Known for its long entertainment legacy and cultural flair, Ealing is a big hit with people from all over the UK and beyond.

  • Ealing's name is believed to have come from the Saxon word Gillingas, meaning "place of the people associated with Gilla". After many adaptations over the centuries, including Illing, Gilling, and Yilling, Ealing became standard in the 1800s. Now, the entire district is dubbed "Queen of the Suburbs".
  • Ealing's long history dates back as far as 7,000 years, with several important settlements scattered throughout the area. It rose to prominence in the 15th century with the establishment of the Great Ealing School, which has since attracted many prestigious pupils.
  • Since the mid-20th century, Ealing has played a considerable role in the entertainment industry. Ealing Studios has participated in several global and local productions, and continues to be a major component of British and Hollywood media today.
