A few 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 usually get to see inside.

The tour lasts around 90 minutes, and in my mind, at £8.50 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 in 2022.

Tickets for tours on Saturday 2nd March at 2pm are now available from here.

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.

The nearest tube station is, unsurprisingly Harrow on the Hill, which is about a 20-minute walk up a hill to the school. The station is served by the Metropolitan and Chiltern lines, and at the moment, there aren’t any planned engineering works on the railway through Harrow, so you shouldn’t have a problem getting there by tube or train.

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

    You might like to add that the Speech Room has been fully renovated since your visit in 2022 and is now even more stunning! Also perhaps worth adding that for those who can’t face the hike up a very steep hill, buses H17 and 258 leave from outside Harrow on the Hill station and drop you at the School. Also easy to access the School from South Harrow on the Piccadilly line – the 258 leaves from outside the station and also drops you at the School.

    Thank you very much for all the wonderful information on your website.
