Summer is out and autumn is in. That ‘back to school’ feeling might not be welcome for the sun worshippers, but we think that an Ealing fall is fantastic…and our round-up of destinations will guide you on your socially-distanced autumnal adventures.

  1. Cosy up in a pub or two

Nothing beats a cosy British pub as we wave goodbye to sunny rooftop bars. Located 1.8 miles from Central Square is The Fox – a multi-award winner of ‘Pub of the Year’. Visitors can enjoy hearty home-cooked food and a pint in front of a roaring open fire. What’s more, The Fox has extended Eat out to Help out for September – get down there quickly!

  1. ‘Fall’ in love with London’s coat of orange

Kew Gardens and its world-famous Botanic Gardens are a sight to behold in the autumn months thanks to the fiery red and orange floral displays. Kew Gardens is located just over five miles from Central Square and for those wanting to visit, entry is on an advance booking system only. On colder days, you can still explore the gardens virtually without having to leave the house.

Central Square also has access to an array of open spaces on its doorstep. Residents can make the most of some of leafy Ealing’s open spaces, including Ealing Common, Brent Valley Park, Grand Union Canal and Pitshanger Park, all less than two miles from the development
