What locals say about W5

  1. A peaceful part of London with great transport links to anywhere you need to go.

  2. It really has a nice community feel. The people are lovely. It also gives easy access to Ealing Broadway for the excellent shops and restaurants.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. I love South Ealing because it's a beautiful area, with loads of different things to do. It's easy to get to places, as there is a train station very close and many different bus stops

  7. 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.
