  • Ruislip ( () RY-slip) is a town in Greater London, England, forming part of the London Borough of Hillingdon. Ruislip lies 13.8 miles (22.2 km) west-north-west of Charing Cross, London. It is an ancient ecclesiastical parish in Greater London which lay in the historic county of Middlesex.

The buildings at the northern end of Ruislip High Street form the core of the original village square and are now Grade II listed. It originally featured a central water pump which was moved out of the road in the 1970s as a result of increased traffic. The expansion of the Metropolitan Railway in the early 20th century acted as a catalyst for development in the area. A station was opened in Ruislip in 1904 and the parish council created a new urban district to address the forthcoming population growth. The Ruislip-Northwood Urban District continued until 1965 when Ruislip became part of the newly established London Borough of Hillingdon. Between 1911 and 1961, Ruislip-Northwood experienced a significant rise in population, from 6,217 to 72,791, largely attributed to the extension of the railway. Major landmarks in the area include Ruislip Lido, a former reservoir, now an area of public parkland with its own miniature railway and Manor Farm, a settlement dating from the 9th century which is now designated as a local heritage site. Ruislip is included within the Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner and Uxbridge & South Ruislip Parliament constituencies and is covered by three electoral wards within the local council. As of the 2017 general election, Ruislip is represented by two Conservative MPs: Boris Johnson and Nick Hurd. (en)
