From Central London:
Harrow Museum is located at the end of Pinner View in Harrow (HA2 6PX) It is in Zone 5.
From Euston catch the fast 'Tring' train - there are about two per hour, normally from platform 8 or 9. You will need to alight at the first stop, which is Harrow and Wealdstone. The train journey takes approximately 12 minutes.
Walking from Harrow and Wealdstone:
Unfortunately signposting in Harrow isn't great. Leave Harrow and Wealdstone Station on the 'Harrow' (platform 1) side, and exit the car park to the right and follow the path round which leads to Princes Drive. Turn right onto Princes Drive and walk straight down - you will see the Crown Court at the end. Turn left onto Headstone Drive (the main road), and walk straight down, over the crossroads with traffic lights, all the way to Pinner View. (When walking along Headstone Drive you will pass the Crown Court on your right, as well as the Kodak Factory. After the crossroads the road is renamed Headstone Gardens) When you get to Pinner View you will see the Museum signposted. Walk down Pinner View until you get to Harrow Museum. The walk from Harrow and Wealdstone Station takes about 15-20 minutes.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to get a bus from Harrow and Wealdstone Station, exit the 'Wealdstone' (platform 6) side of the station. The stop for the H9 bus is just outside. It takes three stops to get to the museum - you will need to alight at the stop after the crossroads. Tell the driver you need to get off at Pinner View / Harrow Museum. The bus should only take a few minutes. However, please take into account that the buses come every 15 minutes or so, and are not always regular!
The local taxi firm is 'Classic Cars' on 020 8423 8000. You will need to make it clear which exit of the train station you will be at.

North Harrow is the closest station on the Metropolitan Line (Watford Branch). From the station, turn left. You will reach cross roads with traffic lights - you need to head straight over. Following the path ahead, you will pass a petrol station on the left as well as roads to residential streets. After about 10-15 minutes you will see Pinner View - turn left and follow the path all the way down to the museum.
Alternatively, Harrow-on-the-Hill is also on the Metropolitan Line. Alight at the station, and turn left where you will see the bus station. You will need to get the H14 bus, which leaves approximately every 12 minutes. Ask to get off at the stop closest to the Kodak Factory / Zoom leisure centre, just after the crossroads (Headstone Gardens and Harrow View crossroads). The bus journey will take about 5 minutes.
After getting off the bus, you will need to walk down Victor Road to the very end. Then turn right onto Pinner View where the museum will be signposted. The walk from the bus stop will take less then 5 minutes.
By car you need to approach the museum from the road called Headstone Gardens / Parkside Way. Turn on to Pinner View (by brown and white heritage sign) and follow it down for approximately 300 metres. You will see a car park on the right. The car park is free.
