Hanwell is a village that has been swallowed up by London. However, it still retains its charm with independent coffee shops and the "Broadway" (high street). Generally a safe and friendly place to live (we've had no issues with crime in the 4y we've lived here). The population is a mix of young professionals and families in addition to lots of people who have lived in the area for many years and care about the community.

*Excellent transport links
- Crossrail (new train link with 15 min journey time to Central London/Heathrow due to open in Autumn 2019)
- Multiple bus routes to Ealing Broadway (Central + District tube lines and overground train to Paddington) and Boston Manor (Piccadilly line/Heathrow). Having trained in many London hospitals, I find I can commute to most areas of central within 1/2h - 1h.
- Easy to accesss M25, M3, M4, M40 (For SW England/Bristol/Oxford/Birmingham). Oxford is approx. 1h by car)

- Newsagents/grocery shops 5 minute walk away (multiple larger supermarkets via bus/10 min drive including Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsburys).
- Near to large parks, nature reserves, golf courses and a stately home (Brent Park, Osterley House & Garden)
- Grand Union Canal on the doorstep (with some historic listed lock houses, the famous Hanwell "flight" of locks and some impressive Isambard Kingdom Brunel engineering).
- Excellent pubs and restuarants (try The Fox - our favourite!)
- 24/7 gym 10 min bus/drive away in West Ealing. Nearest gym is a 10m walk.

- 3/4 nurseries within 5-10 min walk
- 2 OFSTEAD rated "good" primary schools within walking distance
- Hanwell zoo is 10 min away (playpark/cafe/meerkats/rabbits etc)
