The Mill Hill Conservation area is a gem in the middle of an urban area.

I love the trees and period feel and peacefulness of the immediate area coupled with the range of amenities. The speed of development is amazing with numerous flats popping up nearby and crossrail set to arrive soon this is an area on the up and can only get more upmarket. There are a lot of schools and playground in the area so great for kids. The local Mill Hill gardens is a hidden gem!

Transport

Acton Town tube gets you into the centre of town in 20 minutes or out to Heathrow very quickly so it's a great area for a pilot or air steward! There are a good range of local buses serving local areas. And at some point in the near future when the delays subside, crossrail will serve Acton Mainline.

The Mill Hill Conservation area is a gem in the middle of an urban area. The lovely period properties, wide tree-lined streets and the original wall and gates make you feel like you've stepped into the turn of the twentieth century. Unfortunately, the bird poo on your car roof if you park under a tree bring you right back! This is a really calm and tranquil haven in a busy urban area which gives you the amenities of the city with a local village feel. Parking is available through Council permits which are surprisingly affordable.

Amenities

Between the Vale, Acton Central, Ealing and next Acton Town tube, there are a wide range of eateries within walking distance catering for all tastes. If you want to go upmarket, then venture slightly further to Chiswick and you won't be disappointed. Groceries are well covered by a number of smaller local stores dotted around and for tbe big shop, you have Morrisons and the newly opened a Iceland and Lidl next door. There is a real lack of good pubs in this area. You have to travel a bit further to Chiswick and beyond for this. There are a few options like The Aeronaut (except on Friday and Saturday nights when it turns into bedlam - good if you're young and don't mind sacrificing your weekend to a hangover) and the George & Dragon for a more chilled out experience. If you're willing to walk 15-20 minutes then you have Ealing Common and Acton Park which are both great open spaces. There are other smaller patches here and there more locally.

Having lived in a few places in London, this is by far the best that I've lived in so far where a sense of security is concerned,

I think that my local area is great - a place really suitable for pets, families and children. It's very residential. Having lived in a few places in London, this is by far the best that I've lived in so far where a sense of security is concerned, and the area offers so much potential in the way of entertaining guests at nearby bars and restaurants, allowing yourself the chance to budget by shopping cheaper at budget supermarkets, and leisure and health facilities in the form of nearby gyms and green spaces.

Transport

West Acton and Ealing Common tube stations are both approx a 10/15 minute walk away from my location. Because of this, it makes travelling on the district/picadilly and central line super convenient. There are also a good amount of buses from what I can see, though I tend to use the tube more. West Acton tube station has a toilet in (Which is fantastic for those post-night out tubes!). These tubes do not have lift facilities, so access may be harder for some people. I think the transport choices here are fantastic. If you go to Ealing Broadway (20ish minute walk), you can also catch some trains to the rest of the UK!

Community

I live on a very quiet street and I honestly couldn't fault it at all. From what I've seen seeing neighbours, there are a lot of families and some couples, but no disruption. As it's a shared area, the recycling bin often becomes too full, but other than that we've never had any problems with the disposal of general waste. Unfortuntately, we do live RIGHT next to two tube/train lines, but this isn't as annoying as you'd think. Guests who are new to the area may find it to disrupt their sleep, but having lived here for a while now (and with double glazing on the windows..!) I sleep straight through it. It's a bit annoying when you're on a zoom call with work however and a train passes by!

Amenities

I'm very fortunate to live between Ealing and Acton. Because of this, it's great having the two different areas to go to - Ealing is fantastic and has a lot more high street Chains (JD Sports, a large Boots, Primark, Morrisons, M&S) and also has a great range of restaurants and bars available, and to me, seems like the main shopping district of the area. Acton, while smaller, has its own benefits of having a Morrisons, Superdrug, Iceland, Wilkinsons and a Lidls, allowing people nearby the opportunity to purchase from more affordable stores. There are also some restaurants in Acton, but it seems to be mostly takeaways. I'd say Ealing would be a 'fancier' place to go to than Acton, but I much prefer going in to Acton due to the value of the shops there! I don't feel like much is missing from the area.
