Ealing is best known as the ‘Queen of the Suburbs’, but there is far more to its rich history than that. In the Middle Ages Ealing’s market gardens supplied much of London’s produce, and in later centuries it has played an often colourful part in history, being home to the royal mistresses of Edward III, George IV and Queen Victoria’s father, the Duke of Kent; and of Spencer Perceval, the only British prime minister to be assassinated.


A–Z of Ealing reveals the history behind Ealing, its streets and buildings, industries and the people connected with the borough. Alongside the famous historical connections are unusual characters, tucked-away places and unique events that are less well-known. Readers will discover tales of the notorious highwayman Sixteen String Jack, Ealing’s connection with the British music scene in the 1960s and Acton’s history as a spa resort, among many other fascinating facts in this A–Z tour of Ealing’s history. It is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this historic part of West London.
