The London Borough of Ealing, West London is home to a cultural melting pot of Asian cuisine, fashion and design. Southall in particular has the largest Asian community in London.
With this in mind, if you were to meander down Southall Broadway, you’d find everything from local, handmade food and exotic spices, to fashion and jewellers. It’s the perfect place to absorb the Asian atmosphere, or treat yourself to a shopping spree over the weekend.
Close your eyes at any point along Southall Broadway on market day (Wednesday, Friday or Saturday) and the sounds and smells will immediately whisk you away to a far off street in India or Pakistan. Southall Broadway on Uxbridge Road is alive with Bhangra music and the hustle and bustle of street stalls.
Naturally, there is a huge range of places to eat, many of which reflecting the cultural mix of the people who live here.
If you need to escape this heady mix for a short while, a good place to go is the Sikh temple, Sri Guru Singh Sabha, the largest Gurdwara outside India, described by visitors as a place of peace and solace.
Southall is also a world famous shopping destination, offering a unique shopping experience, where you can come to see the bazaars, street traders and mango sellers.
