Ealing was once a rural village. But, as London began to sprawl uncontrollably, the area was gobbled up and as of 1965 it officially became part of Greater London. Soon that connection will be even stronger, thanks to a new speedy 11-minute journey into central London on the Elizabeth Line

While nearby Acton and Chiswick have a villagey feel, Ealing itself is slightly more urban, in part due to Ealing Broadway and its shopping centre. Still, there’s a lot of leafy greenery to be enjoyed in both Gunnersbury Park and Walpole Park, the latter of which is also the home of the Pitzhanger Manor House & Gallery. If you get peckish, check out local Polish favourite Café Grove for delicious, authentic Eastern European flavours, or pop into one of the area’s other restaurants. All that eating is thirsty work, and the area boasts numerous pubs where you can rest up and grab a drink, too.
