It is a safe area for pets and children and I would say it is upmarket.

I like the proximity to shops and various modes of transport. I like the parks and open spaces and that they are well maintained. The atmosphere is one of suburbia and freindliness on the whole. A community vibe as we have street parties in the summer. It is a safe area for pets and children and I would say it is upmarket.

Transport

Th transport links are really very good and one of the main reasons I moved to this area. There are plenty of regular buses taking you all over the borough and much further into and out of london. There is the West Ealing to Paddington rail line taking you into central london and the Heathrow connect taking you to the airport. if you don’t fancy the train there is the Piccadilly line tube taking you to the airport or into town for a bit of shopping. It can get very busy during rush hour especially with more people taking to their cars during the coronavirus pandemic but I rarely encounter long traffic jams. Soon we will have cross rail taking you across London much quicker than any other mode of transport.

Community

I have a residents parking permit and find this greatly helps the parking situation. However it only covers 10-11am and 3-4pm on weekdays and this is problematic on Fridays and religious days. I live near a Hindu Temple which has a big weekly service on Fridays and this attracts a large amount of people from outside of the local area. This can be arduous when you are looking to park close to home after getting back from the supermarket with a large shop. Bin collection is reliable and street noise is kept down due to considerate neighbours. There is a great community vibe on my street with couples and families young and old. The street is made up of residents and renters and there are some students in a HMO but they are polite and respect the local residents.

Amenities

There are a wide variety of local shops, from a local bakery, to lots of coffee shops to the usual big supermarkets such as Waitrose, Tesco’s, Sainsburys, Morrisons and a Co-op. West ealing has fruits shops offering fresh fruit and fish. There are also lots of nearby takeaways and restaurants to enjoy as well as lively pubs. Walpole and Lammas parks are well looked after large green spaces and are part of the Ealing Half Marathon route which is held every September. Dean gardens is a smaller local park. I would love to see a local cinema and hopefully this will be coming soon.

incredibly safe for young people to walk around and yet simultaneously remain close to home.

The area has excellent primary and High schools and Northfields Avenue aswell as Pitshanger Lane (Which previously won High street of the year ) are other areas within the Borough with great local shops and restaurants where many families live. Pitshanger Lane is mainly inhabited by families as is Northfields Avenue and the surrounding streets and is incredibly safe for young people to walk around and yet simultaneously remain close to home.

Transport

Ealing has various tube stations,Ealing Broadway on the Central and District lines ,South Ealing ,Ealing Common,North Ealing and Northfields on the Picadilly line and West Ealing and Ealing Broadway which will accommodate the Elizabeth line and also has links to Heathrow Airport. Ealing Broadway also has a fast train to Paddington aswell as overground trains to Reading and beyond. London buses run throughout the borough and there are plenty of cycle lanes . There is a Black taxi rank outside Ealing Broadway station and the Borough has recently launched a new scheme called Slide where a mini bus will pick you up and drop you off within the centre of the Borough for a small fee and freedom pass holders can use this service for free.

Community

My street is incredibly quiet and is inhabited by both owner occupied flats and housers aswell as rented flats .My street is mainly inhabited by families and couples and is a three minute walk from beautiful Walpole Park. My street requires a permit from 10 to 11 am and 3 to 4 pm but this can be obtained easily from Ealing Council and can then be accessed via the Pay by phone app making it incredibly easy for you to pay the small fee for guests/contractors visiting your property during these times. The Borough of Ealing provides waste and recycling bins for residents and these are collected on alternate weeks.You can also obtain a green bin for garden waste for a small annual fee and this is collected fortnightly. My street is also a five minute walk from Lamas Park to the south and all the shops at West Ealing to the West.Ealing Broadway with all its shops and restaurants is a ten minute walk through Walpole Park or you can also walk to it via the streets around the parks perimeter. South Ealing Station is a fifteen minute walk with direct underground trains to Heathrow and West Ealing is a fifteen minute walk to the West with TFL trains taking fifteen minutes to Heathrow.

Amenities

Ealing’s historical name was Queen of the suburbs and it truly is! Ealing is one of the greenest boroughs in London and is characterised by a plethora of tree lined streets and multiple parks including Walpole Park at the centre which boasts a duck pond,cafe,children’s play area ,cafe and restaurant.Walpole park also holds both The Ealing Jazz and comedy festivals every summer. Ealing is also the home of Ealing film studios which was visited in the recent past by the Duchess of Cambridge . Ealing has fabulous transport links and is on the Central,District and Piccadilly lines and will soon herald the advent of Cross rail enabling passengers to reach Central London’s Bond Street in approximately 12 minutes. Ealing has a multitude of restaurants from Italian to Vietnamese to Middle Eastern . I love living in Ealing and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!

There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.

Lack of cohesion and the police are disgraceful

Transport

The bus routes are good connecting Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush and surrounding areas. There are plenty of transport links

Community

Amenities are available 24/7. There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.

Amenities

There are numerous parks, the lido, cafes and hairdressers. The area is well served by Sainsbury’s and Waitrose supermarkets - with Jacobs passage a little -known walkway over the railway tracks connecting the shop and high street- and transport links are good into Central London and HS2 will boost the convenience further still. However, West Ealing shopping is not what it used to be these days with Halifax bank, M&S, Woolworths, MarkOne, BHS and indoor market all closed now. There is a nice Japanese restaurant, Haru and modernised Salvation Army hall off the main high street. There’s a popular mosque and large church. There are traditional barrow boys at fruit, veg and flowers stalls still and nowadays there’s a farmers market on Saturdays also.
