Facts and statistics about the borough of Hillingdon

Hillingdon is the second largest of London's 33 boroughs and takes its name from a Parish recorded in the 11th century.

More than half of Hillingdon's 42 square miles is a mosaic of countryside, including canals, rivers, parks and woodland. As the home of Heathrow Airport, it is also London's foremost gateway to the world. It shares its borders with Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hounslow, Ealing, and Harrow. In addition to Heathrow Airport, Hillingdon is also home to the RAF airport at RAF Northolt.

It was created in 1965 by an amalgamation of the Borough of Uxbridge and the Urban Districts of Hayes & Harlington, Ruislip-Northwood and Yiewsley & West Drayton.
