Four times a year, there are tours of the famous posh private school in northwest London, and tickets for the next tours are on sale.

The tours take in the historic rooms and buildings at Harrow School including the Fourth Form Room, Speech Room, Chapel and War Memorial Building, amongst others, accompanied by their guides. The tours are a mix of the history of Harrow school and how it was founded, the day-to-day life of a Harrow student today with the traditions and customs, but really, it’s very much a chance to see inside rooms you wouldn’t normally get to see inside.

Tickets for tours on Saturday 25th February at 2pm are now available from here.

The tour lasts around 90 minutes, and in my mind, at £7.50 is very good value for money. Yes, photography is allowed throughout as the tours don’t include any of the student’s private boarding rooms.

A review from my visit last year.

The meeting point is Bill Yard, which is the courtyard in front of the original Harrow school building on Church Hill, overlooking the grand chapel building.

Harrow town centre is postcard pretty and worth a wander around if you arrive early. Arriving early is particularly advised if coming from Harrow on the Hill tube station, because, despite its name, it’s at the bottom of the hill, and that’s a very steep hill to walk up.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I can vouch for the steepness of the Hill as I walked up and down every day to work in what was originally the old fire station and local board office just across from what was the Kings Head public house. This was back in 1965 when the building was the Harrow Education Office. It didn’t seem too steep, but I was a teenager at the time!
