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!
It’s very easy to spend time with your friends as there are so many places to eat for groups or couples.
What I love about the area is that there is always something to do. It’s very easy to spend time with your friends as there are so many places to eat for groups or couples. It’s quite a lively area . Elderly ones, families, couples and single people There is always something For us. It is getting pretty trendy with bigger brand shops coming in slowly. Once we get the cross rail there will be so many possibilities. I would say it’s pretty safe and there is a lot of lighting even on smaller roads.
It’s a little walk to Ealing station where you have rail and underground. Let’s say 5-10 min walk. It’s great if you want to get to central London quickly. Great for commuters as there are regular train service. They are creating new cycles lanes so it’s a little annoying at the moment but soon it will be safe for all. There are a range of buses that will take you to Uxbridge or Harrow. No problems at night there are plenty of night buses.
It’s a little tricky when you want to have family over as the parking is a little expensive for guests. There is a university Down the road so great if your a student. Near the university you also have little cafes, petrol station with a small Sainsbury’s and also many pubs. There not too much noise as one doesn’t live on the main road but it can get a little busy when people want to do their shopping. Bin collections are satisfactory.
You have everything at your doorstep. Not only do you have food shops like Tesco and morrinson but there are so many cafes, clothes shops to your hearts content. There is also llamas park is absolutely stunning in the summer. Perfect for families. There are varieties of restaurants from different parts of the world so you will never be bored of Choice.
There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.
Lack of cohesion and the police are disgraceful
The bus routes are good connecting Uxbridge to Shepherds Bush and surrounding areas. There are plenty of transport links
Amenities are available 24/7. There has been a lot of redevelopment which has been extremely disruptive.
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.
Lovely parks near by, great for children and pets.
