Acton High Street is the main road in the heart Acton, which sets the vibe for the rest of the town with its colourful, fast-paced, lively and buzzing atmosphere.
Forming the central shopping row in Acton, the road is home to a wealth of independently-owned newsagents, grocers and smaller shops that cater for a variety of cultures and backgrounds. It also hosts the larger chains such as Costa Coffee, Morrisons Supermarket and Subway.
In the evenings, one can visit one of the many pubs either on or close to the High Street, such as The Rocket, The Station House or The Aeronaut. Residents can also take advantage of the street’s fantastic eateries, including Ciambella for Italian or Pinto for Thai.
Accommodation on the High Street forms only a small percentage of the property on the road, as most buildings are used solely for commercial purposes. Flats are usually above the shops, and as a result each one tends to be unique and often quirky - uncharacteristic of West London property.
Residents are usually first-time buyers, graduates and those who wish to simply live in a pleasant area that is due to look forward to much capital growth. The area is hugely popular with investors, due to Crossrail plans. Busy young professionals can benefit from being located on a street where they can easily hop on a bus to a variety of different locations. The High Street also attracts families who wish to be within the catchment areas of Acton’s top schools such as the Arc Academy.
For shopping, residents are spoilt for choice. There’s a range of boutiques and shops in the area, though the more serious shoppers head to Westfield in nearby Shepherd’s Bush. Transport links are excellent, and Acton Town, Acton Central and Acton Mainline stations are all just a short walk away.
In recent years, the High Street has been in a constant state of improvement and is evolving into one that accommodates Acton’s new, more affluent demographic.
