The local area guide to living in Ealing
Ealing, located around 10 miles west of Central London, is a varied borough, with different areas catering to different tastes. The Haymills estate, situated to the west, is filled with striking mock Tudor houses, while in the centre, Haven Green hosts an array of charming cottages. Meanwhile, in the east, Montpelier displays streets full of grand detached villas.
One of the borough’s most famous talking points is its film studio – the oldest in the world – but there is a rich variety of other cultural and leisure activities around the area. Cafes, bistros and green spaces abound and cater to an active local community. Rather curiously, the Ealing area doesn’t in fact have any cinemas at the moment, although one is scheduled for completion in 2018.
Over the decades, Ealing has continually asserted itself as a cultural capital of both London and England at large. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones both met Brian Jones at the Ealing Jazz Club, before later meeting their drummer, Charlie Watts in Greenford at the railway pub. Alongside its musical history, it hosts a variety of festivals and events year round, has several renowned sports teams, and remains central to the UK film industry.
