Well known for its school, which has seen such students as Winston Churchill study there, Harrow makes an ideal place to stay at an apartment or house during a vacation to the London area. Self catering accommodation in Harrow is all of the highest standard, and you will quite literally feel right at home as soon as you step through the front door. Staying in Harrow enables you to easily visit London itself, and opens up opportunities for day trips into the Home Counties and Midlands areas.
By staying in self catering accommodation in Harrow, you will be able to make the most of the more tranquil surroundings that are the complete opposite of the frantic inner city areas. A visit to any of the libraries should be made to pick up an excellent walking tour leaflet of the area, and this makes for a pleasant change, especially on a warm day. If you are interested in a game of golf, then there is a course on Harrow Hill, and there are plenty of open spaces if you should wish to go jogging.
London offers an abundance of places to visit, from areas steeped in history to modern art galleries and much more besides. For a bird’s eye view of the city, a ride on the London Eye is a great way to get up above things! Booking a ticket in advance for this is highly recommended and can be done online. A visit to Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben is also a must, as is witnessing the changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace. Whilst you are in London, there may be an international sporting event on, such as a football, rugby or cricket game, or even Wimbledon. Tickets might seem expensive, but the atmosphere will be unparalleled. At night, a play or musical can be seen, or there might even be a movie premier. If you feel like a day trip out from London, then the south coast is within easy reach, as is the Midlands area.
Your holidays in Harrow will be spent in a temperate climate. The top temperatures of twenty five degrees Celsius are reached in the Summer months of July and August, whilst the lows of around eight degrees are reached in December to February. Holidays in Harrow can be taken at any time of year, but the daylight hours are longer during the Summer, and it is much warmer. A rain jacket might be advisable just in case though!
