Quite famous; Over the years Harrow has seen the odd celebrity you may have heard of: like an obscure pop singer called Elton John, who was brought up in Pinner Hill, and a moderately famous politician named Winston Churchill, who went to Harrow’s famous independent school.
Welcome to Harrow, the town where Pink Floyd’s Richard Wright, comedian Ronnie Barker, Peter Andre and Ian Dury were born — or at least they were born nearby. And among others, pupils from its famous school include Lord Byron, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as Churchill.
In 1852, Harrow, or Greenhill, as it was once called, had a population of 141, and it was in the country, a few miles from London. Today, it’s a part of Greater London, and a place where celebrities and entrepreneurs alike often choose to live. Harrow’s Regent College, offers a Batchelor Arts Degree in Entrepreneurship. And, with its proximity and short tube journey to central London, it is fast becoming an important entrepreneurial hub.
