It’s nice having a break from the school run isn’t it? We are always so caught up in the rat race, we often forget how important it is to spend time with the family.
With the Easter break here, some residents, especially the younger ones, will have a full two weeks to relax and enjoy some well earned family time.
So what’s there to do in Harrow? Well there’s lots of workshops, holiday camps and children’s activities, many of which can be found in our events calendar or advertised on our social media pages.
Just outside of Harrow, there’s plenty going on at Wembley Arena including concerts from 5 Seconds of Summer and the Masked Singer Live show. There’s also the fantastic Jurassic Encounter at Cassiobury Park in Watford that you could take your children to see.
I’m addition, in High Wycombe (about 45 minutes drive away) has a History of Video Games exhibition, featuring classic console and arcade machines that you can try out.
Harrow itself, has always had many things to see and do throughout the holidays, we asked our 35k group members to let us know what the best family activities there are in the borough.
“Go to Headstone Manor/Pinner Memorial Park, go to Puttstars, check out all the activities at Harrow Leisure Centre, take a walk up Harrow on the Hill, do the George V farm walk.”
“All my 4 children have moved away, however when they come to visit me in Harrow with my grandchildren, we often go to Headstone Manor Park. There is a nice cafe and a lovely children’s play area.”
“Eat, cinema, soft play, shop, parks, playgroups, church, pub, walk down Southhill, meet nice people. Go to nice cafes, IE cafe 222.”
“Go to the Headstone Museum so interesting.”
“Great parks, places to eat and transport links.”
“We like HarroWall, Harrow Gymnastics Centre, Woodland Adventure Harrow and the cafe at Boxtree Park. The lovely people at Colour & Clay also run some great family sessions, and they have a subsided parent and carer pottery course available at the moment.”
”If anyone is looking for a fun afternoon with the kids, Holy Trinity Wealdstone have Messy Church this coming Wednesday, from 3:30pm-5:30pm.”
“Harrow on the Hill has a wealth of sites. The first fatal car accident site on the lower road and the graveyard at St Mary’s has many interesting stones too including Byrons poem, and a rather gruesome train accident!”
