Things to see and do in Ealing
There are lots of green spaces across the area, including Northdale Fields, Walpole Park and Dean Gardens. Brent Valley Park is a real highlight with its quiet atmosphere and scenic nature trails. Gunnersbury Park, meanwhile, forms part of the borough’s south east border and also plays host to an interesting local history museum. Then there are the Wormwood Scrubs to the east.
From dog walks through Willow Tree Open Space to trips to Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery, you can also visit places like the London Transport Museum Depot. Dinosaur Escape Adventure Golf and Oxygen Freejumping Trampoline Park are great for the kids, while there are plenty of golf courses across the borough when it’s time to work on your swing.
Perhaps you can steal a few hours at the golf club while your little ones are at one of Ealing’s many excellent schools. Christ the Saviour CofE is in the town of Ealing itself, while Three Bridges Primary caters for children in Southall and Gifford Primary is just south of Northolt. All these primaries are rated as outstanding by Ofsted, along with Acton’s Ark Priory Primary Academy and Holy Family Catholic Primary.
Kids in Acton can move on to Twyford Church of England High School or the Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls, both outstanding according to the education board. The same goes for Drayton Manor High School, Greenford High School and Villiers High School in Southall.
Ealing transport links
Ealing is very well stocked when it comes to public transport links. As well as an array of local bus services, there are plenty of train and Tube stations across the borough. The south east is best for Underground services on the District and Piccadilly lines, while the Central line also stops at West Acton before heading to the north west of the borough and places like Perivale, Greenford and Northolt.
There are also Overground services, while the new Crossrail links make Ealing an even more attractive proposition for getting across London. The M4 also passes just to the south of the borough, while the northern A40 gives you great access to the M40 and M25.
