Live the Pinner life
Whether you’re gravitating away from the heart of the capital to gain more space or you’ve always preferred a quieter way of life, Pinner is a wonderful part of London to buy a new home in. And thanks to offers such as our Movemaker scheme, doing just that could be easier than you think.
Things to see and do in Pinner
There are plenty of green spaces close to the heart of town, including Pinner Village Gardens where you’ll find children’s play areas and sports facilities. Pinner Memorial Park is next to the Heath Robinson Museum, while Ruislip Woods are only a couple of miles west.
If you continue a little further in this direction, you’ll quickly reach Colne Valley Regional Park, which is spread over some 27,500 acres and home to an array of spectacular walks. With Oxhey Woods, Harrow Arts Centre and Roxbourne Park all close to town too, you’ll never be stuck for places to go and things to see.
Pinner may be relatively small, but it’s served by no fewer than seven schools rated as outstanding by Ofsted. This includes primary options Pinner Park Primary, St John Fisher Catholic Primary, West Lodge Primary and Pinner Wood School. The local secondary options are Northwood School, Haydon School and Nower Hill High, which all look after girls and boys aged 11 to 18.
Pinner transport links
As well as good access to the local bus network, Pinner has an Underground station on the Metropolitan line. This gives you direct access to places like Wembley Park, Baker Street and Euston Square, while it’s only one change and around 45 minutes to central spots such as Covent Garden. Heathrow Airport is only 10 miles south, while Pinner also offers excellent access to the M1, M4, M25 and M40 motorways.
The Pinner property scene
House prices in Pinner are comparable to the London average, which shows that this is a desirable place to live despite being on the outskirts of the capital. This is down to the local transport links, natural spaces and some superb properties which make great use of both of these things.
