Things to see and do in Northwood
Rivers, lakes, woods, parks; Northwood is flanked on all sides by beautiful environments which are perfect for spending time outdoors. Whether you’re exploring Ruislip Woods and Oxhey Woods, going for a stroll through Moor Park or playing a round of golf at one of the many local clubs, you can also head to the beach at Ruislip Lido and go for a swim on a pleasant day.
As if that wasn’t enough, Colne Valley Regional Park is also within walking distance of Northwood. Here you’ll find a vast network of walking and cycling trails spread out over 43 square miles, taking you along rivers and lakes, through forests and around reservoirs. Back in town you can take advantage of Northwood’s modern amenities, which include child-friendly spots like Eastbury Play Area.
There are plenty of strong schools in and around Northwood, with options for little ones including Hillside Infant School, Hillside Junior School and Frithwood Primary. All three of these schools are rated as good by Ofsted, while Pinner Wood School is outstanding and has a catchment area which reaches Northwood.
At secondary level, Northwood School is also ranked as outstanding by the education board, with the same going for Haydon School in neighbouring Eastcote. This area is also known for its selection of private schools, which includes Northwood College for Girls, St Helen’s School and St Martin’s School.
Northwood transport links
This area is very popular among city workers, thanks to its two stations on the Tube’s Metropolitan line - Northwood and Northwood Hills. This means you can get to places like Baker Street, Euston Square and King’s Cross St Pancras without needing to change trains. The M1, M40 and M25 motorways are all close by, while Heathrow Airport is around 10 miles south, a journey of only 20 minutes in the car.
The Northwood property scene
This is a very desirable area with some superb properties, which is why house prices are considerably higher than the London average. From grand Arts and Crafts family homes to smart terraces and affordable flats, you can also find stunning modern apartments just a few miles east of Northwood at Harrow’s Eastman Village development.
Wherever you decide to buy your next home, don’t miss offers such as the London Help to Buy scheme. Available to first-time buyers you can secure a new home with just a 5% deposit and 55% mortgage, with the Government making up the rest in the form of an equity loan.
