Estate agents in Acton

Acton is a lively town in the heart of West London and is known by some as one of London's best-kept secrets. The name Acton was registered as a borough in 1921 and translates to “Oak town”. At present, the fantastic town is a well sought-after area to live due to its well-connected transport links and its numerous cafes and eateries serving delicious food. Acton is positioned between Shepherd’s Bush and White City and part of the London Borough of Ealing. Acton offers a range of transport links within a convenient location, and is seen to be one of London's most up-and-coming areas to live.

Although it covers a relatively small geographical area, Acton has several distinct neighbourhoods, with each boasting its own unique appeal. Acton Town is the central hub of the area, with its bustling high street and array of cafés and restaurants. Meanwhile, the quieter residential neighbourhoods of South Acton, East Acton and West Acton provide rows and rows of terraced period houses and semi-detached properties.

Not to be forgotten from the list of the best places to live in Acton, North Acton also offers a wealth of new-build developments, creating a thriving new community in a previously underdeveloped corner of the area.

Acton is a great area for getting around London and beyond with District and Piccadilly line trains at Acton Town, Overground trains at both Acton Central and South Acton, trains going to Paddington, and the benefit of the Central line train at North Acton, West Acton, and East Acton. Driving is also easy with the M4 corridor in proximity. Finally, Acton main line station provides services into Paddington by London Overground as well as Bond Street, Canary Wharf, or Heathrow Airport via the Elizabeth Line.

Acton has a variety of well-performing schools available. Your children will have a first-class education. There are 10 schools with an Ofsted inspection rating of “Outstanding”, making it an ideal location for families to live.

While Acton has a lot of competition from nearby Chiswick and Ealing, multi-million-pound regeneration projects have put it back on the map. The high street now throbs with new life and a slew of enticing independent shops. Acton Park is the spiritual heart of the area, and has benefitted from a major renewal scheme. Another major park is Gunnersbury Park. A 72-hectare heritage park situated between Hounslow and Ealing which include Gr ade II listed buildings and a Museum.

Acton continues to go from strength to strength in terms of attracting new investment. The recent Acton Gardens renewal project is a big success story of urban regeneration and sustainability. And earlier this year, TfL’s largest residential development to date was approved, which will see 852 new homes built in Acton.

This goes to show that Acton is still on the up. This makes it attractive to anyone who loves the West London vibe, but is still looking for an affordable property in an area that’s transforming for the better.
