Hillingdon


Home of the world's busiest airport, Heathrow, and Northolt Aerodrome, the borough of Hillingdon is the most westerly of the London boroughs. It was created in 1965 when West Drayton, Ruislip, Hayes and Uxbridge (formerly in Middlesex) were merged and the borough fell under the control of the then Greater London Council, which has since been replaced by the London Assembly.
As part of her Golden Jubilee tour, the Queen visited Hillingdon and unveiled a piece of public sculpture entitled 'Anticipation' by releasing hundreds of purple and yellow balloons. The borough also boasts part of Britain's vast canal network, many of which were repaired and improved under the Waterways Act in the 1940's, making it the perfect place for a relaxing narrow-boat ride.

Recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086 as a collection of rural communities, Hillingdon now has a culturally diverse population of nearly 250,000.
