Acton

Your All In London guide to Acton

Situated in the London Borough of Ealing, this region boasts an impressive total of seven railways, making it one of the most accessible parts of London! Historically, Acton was an ancient village; more recently, however, as London became bigger and expanded it got swallowed up, losing its identity and becoming a region within the capital city. In fact, Acton only became part of Ealing in 1965 and was formerly considered to be located in Middlesex.

Antipodean residents seem to have found a home in Acton, resulting in the opening of many South African and Australian-themed pubs. Formerly an important industrial centre, Acton is now residential, with mostly purpose-built or modern constructions, many of which are flatshares; there are a few notable Victorian buildings however, mostly on the high street, which also has the odd restaurant, ubiquitous fast food outlets, supermarkets and a market selling food, clothing, arts and crafts on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Acton Park provides further recreation to the locals of this quiet area, which is home to actress Emilia Fox and author Toby Young.
