There is nothing to dislike about our local area. The atmosphere is a pleasant and friendly one.
There is nothing to dislike about our local area. The atmosphere is a pleasant and friendly one. There are areas which could do with modernising or regenerating however, Ealing borough are doing a lot of local high rise building over the next few years which is out of keeping with the area in which we live. It will ruin it.
We are right by an over ground station with a level crossing. The trains run from Richmond to Gunnersbury then up and over to Hampstead. There are no bus stops on our street which is quite pleasant but on nearby streets there is a bus that runs to Nottinghill and Chiswick. There are no night buses within 1/4 of a mile of our home. In rush hour the main road at the bottom of ours can get very blocked up, particularly when there are issues down on the main Uxbridge Road. Nearby is the A40 which takes you into central London or out to Oxford.
The road we live on has a mixture of flats, private homes and maisonettes. With that mix comes a cultural mix of families, students, foreigners and council homes. It is a very long road and all the houses are different in style. The road is very wide and quiet with parking for residents and the odd visitor bay. We live close to a church which has a lovely community feel to it. We have had no experience of anti social behaviour since moving here 5 years ago. They often film movies on our road which is fun but can be disruptive as they block off parking and the road.
The amenities in my area are great. There are 2 local gastro pubs. The Stationhouse and The Rocket which both serve great alcohol and food plus have regular DJ nights with great music. The Rocket also has local events running such as markets and open mic nights. There are no bars as such but a great new restaurant that serves cocktails, it is called Fed and Watered. It has has delicious food both for breakfast and dinners. There are also lots of fast food joints some high end and some low end. Theres a shopping centre called the Oaks in which you will find Lidl, Superdrug, Boots, Iceland and Wilko. It is very bare inside and ugly but the shops have what you need.
I love living here, it’s central yet quiet and feels safe.
I love living here, it’s central yet quiet and feels safe. There is a friendly atmosphere where people smile at one another in the street and neighbours say hello and stop for a chat if you decide to engage with them. The area is upmarket and more investment into renovating properties and improving the local area has been evident over recent years. It’s a wonderful area for kids and pets with Wormholt Park seconds away, Hammersmith Park (complete with lake & Japanese garden) a few mins away, and numerous other parks nearby. There’s a recently renovated theatre, tv studio where you can watch filmings & events, Soho House, Shepherd’s Bush Empire hosting music acts, and Pergola rooftop bar. The gardens of the homes back onto each other creating a huge green space for animals to safely roam. The gardens are sheltered and plants grow well. Chiswick, Hammersmith, the river, Notting Hill and Holland Park are all extremely close if you want to venture out of the immediate area.
Amazing transport links with 4 tube stations (central & Hammersmith and City lines), 1 overground station, lots of bus stops, and cycle lanes on main roads. Driving is also easy with the A40 taking you into central London or out to the M40, M1 quickly. The M25 is also easily accessible.
- easy to find parking spots on the street - regular rubbish and recycling collections - friendly neighbours who look out for each other and their properties - street cleaners keep the area clean and free from weeds - neighbours have planted flowers beneath the roadside trees on some roads - a mix of home owners and renters. There are couples, professionals, families and retirees - quiet area - feels like a village yet is so central
There are a wide range of shops catering to every need: a local corner shop with friendly staff who remember you and your preferences, Sainsbury’s, wonderfully fresh fruit, veg & meat on Uxbridge road, Shepherd’s Bush Market and Westfield mall. There’s also a range of gastropubs, good brunch spots, restaurants (many which deliver too) and bars nearby.
Traffic noise is unbearable, so be aware, constantly during peak times.
East Acton area is not safe at all, and I have noticed that it is getting worse and worse with time. This is due to the lack of control from police, especially in the night. People can harass others without even being noticed, and it might easily lead to robbery, stabbing, raping, etc. People who live in the area are generally poor or not wealthy enough to afford a better place. I can't see many families living here, probably because they know it is not safe. So I wouldn't recommend it, not even for pets as parks are quite far from the centre, which is even more unsafe than East Acton itself. It is not a trendy area, there are no proper places to hang out with friends or family, and it looks in need of regeneration, mostly regarding the safety. There are a few fruit market stalls where you can buy cheap fruit and vegetables, and also a couple of market shops, but not a proper market with food and everything. The only good thing of East Acton is the closeness to the massive shopping centre called Westfield.
East Acton station is pretty easy to get to, it is a small tube station but it is served by Central Line, that can take you to Westfield Shopping Centre in just two stops, and this is very convenient. Central Line runs every 2 minutes on day core and it also provides a night service on Fridays and Saturdays. It's an old tube line but it connects many key places in London, very useful for tourists. There is no air/con on the Central Line so it gets really warm in Summer. The trains are usually clean but, as many tourists use it, sometimes you can find some trash on the seats. Buses are available and the service is reliable. Traffic in the East Acton area is the worst part of it. You might find traffic clustering on the roundabout with Old Oak Road. The area is generally not safe, especially in the night.
Traffic noise is unbearable, so be aware, constantly during peak times. The area is not safe because it is not controlled by police, or not enough. I have heard of many stabbing and robbery attempts around the area, especially on the main street in the night. I used to finish work very late and I was scared and pretty uncomfortable every time I had to go back home. Mostly renters live in my street, and they are people from different nationalities. Many house are crowded with people, like 10-12 people per house, which is shocking. This shows again that there is no control in the area, and the local estate agencies can sublet illegally. The local people are generally Arabic or Turkish. Bin collection is a reliable service which provides us different days to collect our recycling rubbish. It can be noisy when it gets collected early in the morning, as you can clearly hear the truck that empties every bin.
We have very few shops around our place, mostly off licences and kebab takeaway. On the main street, we have Greggs, a few coffee places, many fruit stands, discount stores, a pharmacy, two drycleaners (laundrymat) a takeaway pizza place, one estate agency and a quite big Iceland (supermarket). A short walk away, there is Homebase (DIY store) joined with Argos. No proper restaurants nearby, so this is what is mostly missing. And also well known stores such as Boots, Superdrugs, Wilko, etc. The area looks poor because of the presence of many cheap places to eat (generally selling Arabic food and fried chicken), only takeaway.
Quiet and nice to live.

Because East Acton is a conservation are all of the houses give it a kind of village feel.
