    Ealing has a great bus service allowing you to get around the local area and also further afield.For example the 207 and 607 buses go to Shepherds Bush for the giant shopping centre called Westfield and the number 83 bus goes from Ealing hospital to Wembley.

    Bike parking & hiring

    [A tip for my VT friend Don]

    A new feature on Haven Green in recent months is this helpful bicycle parking area, opposite Ealing Broadway station. It’s a very practical innovation for commuters especially who can now cycle to the station from home and then get the train to London. As Ealing is quite a large scattered suburb, and the best choice of trains runs from here, I can imagine that this is going to be very popular – and judging by the number of bikes parked here when I went past recently, I am right! And how much better for the environment, as well as cheaper, to cycle here rather than drive.

    The facility offers secure parking for 123 bikes, with CCTV monitoring and good lighting. There is also a new hire scheme for folding bikes available here. The bikes can be hired from one day up to a year.
    To hire a bike, you must first register online, giving credit card details, and you pay a membership fee which varies according to how frequently you want to use the service. For example, frequent users can hire a cycle from £1.60 per day for a month plus a yearly membership fee of £50, or if you just want to try out the scheme, or are visiting Ealing, you can pay just £10 for a week’s trial use. To get your hands on the bike, members have to send a text message on a mobile phone to get a PIN code which will release a bike from its secure dock 24 hours a day. You can reserve a bike or bay to return the bike to, the night before or up to an hour beforehand.

    how to go there

    by mindcrime Written Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We usually take the central line that goes directly from Central London to Ealing Broadway station which is in Zone 3. District Line also goes there but it’s much slower.

    From Ealing Broadway you can also catch the train for Paddington station.

    South Ealing, Ealing Common and North Ealing stations are served by the Piccadilly line.

    How to move around:
    You can easily walk around the central Ealing on foot and check the main sites (Walpole Park, Ealing Studios, Pitzhanger Manor House, etc)

    From Ealing Broadway station you can catch many buses that cover the greater Ealing area.

    Getting to Ealing

    by toonsarah Written May 25, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ealing is in easy reach of central London – one of the reasons it is so popular as a place to live. The main station is Ealing Broadway, which is served by the Central and District tube lines and by mainline services from Paddington. About a mile to the south is South Ealing Station, served by the Piccadilly Line, and a little west of here is Northfields Station on the same line. A journey from central London will take about 30–40 minutes, depending on which route you take and how long you have to wait for a train!

    A large number of bus routes also serve the area. One of the most frequent is the 207, running east to west along the Uxbridge Road between Shepherds Bush and Uxbridge, and with several stops in Ealing. Another useful route, if you’re following my tips, is the 65, which starts in Ealing Broadway and runs south through South Ealing to Kew and Richmond. For other bus routes and travel information check the website below.

    Ealing is situated on the Central and District Lines of the London underground system. Almost at the very end of the west of the lines. To be in the Centre head for Ealing Broadway Station. This also has a main line station with routes to paddington and beyond.
