Wealdstone is an area of Harrow, Middlesex in the north-west of the metropolitan conurbation. It is located north of Harrow, south of Harrow Weald, west of Belmont and east of Headstone.


The eponymous Weald Stone is a sarsen stone, acting as both a boundary and mile stone. It is located outside the Weald Stone Inn (formerly the Red Lion), off High Road, Harrow Weald.[1]


The Harrow Leisure Centre [1] is located in Wealdstone and facilities include swimming, badminton, snooker, martial arts and a gym. One of the country's oldest remaining skate parks, Harrow Skate Park, is next to the leisure centre. The park is a major centre of the British skateboarding scene and draws visitors from all over the country.

Wealdstone F.C. have a long association with the town. Their original ground, known as Lower Mead, was located behind the ABC Cinema on Station Road, prior to its controversial sale to Tesco for retail development. After many years of homelessness they are now based nearby in Ruislip, having finally abandoned plans to relocate within Harrow at Prince Edward Fields, Canons Park. Famous ex-players include Vinnie Jones.



There is one station in the district:

Bus routes
