ALL ABOUT EALING BROADWAY
What makes Ealing Broadway so outstanding is that it offers a lifestyle that combines convenience with a sense of oasis and community. A short walk from Ealing Broadway Station will take you to Walpole Park, which hosts the Ealing Summer Festival and is where you’ll find Pitzhanger Manor House & Gallery.
Ealing is well known for its film studios, which are the oldest in the world and are known especially for the Ealing comedies, including Kind Hearts and Coronets, Passport to Pimlico, The Ladykillers and The Lavender Hill Mob. The studios were taken over by the BBC in 1955, with one consequence being that Ealing locations appeared in television programmes including Doctor Who (notably within an iconic 1970 sequence in which deadly shop mannequins menaced local residents) to Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Most recently, these studios have again been used for making films, including Notting Hill and The Importance of Being Earnest. (source Wikipedia)
Ealing has a theatre on Mattock Lane, The Questors Theatre, which is one of the largest community theatres in Europe, with a membership of around 1,500, of whom around 600 are actively involved in production.
You will also have plenty of choices for shopping and dining as well as transport links on your doorstep. These include future Crossrail, Central Line, District Line, National Rail and Heathrow Express. Walking towards the common will bring you to Ealing Common Station, giving you access to the Piccadilly line, taking you into the heart of London as well as Heathrow Airport.
Ealing Broadway falls in the catchment areas for a number of good private and state schools in Ealing, such as Notting Hill, Ealing High School, Twyford CofE High School, St. Benedicts School, Christ The Saviour Primary School and Montpelier Primary School.
