More about Greenford
The relatively large UB6 postcode area is served by a number of tube stations on the Central and Piccadilly lines, providing easy and quick access to the Centre and East of the city. Close to the A40, Greenford also has good links to the M25, the M40 which provides easy travel towards the Midlands, and the M4 towards Wales and the West of England.
There is a good range of parks and open spaces in the area which is just one of the factors which makes the area popular with young families. The largest of these parks, on the site of the former Ravenor Farm, has become the venue for the annual Greenford Carnival, which takes place there every July.
Other notable landmarks include Horsenden Hill, a large open space that rises 279 feet above sea level and offers attractive views of the area as well as a small golf course. The area is also known for its pretty 14th Century Parish Church of the Holy Cross, and the 18th Century Betham House.
Although largely residential, Greenford has an unusual claim to fame in that its Oldfield Tavern public house was a popular haunt for a rock group known as the Detours. In 1964 the group met the drummer, Keith Moon, and were reborn as The Who.
Other sites of interest include the Heritage Centre, which displays a range of historical artefacts from the 20th Century, reflecting on the lives of previous generations in Britain. Greenford is also home to London's only motorcycle museum. The establishment has grown significantly since its formation in 1999, with its initial 60 exhibits now having been extended to well over 200 bikes and pieces of memorabilia.
Several secondary schools serve Greenford's families, including a number of Church of England and Catholic schools that have been rated as Good or Outstanding by Ofsted. There are a couple of Oustanding primary schools in the area and many more which have been rated Good.
