Ealing is referred to as the 'queen of the suburbs', and it's easy to see why. It's home to a diverse community, including many filmmakers and musicians. Iconic British films have been made at the famous Ealing studios, and every summer, Walpole Park plays host to comedy, blues and jazz festivals.
Ealing is full of interesting independent shops, cafes and quality restaurants offering an array of cuisines. There are also some very good schools and plenty of parks. The transport links are impressive too: you can be in Central London in minutes via underground. What's more, the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) will transform travel times from December 2019. You'll be able to get to Bond Street in 11 minutes, Liverpool Street in 18 minutes, and Heathrow in 15 minutes.
As a result, some stunning new apartment developments are taking shape here. Walpole Court offers 34 one-, two- and three-bed apartments, and Dickens Yard is creating a new urban quarter, with its combination of residential and leisure spaces.
