Harefield is a village in the London Borough of Hillingdon in northwest London, England. It is situated on top of a hill, 17 miles (27 km) northwest of Charing Cross, near the Greater London boundary with Buckinghamshire to the west and Hertfordshire to the north. The area is famous for its local hospital, Harefield Hospital, where pioneering heart surgery techniques were developed.
