Ealing Area Guide
Walk down tree-lined streets of double-fronted Edwardian houses with gravel drives and it is easy to see why Ealing is known as the “Queen of Suburbs”.
Families come for the schools and the easy commute, which, with the arrival of the Elizabeth line, will get easier still. Now Ealing is getting even better, with the town centre in the middle of a radical makeover.
There have also been improvements to Ealing Broadway shopping centre, while Ealing Broadway station is getting a major facelift ahead of the opening of the Elizabeth line.
The Elizabeth line will stop at Ealing Broadway, West Ealing and Hanwell, slashing commuting times. Ealing Broadway is on the Central and District lines; Ealing Common is on the District and Piccadilly lines; North Ealing, Park Royal, South Ealing and Northfields are on the Piccadilly line; Hanger Lane and West Acton are on the Central line.
Ealing Broadway to Paddington trains take about 10 minutes; a few minutes more from West Ealing, Drayton Green and Castle Bar Park. All stations are in Zone 3 except for Drayton Green and Castle Bar Park in Zone 4. A Zone 3 travelcard.
Walpole Park in the town centre is undergoing a restoration alongside Pitzhanger Manor House. Nearby Lammas Park has tennis courts, a bowling green, croquet pitch and playground. Pitshanger Park in north Ealing has the River Brent running through it and the Ealing Golf Club.
