Estate and Letting Agent in Greenford UB6

Greenford is a large suburb of the borough of Ealing, in North West London. The area is popular with a diverse range of families, and offers larger properties than many similar areas in central London. Unlike many suburbs of London boroughs, there are a good selection of two and three bed semi-detached houses available in Greenford.

The relatively large postcode is covered by a number of tube stations, including a link to the Central line, providing easy and quick access to the Centre and East of the city. Close to the A40, Greenford also has good links to the M25, the M40, offering easy travel towards the Midlands, and the M4 towards Wales and the West of England.

There are a good range of parks and open spaces in the area - just one of the factors making the area popular with young families. The largest of these parks, on the site of the former Ravenor Farm, has become the venue for the annual Greenford Carnival, which takes place there every July.

Other notable landmarks include Horsenden Hill - a large open space that rises 279 ft above sea level and offers attractive views of the area, as well as a small golf course. The area is also known for its pretty, 14th Century Parish Church of the Holy Cross, and the 18th Century Betham House.

Although largely residential, Greenford has an usual claim to fame in that its Oldfield Tavern public house was a popular haunt for a rock group known as the Detours. In 1964 the group met the drummer, Keith Moon, and were reborn as The Who.

Other sites of interest include the Heritage centre, which displays a range of historical artefacts from the 20th Century, reflecting on the lives of previous generations in Britain. Greenford is also home to London's only motorcycle museum. The establishment has grown significantly since its formation in 1999, with its initial 60 exhibits now having been extended to well over 200 bikes and pieces of memorabilia.

A number of secondary schools are established in the area, including a number of Church of England and Catholic schools that have been rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted. Although there are no outstanding primary schools in the area, a reasonable number have been rated as 'good'. The school population is generally very diverse, and academic results are considered average to good.
