Favourite Building
  • The old library in WalpolePark.
  • The old library in WalpolePark.
  • The old library in WalpolePark.
  • St.Mary's Church in Northolt Village. A marvellous Saxon Church standing atop the hill, reputed to have been an ancient place of pagan worship. The church still has its gallery and many interesting memorial inscriptions.
  • The Hoover building in perivale is iconic, some really nice houses in central ealing
  • more like monumnet the Buildings arent special in ealing but the houses are victorian. there are some really nice ones.
  • I think I may be the only person on the planet who thought the old Indian cinema in West Ealing had potential-I'm sure it was once a very beautiful building but no one bothered to give it a chance and just demolished it. The Hoover building (Tesco) in Perivale looks cool... ...if you blur your eyes.
  • The 1930's Fire Fighters' Building at Uxbridge Road. It's a classic!
  • The weird pale blue building near Perceval House, it has layers like some kind of dirty square wedding cake.
  • The town hall and ex woolworths in west ealing
  • huh huh huh
  • The town Hall, closest thing to decent architecture in the vacinity.
  • kew steam museum
  • kew steam museum
  • Nick's House
  • EBSC
  • The train outta here!
  • the urinal..wot a hangout, authentic smell an all
  • Not. The Central Library. Sure, good collection, staff friendly and helpful (even when contending with above-average quota of awkward customers, dickheads and loonies). But.... Until lately, narrow approach stairs that only permitted one person at a time. Notices at the top warning that floors are slippery in inclement weather (brilliant architect -nobody told him or her that it rains in England, or told the council you can put gritty surface stuff down to make places less slippy). Inside, more notices warning you not to sit in the alcoves in case the fire curtain comes down on you. And I bet the architect won a prize.
  • the foam shop by west ealing station. it's just fantastic. it sells nothing but foam, foam stacked right to the ceiling, and it's really grotty-looking. 'foam cut to any shape and size'. i love it. foam's big business apparently (there's a rival foam shop across the road from this one). foam foam foam
  • ealing studios
  • The town hall.
  • The building that looks likie a battleshipo next to the town hall.
  • The towers of The broadway centre
  • all the pubs!!!
  • Was Rowses Department store (until it was flattened) The staff were exactly like 'Are you being served'! It was hilarious in there.
  • central library
