Your All In London guide to Ealing

There are suggestions that Ealing has been inhabited for more than 7,000 years as there is evidence of a small settlement in the forested region of West London. In 1599, the earliest English census recorded 85 houses in Ealing.

Once known as the “queen of suburbs” due to its clean streets and tranquillity compared to inner London, Ealing is most famous for being home to Ealing Studios, where the Ealing Comedies were made in the 1950s. Unbelievably, despite this cinematic heritage there is not a single cinema in the area, what it does have in abundance however are shops, courtesy of the indoor Broadway Centre, restaurants and pubs; there are also fair few Australian bars catering to the local antipodean community. Walpole Park hosts the Ealing Jazz Festival as well as similar events for blues, comedy, opera and beer which attract visitors from other areas in the summer.

Ealing is ideal for those wanting easy access to the West of London as well as being close to the M4 and M40 motorways and other transport links.
