Charles Coverdale, of Uxbridge Road, said: “I’d agree that Bentley Priory Museum is the best place to visit in Stanmore. We had Canadian relatives visit us last year and we took them to the museum. It’s steeped in history and its importance in shaping how the world is now cannot be underestimated.
“Stanmore has a lot going for it and if you want more of a lively feel central London is a short hop on the Jubilee Line.”
