Hillingdon is the second largest London borough by area, located 14 miles west of central London. It has Heathrow Airport on its boundaries, making it the gateway to the UK.
Hillingdon is where town and country meet, with 800 acres of woodland, country parks, fields and farms, several rivers and the Grand Union Canal. The borough maintains over 200 green spaces, adding up to about 1,800 acres, so there are many wonderful walks in Hillingdon. Ruislip Lido has one of London's few beaches.
The borough has more land under the prestigious Green Flag status than any other London borough. It is also home to four 18-hole golf courses.
