Ealing Borough Guide

Your All In London guide to Ealing

The third largest of London's boroughs with a population of 300,000 and the 4th most ethnically diverse borough in the country in terms of sheer numbers, Ealing is said to be one of the prettiest of West London's areas. With Central & Piccadilly Line (from Heathrow) tube links and mainline rail links to Paddington, the borough acts as a key commuter transport hub into central London.

Ealing is a densely populated outer London borough covering a total area of 55 square kilometres to the west of the city centre. The borough is a relatively prosperous one but is a community of sharp contrasts with pockets of poverty existing alongside this wealth. There are seven principal town centres acting as hubs in the borough. These vary from green and spacious areas such as Ealing Common, to more built-up urban areas such as Acton. Ealing is the fourth most ethnically diverse area in the country with over 100 languages spoken, and is home to the largest Sikh population outside India and a large Polish community.
