Car hire London - Ealing
Book a cheap car rental with Budget for hassle free transport in and around the London area.
Part of Greater London since 1965, the town is well known for its film studios. Since being taken over by the BBC, the studios have been the location of such shows as Doctor Who and Monty Python’s Flying Circus, as well as films such as Notting Hill and St. Trinian’s. Take a trip around Ealing and see the places featured in the films by driving at your own leisure.
A historic Victorian town, Ealing was dubbed “Queen of the Suburbs” many years ago, and retains this name today. A quiet drive through its Victorian streets will reveal grand manor houses and the original touches that remain in the Mount Park road area, a reflection of how Ealing evolved quickly from humble beginnings to a fashionable and up-and-coming part of London. Today, it is ideal for celebrity spotting and is home to a multitude of commuters.
Ealing is also a town of music, playing host to the famous Ealing Jazz Club, where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met Brian Jones before forming The Rolling Stones. Rod Stewart and Manfred Mann also played in this club before it was turned into the nightclub now known as The Red Room. Stick a CD into the player and blast some classic hits from these bands before heading out to follow in their footsteps in a night on the town.
Home to a variety of festivals, there is rarely a time when Ealing is not celebrating something. From music festivals such as the Jazz Festival, Blues Festival and Opera in the Park to the Comedy Festival and the annual Beer Festival, successful events take place throughout the year and make the town an excellent place to visit.
