Get to know Acton
Acton is undergoing a huge regeneration, making it one of the most sought after areas for those looking for a sense of community within easy reach of central London. Rosebank has been designed to be an integral part of the wider neighbourhood.
The development is within walking distance of many parks, and the area has excellent pubs, bars and restaurants offering a wide range of cuisines from around the world. Acton Market is nearby, a community-run project offering some of the best street food and crafts in West London.
Acton is home to a wide range of popular restaurants and pubs. Charlotte’s Place is a top pick for modern British food, while the Laveli bakery is nearby for freshly baked bread and pastries. For the evening, there are several pubs and bars to choose from. Park + Bridge on Churchfield Road is a must-visit if you’re looking for something special. For an evening at the pub, the George & Dragon is always welcoming and has its own microbrewery in the old dining room.
Weekends are never dull in this part of London. Acton Central Market is the place to go for organic produce. When it comes to a Sunday Brunch, you can head to Proud Mary’s on Oaklands Grove for eggs or a full English. Rosebank is within easy reach of the many parks in West London. Acton Park is a short walk away and always busy with dog walkers, runners and families enjoying a day out. Further afield, there’s Ealing Common, North Acton Playing Fields, Wormwood Scrubs Park and the green expanse of Gunnersbury Park.
With both tube and overground stations nearby, Acton is one of the best-served areas of London, and it’s set to improve further with the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail).
Acton Main Line Station will be a part of the Elizabeth Line and is set to be fully open from December 2019. Thanks to this innovation, Bond Street will be a 9-minute journey, Canary Wharf only 23 minutes and Heathrow Airport will be 17 minutes away by train.
In addition, all the nearby Underground stations are on the Central Line, linking Acton with the heart of London. Paddington is within easy reach as is White City, where the Westfield Shopping Centre offers one of the best shopping, dining and entertainment experiences in the city.
The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation is developing a whole new centre and community for West London, including investment in rail infrastructure such as High Speed 2 and the Elizabeth Line to create new opportunities for people in the area.
