The London Borough of Hillingdon is the westernmost borough in Greater London, England. It is home to Brunel University and Heathrow Airport.


The borough was formed in 1965 from the Municipal Borough of Uxbridge, Hayes and Harlington Urban District, Ruislip-Northwood Urban District and Yiewsley and West Drayton Urban District of Middlesex.

The councils involved were initially unable to decide upon a name, with Keith Joseph suggesting to provide the name 'Uxbridge' for the borough in October 1963, later revised to Hillingdon.

The London Borough of Hillingdon is responsible for 239 parks and open spaces within its boundaries.

They range in size from the Colne Valley corridor to the smallest gardens and playing fields.

The borough also includes RAF Northolt.
