Southall is a very diverse area in the west of London, falling within the borough of Ealing. On the outskirts of the city, it provides a vibrant atmosphere which is very different to the centre of the city but still remains within easy reach.
The area is sometimes dubbed Little India because of its large south Asian population, and the fact that it’s home to the largest Sikh community in Britain. It’s a highly spiritual town with a number of Muslim mosques, Sikh gurdwaras and Christian churches too. Out of these, the most notable is Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha which is the biggest Sikh gurdwara to be located outside Asia. The fascinating mix of cultures make Southall a particularly friendly town, with visitors provided with a warm welcome.
The diverse ethnicity of the town is officially recognised and some of the signs are written bilingually in English and also Gurmukhi, a form of Punjabi.
Southall was originally built up around the Grand Union Canal and although it’s no longer used for industrial purposes, it’s still a major waterway with many walks running alongside it.
Architecture fans can see the completion of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s work here, the famous Three Bridges. A clever piece of engineering, this landmark allows three bridges to converge and pass over each other with the road positioned above the canal, which lies above the railway.
During the day, Southall lies nears to many places of interest for the family, such as Bunny Park. This is an area where there’s plenty of animals such as goats, rabbits, sheep and birds to see while peacocks roam the grounds freely.
For evening entertainment, there’s no shortage of restaurants within Southall, primarily specialising in a range of Asian cuisines. Southall isn’t a hotspot for nightclubs but there are lots of bars and pubs along the high street and Ealing with its vibrant nightlife is just a short distance away.
