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.
The atmosphere is generally very pleasant and I feel safe when out and about most of the time.
The local area is fairly prosperous, and is good for families and commuters looking for good access to Central London. The atmosphere is generally very pleasant and I feel safe when out and about most of the time.
Transport is very good in the area, with tube links via the District, Piccadilly, and Central lines, and also London Overground and National Rail into and out of Paddington Station. Buses are frequent, and the roads are generally pretty efficient. Traffic can easily grind to a halt when there are stoppages on the North Circular, A40, or A4 routes, and local traffic has been severely affected by the closure to traffic of Hammersmith Bridge. I do not cycle, and would not be tempted by local cycle routes, which do not seem very safe to me.
My street has a very suburban feel, comprised of semi detached houses. Most residents are either families or older people and the area is fairly quiet, a bit away from the shops and restaurants. Some noise from the A40 at the far end of the road, but not too disturbing.
Acton and Chiswick have a good range of both Local and Chain Stores, and a fine range of neighbourhood restaurants. The Chiswick High Road and Churchfield Road areas are noteworthy here. Nice parks include Chiswick and Acton Parks, and the Dukes Meadows Riverside area is also popular. There are a variety of sports centres, including swimming pools and gyms, which are popular locally. Would be great to have a local cinema, as the nearest are in Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith, and Park Royal. Altogether, this is a great place to live.
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.
Good transport links via central and piccadilly line, bus links are regular and reliable.

I most like the fact we are in an area slightly cheaper than zone 1 & 2 so rent is just that little bit more affordable.

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