About Ealing

Ealing, located in West London, is a 12.1 km district. It has changed its name over the centuries several times and has been known as Zelling, Ealing and Yelling before being named Ealing in the 19th century.

The area comprises four parts: West Ealing, South Ealing, Ealing Common, and Ealing Broadway. Despite having relatively higher house prices in London, (£721.302 for average property price), Ealing still attracts the house owners and people looking for a living in London because of its excellent transport connections, large green spaces and a great mix of high-quality properties.

When you compare the house prices with those of Camden, Islington and Hammersmith, they are significantly more affordable for people looking for a living in Ealing.

Ealing is one of London’s most culturally diverse boroughs, where more than 100 languages are spoken. It also should be noted that Ealing is known for its lower crime rates in comparison with the other boroughs, and more than 95% of the residents consider the neighbourhoods they live in safe.

It is an excellent mix of countryside and modern ambience. There are bars, cafes, pubs and shopping centres with high street retail brands. If you are a nature enthusiast, Ealing has several choices of parks and allotments. Walpole Park is a great example of green open spaces in the borough. In the park, you can see a children’s playground, a beautiful café and two ponds. 

Through Ealing Broadway Stations, we can see several underground tube lines like District, Central, and Picadilly. There are 13 of these tube stations, sitting in zones from 3 to 5. The distance from London Paddington is 15 minutes. Also, there are a number of train stations on the Great Western Railway lines and Overground Lines.   

Overall, it’s one of the most brilliant places to live and work in London and has a little something for everyone, whether you are a student, young professional, or a couple looking for a slice of living in West London.
