouds by immersing yourself in the museum's new 4D Theatre.

The De Havilland Museum is around 10 miles away in Hertfordshire. Learn more about the iconic aircraft company, which played such a huge role in aeronautics development in Britain.
