Ealing Broadway

The Multicultural Queen of the suburbs

The eclectic borough of Ealing comprises seven towns – each of them has a different feel and personality. Here we are going to focus on Ealing Broadway and all the amenities which are easily available from there by foot or public transport.

Ealing Broadway is situated in West-London, with Brentford and Chiswick to the South and Wembley to the North.

The area is popular with young professionals and families, due to the excellent public transport links towards the City. This charm will be further enhanced with the arrival of the Crossrail in 2018, cutting existing journey times to a minimum.

Ealing is a truly diverse place to live: you can hear roughly 100 different languages spoken in the streets! Apart from the British, the most represented nationalities are the Irish and Polish – many of them living here for generations. Japanese and Indian families settle here as well.

Thanks to Ealing Studios, the area is a common filming location for suburban-themed scenes.
