Northolt is often an overlooked suburb but it has several parks, a gym, golf practice range and community centres. There are various churches, including the marvellous Saxon church of St. Mary's, set on a green slope in Northolt Village, a Conservation Area. This is a hidden gem with a village green, and a brook running through it, a large thatched pub and restaurant.
For good shopping, bars and restaurants, Ealing and Harrow are close by. Excellent transport links and a variety of housing make this an up-and-coming area to watch for the future.

History of Northolt
One of the last remaining farming areas in the locality, Northolt then went on to host pony racing at Northolt Park from the late 1920s.
