Prime Location Ealing Area Guide
The borough is about ten miles west of central London and is famous for its film studios - the oldest in the world. Despite a reputation for being nice-but-dull, Ealing has a strong local community who love to spend their free time and disposable incomes in the cafes, bistros and green spaces of charming Ealing Green and historic Pitshanger Manor.
There are plenty of lovely places to settle across the borough. There are cute cottages in central Haven Green and the northern Brentham estate, and grand detached villas of Castlebar to the west and Montpelier to the east. For something a bit different, explore the Modernist and mock Tudor houses of the western Haymills estate.
Ealing’s population is about 340,000. Places like Ealing Broadway, Hanger Lane, South Ealing and Northfields are mostly White British.
Meanwhile, the rest of the borough - areas like Greenford, Northolt and Acton are more diverse. There's quite a big Japanese community because of the Japanese school in West Acton.
Ealing has a lot of schools - The state-run schools perform consistently well in Ofsted reports, as do the independents.
Elthorne Park, Drayton Manor, Avenue House School, St Benedict's School, St Augstine's Priory and Notting Hill & Ealing High School all have good reputations.
All roads (or rather rails) lead to Ealing Broadway. So you'll usually get a seat if you're taking the half hour commute to the centre of London on either the Piccadilly or District line.
There are a lot of tube and overland stations, as well as a large number of bus routes. Ealing is also due to be part of Crossrail sometime in the coming years.
Amenities and shopping
There is the Broadway shopping centre for many large chain stores, but head to Ealing Green or Pitshanger Lane for a much more exciting retail experience. The latter still has a fishmonger, greengrocer and bakers, as well as several independent book and antique shops.
There are some nice pubs and a nightclub with a particularly famous past. The Red Room is the modern day incarnation of the original Ealing Jazz Club, known as the infamous meeting place for Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones in 1962. Ealing has a strong tradition of festivals and you'll struggle to find a consecutive summer weekend that isn't devoted to celebrating jazz, blues, opera, beer or comedy.
