    Hillingdon – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. Hang on, isn’t that…?!?
      Sleepy Hillingdon? With its leafy lanes and quiet coffee shops,nNo one famous ever came from here, right? Well, except, US megastar James Corden. Oh, and global rock god Ronnie Wood. Then there’s Nobel Prize winner Alexander Fleming who discovered penicillin, saving millions of lives. 1984 author George Orwell, Bond girl Jane Seymour, Lord of the Rings star Andy Serkis, TV presenter Fearne Cotton, Olympic gold medallist boxer Audley Harrington, England football legend Glenn Hoddle and Claire Richards from Steps (“5, 6, 7, 8!”). But apart from them, not really.
    2. Dandy Highwayman
      William Hawke is lesser known today but he was big news back in the 1700s, he even travelled to America. Well, he was transported to America as punishment. Hawke was one of the most celebrated highwaymen of his day. Nicknamed ‘The Flying Highwaymen’ due to his riding speed, he was said to be a gentleman, who would never rob an Uxbridge man and like Robin Hood he gave to the poor, although the press of the time turned most highwaymen into heroes, so this was probably fabrication. Eventually he was caught and sent to the Americas where he was sold into slavery. But the heroic highwayman escaped (yay!)! Made his way back to England and started robbing people again (boo!). Caught a second time, he bribed his jailor and once more made off. Third time he was not so lucky. Nabbed by the Bow Street Runners he was sentenced to hang. In 1774 he went to the gallows with a flower in his lapel, afterwards his fame and popularity attracted a huge crowd to his funeral. Including his hangman.
    3. Battle Of Britain
      In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part of Hillingdon (Uxbridge to be precise) is the entrance to a bunker. Not just any bunker. This is where 11 Group Fighter Command directed operations which helped win the Battle of Britain and turned the tide of the Second World War. It also took charge, directing aircraft in the build up to D-Day.
    4. Bo-Jo
      Boris Johnson was elected by the people of Hillingdon as their MP. Twice. Now we’re certainly not about to take sides in any political debate, we appreciate for the nation as a whole Boris is still rather ‘Marmite’. But you certainly can’t point fingers at the people of Hillingdon, Bozzer was voted in as Mayor of London twice and was left firmly in charge of England as Prime Minister by the entire nation. So, we’re all either just as guilty or all equally wise, depending on your opinion (which we thoroughly respect). However, we wouldn’t invite Boris to play rugby with our children.
    5. It’s Big!
      Hillingdon is London’s second largest borough. Yes, again courting controversy there are areas that some will claim will always belong to Middlesex… If Middlesex still existed (hey, we don’t make the rules!). It’s also one of the best locations for house hunting as prices are below the London average, which is perfect for those moving to Hillingdon. And it’s pretty darn old, well bits of it are. Hillingdon was one of the few London boroughs to have featured in the Domesday Book of 1086, it had just 10 homes and was in the smallest 40% of settlements listed. But then, it’s not the size of your Hillingdon that counts…

    About Hillingdon

    Leafy, sleepy, not much happening, well, to paraphrase Louis Armstrong for a moment “If you knew Hillingdon, like I know Hillingdon…”. One of London’s largest boroughs is also one of the most surprising. It’s been the home or birthplace to some of the nation’s most loved figures. It’s been the stomping ground of dandy highwaymen, rolling stones, Bond girls, Nobel Prize winners and gold medallists. It hides an underground bunker that helped saved the nation and turn the tide of the Second World War and it has so much to see and do you’ll struggle to know where to begin. Away from the hustle and bustle of Central London, with lower than average capital house prices, it’s easy to see why so many people are moving to Hillingdon.


    Hillingdon is packed with things to do, places to see and food and drink aplenty. Golfists can take a swing at Heathpark Golf Course or Hillingdon Golf Course. History buffs can bone up at The Heath Robinson Museum. You can enjoy a stroll at Hillingdon Court Park or take in live gigs, comedy and plays at the Beck Theatre. One must see is Ruislip Lido, a 60-acre lake with sandy beaches in a great setting. Foodies are spoilt for choice with a huge range of restaurants, cafes, gastro pubs and eateries. There’s also a packed events schedule with ‘happenings’ throughout the year, keep an eye on local press for details.


    Bisected by both the M4 and M40, Hillingdon is also minutes from the M25. If you need a greater escape, the borough is bordered to the south by Heathrow Airport. Hillingdon sits in Zone 6 of TfL and you can be in the centre of London in under an hour.
