Ealing: a bright future for this West London neighbourhood

The lively and family-oriented neighbourhood of Ealing is located in the North-West part of London, between Wembley at the North and Chiswick at the South. As real estate prices in zone 1 and 2 have risen since 2008 crisis, Ealing is now very famous for British and international families for its high-quality life and its proximity from the London city centre.

According to local residents, Ealing offers the cosmopolite advantages of London and the charming and rural British way-of-life.  Thanks to a very active community, it is quite easy to get integrated in this neighbourhood

Shops and entertainment are located around Ealing Broadway. Don’t miss the excellent French bakery, Yvon’s Artisan Pâtissier, which offers amazing French pastries.

The area provides a large choice of schools: English-speaking private and state schools, as well as reputable international schools.

Transport

Ealing is well-connected through the underground (zone 3) from Ealing Broadway and Ealing Common tube stations. The area also beneficiates from the railway, serving Hanwell, West Ealing and Ealing Broadway train stations towards Paddington train station (11 minutes).
