Short only of a port, the London borough of Hillingdon covers all transport modes, with superb road, rail, underground and air links. Travellers to meetings in Mayfair (28 minutes to Bond Street from Northolt) or Madrid (two hours and 15 minutes from Heathrow), can get there with ease.
What are now Hillingdon's town centres were for many centuries self-sufficient, thriving villages, only absorbed into the capital via the 19th century railway boom. All have retained their character and are still just as vital for local people and the economic life of the borough.
School results in the borough published earlier this year are in line with or better than national results and have improved for the ninth consecutive year. Most schools last year achieved 98 to 100% A-Level pass rates at A-E grade and many pupils scored coveted A* passes.
The borough has a good supply of Grade A office space through top end business parks such as Hyde Park Hayes, Uxbridge Business Park and Stockley Park, the fourth largest concentration of hotels in London, and above all, a council that is supportive of business and investment.
Hillingdon boasts 24 green flags – more than any other local authority in the country – covering 543 hectares of land.
