Acton Area Guide
Sitting to the North of Chiswick, Acton covers a surprisingly large area with a wide range of housing stock from the large Victorian villas of the Mill Hill Conservation Area close to Acton Town Station to the mix of pretty Victorian cottages and family houses of Poet's Corner.
The impending arrival of Crossrail has increased the desirability of the area with a number of regeneration projects complete or underway. Investment in the High Street continues with the quality of shops and restaurants improving all of the time.
One of the major draws for families is the recently opened David Lloyd Club. Set in 27 acres of beautiful grounds it is a first-class fitness destination for all the family with swimming pools and tennis courts available to use throughout the year, a cutting-edge gym and plenty of fitness classes. Virgin Active West London also offers fantastic facilities for all the family with 10 tennis courts, 3 swimming pools, football pitches and numerous gym classes.
