Visit Harrow Museum

Out in the London Borough of Harrow, they have local history just the same as those of us in inner London, and the Harrow Museum, located across listed buildings in the beautiful grounds of Headstone Manor, is an educational museum examining that history.

Headstone Manor itself dates back to roughly 1310, but is sadly only open for tours on summer weekends due to its fragile nature. However, the rest of the museum is open all year round, with permanent exhibition in the Small Barn and the Granary, and the museum's temporary exhibitions and cafe in the historic Tithe Barn, built in 1506 on the orders of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
