The Knowhere Guide

The Worst Things in Acton, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Acton.

The Worst Things
  • "Acton Vale" should be renamed "Action Veil" for it's Uber-Islamic Tolerance.
  • "little Somalia" no need to say any more.
  • Acton is full of take away shops. Drunks and druggies and people screwing the social for free hand outs. Acton has a very high population of refugees and immigrants. If you want to learn a new language then just sit on a bench in the Oaks shopping centre. Acton is a sh*t hole.
  • Traditional old pubs being turned into identikit aussie bars. A lot of winos and tramps about.
  • Drunk Antipodeans
  • Just don't drink/shop/eat here and there aren't that many
  • Divey pubs & clubs - crappy supermarkets. No decent record or bookshops. Local people don't use Acton facilities as they have Chiswick / Bush / Ealing on the doorstep.
