Ealing Studios

Ealing is a major west London suburb lying eight miles west of Charing Cross and the same again to Heathrow, with a firmly middle-class character augmented by lots of interesting ethnic communities and some lively cosmopolitan corners.

Otherwise little more than a well-functioning suburban town popular for its excellent transport links, Ealing has actually contributed a lot to British popular culture in the last 80 years, not least with the film factory that gave it worldwide fame. Ealing Studios were founded in 1929 as a base for British “talkies” – it’s arguably the world’s oldest studio – and as well as making a star of George Formby, the studios hit paydirt with light postwar hits like Whisky Galore!, Kind Hearts and Coronets and The Lavender Hill Mob, giving birth to the term ‘Ealing Comedies’.

The BBC moved in the 50s, shooting everything from Monty Python to Dr Who, and blockbusters like Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and 2002’s The Importance of Being Earnest still roll out of Ealing. There’s an excellent film school, the Metropolitan, onsite, and the young international film-makers who fill nearby cafes and pubs with excited talk of their latest masterpiece give the surrounding areas a real buzz.

 Ealing’s also a good advert for multi-culturalism: you’ll find superb sushi and Japanese bookshops around Ealing Common, excellent Polish delis and Indian restaurants everywhere; there’s also a thriving Irish community with authentic, flag-filled boozers and two Gaelic games teams in the district.

Ealing Broadway near the tube has a major shopping centre, interesting small cafes and the Red Room nightclub on the Broadway is another cultural monument: it once hosted Ealing Jazz Club, the venue where Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones officially became the Rolling Stones, and a regular hangout of London’s 60s r’n’ ; ;b set – Rod Stewart, Hendrix, The Who et al.

Famous residents of Ealing past & present include Dusty Springfield (singer, songwriter), Chris Patten (the last ambassador to Hong Kong) and Fred Perry (tennis player) who went on to become a Wimbledon Champion,

Ealing Broadway station (Zone 3) has District and Central Line services to central and further west London, and there’s fast rail links to Paddington and Heathrow.
