About the area
Ealing is one of West London's prettiest boroughs. Every year in August, it hosts Britain's largest free jazz festival. It features a wide variety of bands performing during the lunchtime and evening in Walpole Park. Ealing is the shopper's paradise, with everything from major chains to specialist boutiques, an antiques and craft market, farmers' market and the capital's only remaining agricultural market in Southall Park. Packed with historic buildings and heritage sites, Ealing is home to Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery, the former country home of Sir John Soane, architect of the Bank of England. The attraction contains an extensive display of Martinware pottery and is being restored to its original splendour. Additionally, the Grand Union Canal, opened in 1798 to link the Midlands with London, runs right through the borough. Now used for leisure purposes, visitors can enjoy a stroll along the canal.
Before Ealing became one of the London’s boroughs, it used to be a rural village. Today, it is a multi-national area with a rich history. In particular, it is famous for the Ealing Studios, one of the oldest in the whole world. Since 1938, it has created a great number of world-famous British comedies, for example, Hue and Cry (1947).
As of the local architecture, Ealing has many terraced, detached, and semi-detached houses that sink in the abundance of green trees.
The area can boast of Ealing Broadway. It is a famous shopping destination for many Londoners. There are also many other trendy restaurants, bars, and pubs within the area.
