This area is the cheap alternative to the very exclusive Bedford Park and Ealing but this is where the value lies – you get a lot for your money.  It is not an area just made up of council blocks.  There are several pockets of Victorian homes and converted apartments dotted around that make very good professional rentals.  The Tudor estate has a number of reasonably priced flats which are a hit with the younger professionals.

The is a high percentage (around 35%) of ethnic minorities – mainly Asian (because of its proximity to Southall and Ealing) and Japanese (because of the Japanese school in the area).   There are also a lot of Antipidians (Australians, New Zealanders & South Africans) in the area because of the availability of affordable multi-lets in large converted buildings.

The high street, Acton High St, has secured a grant for a complete revamp and regeneration of the street which will make the whole feel of the area more welcoming.  If you can afford it then take a trip to Poets Corner – it is the visual definition of the word ‘gentrification’.

Your money is safe in this area.  It has great links to the A40 and M4 which take you to Heathrow and Oxford, there are plenty of large Blue Chip employers in and surrounding Acton and there is a certain buzz to the area which will ensure that rental demand will always be strong and that rental values will hold.
