Hanwell: A green, peaceful environment for Londoners

Hanwell: A green, peaceful environment for LondonersHanwell is a small town located in the borough of Ealing and is in between Ealing and Southall, providing excellent transport links to the rest of the capital.

With delightful greenery, open spaces and a range of amenities, Hanwell has emerged as an appealing destination for house-movers and offers excellent value for money, especially when compared with other areas of the city.

The city has a storied past, with the Uxbridge Road area previously being used as a location for numerous coaching inns. These were made to cater to travellers in the area and many of them are still run as pubs today. 

Along with old-fashioned charm, Hanwell has a number of local amenities, meaning locals do not need to travel far in order to fill up their cupboards. 

With the River Brent running through Hanwell, there are excellent opportunities for walks and local pubs and cottages nicely fit in with the quiet way of life in the town. 

Therefore, for those who want quick access to the city but want to be away from the capital’s busy streets, Hanwell is a fantastic option. 

History

Although Hanwell’s neighbour Eailing is more well known, Hanwell has a long history. Some of its longest-standing buildings remain in use today, including The Fox, which was originally developed in 1848. 

Since those days, the area has seen further development, with a number of local shops being built. However, it remains a peaceful part of West London and is a popular location for families and professionals. 

Transport

Hanwell Station is the nearest Underground stop in the area, providing services to Greenford Broadway and easy connections to other lines and routes. 

There are a number of other transport options nearby, too, including Drayton Green station and Castle Bar Park station. 

For drivers, Uxbridge road provides easy access to many neighbouring towns, including Acton and Eailing Broadway.

Amenities 

Hanwell’s green location means there are many open spaces in the town, giving residents plenty of places to relax and unwind.

One of the top locations to visit is Brent Lodge Park, where there is an animal centre, a Butterfly House and a riverside woodland for some delightful photo opportunities. 

The Ceramics Cafe is another excellent place to relax, where people can choose to make presents and keepsakes. 

Along with typical high street shops, there are a number of independent stores in the area, which provide a variety of products and services. 

What’s more, if you want to explore the high-street, the wonders of Central London are only a few Tube stops away!

Properties

With Hanwell being away from crowded Central London, there are plenty of housing options for workers, including one-bedroom flats, terraced and semi-detached properties with a range of bedrooms. 

Ealing Council is also rolling out a housing regeneration programme, which will help to transform many of the area’s properties and make them suitable for the market. 

The area is enjoying significant economic growth at the moment, making it an excellent option for Londoners seeking a more affordable lifestyle.
