Study reveals Harrow to be the ‘least friendly’ borough in London

A recent study by Park Royal based estate agency, LiFE Residential, has found the London Borough of Harrow to be the least friendly neighbourhood in London, with a 52% approval rating.
Commissioned to help Londoners find their perfect place to live, the LiFE Residential London Boroughs Study surveyed over 700 residents across all 33 boroughs and districts on a variety of factors covering transport, environment and neighbourhood.
  • Whilst friendliness may not be it’s coup, Harrow was found to be the 3rd best value for money neighbourhoodwith 66% approval


  • Harrow was also found to have the 3rd highest average monthly commute cost at £137, and the 5th longest average commute time at 48 mins, as it’s outer London location proved to it’s detriment with respect to commutability

Presenting a comprehensive view of everyday London life, notable findings from the study include topics ranging from air quality approval ratings (Barking & Dagenham and Merton joint top, 66%) to local business support strength (1st. Haringey, 77%), as well as everyday bugbears such as commute satisfaction (1st. Hammersmith & Fulham, 76%).

It is not all doom and gloom for Harrow however, one person commented: “I’m not sure why everyone seems to be so negative about life in Harrow. We have many (and there are loads!) of lovely parks all over the borough with some brilliant children’s facilities. We also have some great sporting facilities such as the amazing Harrow Leisure Centre and Roger Bannisters ground. We are also very well connected to all surrounding cities with a train ride to central London being just 15 minutes long.”
