Hatch End is a place in the London Borough of Harrow, located 13 miles (21 km) north west of Charing Cross in Central London. The suburb is part of the Pinner post town.



Hatch End is home to the Harrow Arts Centre, a complex which centres around a large theatre and a smaller studio theatre. Music, dance, theatre, comedy and literature events are all hosted here, along with many workshops and summer schemes run during the holidays.

Also of interest is Letchford House built in 1670.

Local businesses include a number of furniture shops including Chaplins, which holds the largest selection of contemporary designer furniture in Europe plus numerous restaurants – including Italian, Greek, Chinese, American and Indian. Many local people were opposed to the opening of the new Tesco Express store, as they believed that it would lead to the closure of well-established small shops, which indeed it did. Hatch End was home to The Railway public house which was a listed building until property developers 'accidentally' knocked it down.[by whom?] This is now home to Tesco with flats above.


The nearest regional centre for higher order goods is Harrow, 3 miles (4.8 km) to the south, with two shopping malls and a 9-screen cinema, along with numerous restaurants, places of entertainment and bookshops. Pinner. 1.7 miles (2.7 km) to the southwest, offers additional amenities, including a DIY centre, a bookshop and two gift shops. Pinner also is the nearest London Underground station to Hatch End, and the two are linked by the H12 bus service. As Hatch End is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) from the Greater London/Hertfordshire boundary, it is also convenient for Watford, 3 miles (4.8 km) to the north, which also serves as a regional retail centre, linked by a regular train service.
