i might be doing this. any comments from people who've lived there before?
they like it, but they're not the most rock'n'roll of people (not meant as a slight).
daytime transport links into central london are pretty good.
only two night bus routes from central london which isn't bad. dunno how long it takes or how reliable they are.
where are you going to be working?
and travelling in for the gigz at night...hannah will either be working at the beeb or the history channel (hopefully) so the location seems goodish.
i'd go for it then! you'll get a decent amount of space for your money, which will be important if you're working from home.
quite nice looking 2 bedroom flats for around 950-1000...
i'd actually be jealous if you did..
lives in Ealing. I agree with guntrip.
West Ealing is a shithole but the rest of Ealing isn't too bad, if a bit dull. Nightlife's nothing to write home about though The North Star is a decent little pub. Steer clear of Edward's and The Town House, both pretty shit.
No music scene to speak of but still, Central Line, innit.
goodish access to central but not toooo busy...seems like has some nice flats etc.
within 1 mile?
and a waitrose.
and an ASK pizza restaurant so i can get takeaway from it.
thats really all i need to live.
it's nice enough i spose, and it's on the central line.
your nightbus home will be a looooong one however. n207 FTW! :(
you'll also make a lot of Antipodean friends.
there are lots of Australians and Japanese here. The Aussies pretty much dominate my local pub but they're a nice enough bunch.
I lived near there and found it too far out for my taste as it was a pain to get back on the night bus (although it's not so bad if you're going direct to Ealing Broadway area).
The area's fine but most gigs tend to take place in North or East London. Great for the BBC though...
and they have no complaints, there's trains that go straight to Paddington in about 10-15 minutes so it's dead easy to get to central London.
Although 1 friend told me the local gay pub was covered in homophobic graffiti on Friday night, though this is obviously an isolated incident :S
that's how lame it is. never live somewhere a tube normally terminates. it's a sign of being lame.
it does mean not ending up in penge if you fall asleep
it tastes like metal.
you know how the bloke from disturbed feels 24/7
you may end up on the Hayes ByPass......
reply with a sex related joke based on the name Hayes ByPass which would paint you as a hussy. but i won't.
my fucking arse it does.
It'll be cheap. Because it is nowhere. Enjoy.
so i'm slowly getting better
is far easier to deal with if you're working from home and can sit around in your pants all day.
