Does anyone know the Harrow area? I'm looking into moving there but struggling to find any up-to-date info about what it's really like. I've read a lot of alarming posts from a few years ago that mention rising crime, gangs and unsafe areas - is it really that bad compared to the rest of London?
To give a bit of background - my OH and I have been looking to move somewhere like Highgate, East Finchley or West Hampstead (near where we are now), but we'll be very lucky to find a nice, decent sized property to rent within our budget. It looks like we can get much more for our money around Harrow.
I think first and foremost we want somewhere that feels relatively safe (I can walk home from the station at night, for example), in walking distance from a station (we've been looking around Harrow-on-the-Hill and Kenton stations). Ideally it would also have a couple of nice cafes/pubs for when we don't want to travel into London. We don't really want to be any further out on the met line - Harrow-on-the-Hill station is at the maximum of what I want to commute!
Thanks so much in advance for any help!
