If you’re a couple or family looking for a fantastic area of London to call home, you can’t go wrong with Ealing W5. This leafy suburb in West London has it all – great amenities, excellent transport links, beautiful parks and green spaces, and a real community feel. Here are just a few of the reasons why Ealing W5 should be at the top of your list.

Incredible Amenities on Your Doorstep

One of the biggest draws of Ealing is the incredible array of shops, restaurants, cafes and other amenities right on your doorstep. Ealing Broadway is the central hub, with major retail stores, supermarkets, a shopping mall and a dizzying choice of places to eat and drink. Whether you want to grab a delicious curry, sip craft beers at a trendy bar, or get all your grocery shopping done – it’s all within walking distance. There are also plenty of community facilities like libraries, gyms, cinemas and theatres. For families, the amenities are second to none.

Excellent Transport Connections

Despite having a lovely village feel, Ealing is extremely well-connected to the rest of London and beyond. Multiple tube lines (Central, District, Elizabeth) run through Ealing Broadway station, whisking you into Central London in around 30 minutes. The trains and London Overground also run services to Paddington and the west. And major roads like the A40 and M4 mean you can easily jump in the car to get out to the countryside or to Heathrow Airport. Whether commuting to work or visiting tourist sights, the transport is a massive plus.

Abundance of Green Spaces

Even though Ealing feels very urban and lively, you’re never too far from beautiful green spaces. Walpole Park right in the center has playgrounds, large grassy areas and lovely walks around the park’s ponds. The stunning Gunnersbury Park is on the border and has playing fields, an outdoor gym, two mansions and beautiful gardens. Ealing is also surrounded by other large parks like Acton Park, Cleveland Park and Northfields Recreation ground. For families, having these outdoor spaces to enjoy some nature is so valuable.

Real Sense of Community

Behind Ealing’s urban exterior lies a true sense of community that gives the area a lovely village-like vibe. The neighborhoods and streets feel friendly and there are lots of community groups, social clubs and volunteering opportunities to get involved with. The local schools are also excellent, with several “Outstanding” rated primaries and Ofsted ranking many of the secondary schools as “Good” too. Whether you’re a couple looking to start a family or moved with kids, the strong community makes Ealing really feel like home.
