Moving to London’s West Side
London’s west neighborhoods include some iconic (and touristed) areas like Westminster, the West End theatre district, Kensington, and Notting Hill, but those considering houses in London’s suburbs would do well considering Ealing.
Known as the “Queen of the Suburbs,” aside from being home to some of the world’s oldest film studios, Ealing is very residential with nice, clean, and safe streets conducive to raising a family. About 30 minutes from the city center by tube, it makes for a decent commute as well as compromise between quiet living and having access to London’s major action when one wants it. And located closer to Heathrow Airport, it’s convenient for air travel. With Ealing Common, Walpole, Gunnersbury, and other parks nearby, Ealing also enjoys a lot of green space while still having ample access to necessary amenities and a nice assortment of shops and restaurants. Overall, it offers a pleasant quality of life—and an affordable one, rendering Ealing apartments a great value.
Depending on where your search for these Ealing apartments takes you, any one of a few area Underground stations could be closest. Ealing Broadway is fairly central and services the District and Central lines, and North and South Ealing, Ealing Common, and Northfields are all on the Piccadilly line (which travels directly to Heathrow). Ealing Common is also on the District line, and Ealing Broadway and West Ealing rail stations both service National Rail trains. Docking stations for renting Barclays bikes aren’t available this far west, but, as another alternative to trains, there are nearly 20 different bus routes servicing the entire area.
Finding Ealing Apartments
If Ealing meets your fancy, then because London estate agents are so localized in their listings, you’ll need to approach those based in the Ealing area. It’s also imperative to work through several of them because MLS isn’t used in the London rentals market, which means their respective listings remain independent—they don’t share them with each other, with the exception of the occasional split-commission some might agree to.
