The 18th Century Temple in Gunnersbury Park

Vibrantly diverse Acton sits between Ealing and Chiswick in west London, seven miles from the city centre.

With no less than seven stations in and around the district, it’s a favourite with commuters and newcomers to London and despite some pockets of serious deprivation, there’s a lot going on.

The area around the High Street and Churchfield Road is Acton’s shopping and leisure centre. There’s handicrafts, bric-a-brac and haggling galore on the traditional street market on the Mount (Thurs-Sat), with an excellent farmer’s market taking place Saturday mornings for lip-smacking locally produced food. Stock up a basket and head to nearby Gunnersbury Park in the summer for a tasty urban picnic.

Reflecting the district’s broad cultural cross-section, there’s a wide range of cuisines available in the district from Lebanese to Thai (the Siam Royal Orchid, 367 Uxbridge Road, 020 8752 0221, has highly-rated south-east Asian food with wallet-friendly prices and bring-your-own-booze), Korean to Tapas. There’s also a cracking ethical café/deli, Vanilla (100 Churchfield Road, 020 8993 3565, www.worldvanilla.co.uk) with great coffees and homemade cakes, and Thursdays are devoted to fresh fish delivered straight from south Devon.

There’s a world of experience drinking-wise, too: traditionalists will love the none-more-English St George and the Dragon (183 High Street, 020 8992 3712), a comfy place with dark wood fittings, murals and British comfort food with a gastro twist. Or, there’s the Belvedere (106-112 High Street), London’s first dedicated Polish pub run by a large brewery chain with Okocim on draft, big screen Polish sports and delicacies from the old country. The Redback Tavern (264 High Street, 020 8896 1458, www.redbacktavern.com) is a local legend, an Australasian bar open until 3am with all the finest cultural exports of our cousins in the Southern Hemisphere available: BBQs, rugby and live rock music, stunning drinks promotions and a fearsome party ethic – much like the 60s, if you can remember it, you weren’t there.

Acton Town (Piccadilly and District Lines) and North, East and West Acton (all Central) are the local Underground stations, with rail services from Acton Central, South Acton and Acton Main Line.
