Watermans is to West London what the National Theatre is to Central London; theatre, independent cinema and a great children's theatre.

Time is in a lovely little bubble of shops along the River Brent. Lots of nice wraps and salads, great brunch options and with a great view as a bonus! Make sure you sit by the many windows.

A huge range of pretty flowers, homeware and a fish store with some incredible breeds of fish. If you're tired of looking at all of that, you can stop and have a scone and a cup of tea - beautiful!

One of the few remaining record shops. They have a great selection of original vinyl from the 1950s to 1980s all in great condition. The shop has been in Ealing since 1983 and always has a great selection, with new finds every time I've been in there.

This family run pizza restaurant is the best pizza outside of Italy, in my view. I always take my friends and family here when they come for a visit and they absolutely love it. The service is so welcoming and the stonebaked pizzas are so tasty. A taste of Italy in South Ealing. Amazing!

Delicious food and a quirky interior makes this gastro pub a great choice every time. Grab a private booth, lounge on a sofa or hide up on the mezzanine.

There is no better place than Oliver's in Kew for a guilt free treat! (They have guilty ones too if that's what you are after...)
