A little gem located in the heart of Acton in Poet's Corner and a lovely place to go for a bite to eat - great selection of food and very tasty. The Sunday lunch is AMAZING! Really nice paved garden out front with lots of plants and they let dogs in too!

Arguably one of Ealing borough's most unique venues. Circus themed, they have circus performances on Friday and Saturday evenings and they even have their own microbrewery onsite. Definitely one of the best beer gardens in London and a lively, fun place to go for a few drinks after a long week!

I love Acton because it has a very friendly mixed community. The new leisure centre and swimming pool is great. A New John Lloyd gym and tennis club has just opened. There are great parks - Gunnesbury park is fabulous and Acton Park has tennis courts and a great children's play area. Transport links are excellent. The overground from Acton Central links up with the District, Jubilee and Bakerloo underground stations. Trains from Acton Central go from Richmond to Stratford through North London. Acton Main line station trains go from Heathrow to Paddington and will soon have the addition of the new Elizabeth line. Also there are 3 central line stations (East, West and North Acton), and Acton Town has the Piccadilly line station for direct trains to Heathrow airport. Churchfield Road has many cafes and restaurants. Indian, Greek, Japanese etc. There is a new Italian cafe and deli. There is also a new Italian restaurant on Acton high street which is good. The George and Dragon Pub is a bit of a hipster pub which brews its own beer and has live music. Acton is a stones throw again from Chiswick where there are many excellent restaurants. It is also 6 minutes by car to White City Westfield Shopping centre, with a newly opened John Lewis Department Store.
I love Acton because of its diverse communities and down-to-earth, vibrant atmosphere.
Acton is a friendly neighbourhood with a great family feel. Plenty of shops and exercise facilities to suit everyone!
There is a great sense of community here with every amenity you could hope for. It is under rated and developing in a great way, with transport and small boutiques as opposed to big chain stores. It's close to some of London's great parks and has a roster of wonderful gesture pubs within easy distance. Great neighbourhood feel.
Green and very quiet residential streets,the area is favoured by artists and media, so I love most of my neighbours! The family size 3-4 bedroom properties are much bigger than in Chiswick and much more appealing in their Georgian style with warm yellow brickwork.

Acton is a district of west London, located in the London Borough of Ealing. Acton means "oak farm" or "farm by oak trees", and is derived from the Anglo-Saxon 'ac' (oak) and 'tun' (farm). Originally an ancient village (mentioned in the Domesday Book), as London expanded, Acton became absorbed into the city. Nowadays, Acton lies predominantly in the London Borough of Ealing, although some of East Acton lies within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and a small portion of South Acton within the London Borough of Hounslow. Acton is home to more railway stations than any other area of London; seven stations in the locality feature Acton in their name. Central Acton lies on the former main road between London and Oxford (the Uxbridge Road) and several inns along it date back several centuries as stopping places for travellers. Nowadays, the principal route linking London and Oxford (the A40 dual carriageway) bypasses central Acton, but passes through North Acton.
