What locals say about Ealing

  1. It has everything you need on your doorstep without the need to go into central London. There are always events happening too, including festivals every summer.

  2. Ealing is a great location. There's loads of green space and everything is nearby!

  3. Ealing is a leafy, comfy, laid-back adornment to London life. You're never too far from a good coffee house or restaurant and there's lots of choice for socialising. You have close links to the M4 and good transport options if commuting further in to the city.

  4. Ealing is a mix of modern and countryside ambience. Outside the train station you can see a lot of shopping malls, restaurants and cafes, but if you walk a bit further inside, the picture changes to rows of Victorian houses. I've been told that these houses are one of the most expensive in the Greater London area. There is lots of greenery around and all amenities almost at your doorstep. On its western side are a number of beautiful brick houses of the 18th and early 19th century – if I had the money this is probably where I would choose to live in Ealing! There are large Irish pubs, in case you’re in need of liquid refreshment. Ealing is a strong, growing place with important, influential residents and many local events also take place at Ealing Town Hall, including concerts, photography exhibitions and meetings of local societies. To the south lies Ealing Film Studios, again the subject of another tip. Although I don't know much about them, it seems that a lot of films were produced at Ealing Studios – I didn't go inside (I don’t even know if this is possible but there was no sign outside that they are open to the public) so on a lovely Saturday morning we just took a picture from outside. Walpole Park is a beautiful park where people go for a picnic, play football, jogging etc. Me and my hubby spend some time watching many squirrels passing by. There is also a lovely pond and a cute children’s play area, but most of the parks are spacious green areas, where people play football. We loved the paths that are lined with trees and doing exercise in the fresh air. By the way, every July the park hosts the Ealing Jazz Festival that must be great (and almost free!) with hundreds of people going there and enjoying the events, like theatrical plays, opera etc.

About Ealing

Ealing is a district in west London, located in the London Borough of Ealing. It is situated 7.7 miles (12.4 km) west of Charing Cross. The area is often referred to as the "Queen of the Suburbs". Ealing has a longstanding Irish community. This is particularly visible through the number of Irish pubs in the borough and the popularity of Gaelic games within the community. County flags for example, can be seen flown on the outside or hung inside of various pubs in the area. It was during the Victorian period that Ealing became a town. This meant that roads had to be built, drainage provided, and schools and public buildings erected. The man responsible for much of all this was Charles Jones, Borough Surveyor from 1863–1913. He planted the horse chestnut trees on Ealing Common and designed the Town Hall, both the present one and the older structure which is now a bank (on the Mall). Ealing Broadway became a major shopping centre.
