A Little Bit About Acton

Acton means “oak farm” or “farm by oak trees”, and is derived from the Anglo-Saxon ac (oak) and tun (farm).


Towards the end of the 17th century several springs were found on the north-east side of Acton and for a time they became health spas. As a result of the local soft water Acton became famous for its laundries and at the end of the 19th century there were around 170 establishments in South Acton. These laundries would serve hotels and the rich in London’s West End, leading to the nickname “Soapsuds Island”.

South Acton is the site of actual housing estate featured in long running BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses, not in Peckham as the script describes.

Central Acton lies on the former main road between London and Oxford (the Uxbridge Road) and several inns along it date back several centuries as stopping places for travellers. Acton is home to more railway stations than any other area of London; seven stations in the locality feature Acton in their name.



Acton has four secondary high schools, Acton High School, Twyford Church of England High School, The Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls and Barbara Speake Stage School. Acton also hosts the King Fahed Academy – a Muslim school – and the popular Japanese school on the old Haberdashers & Cardinal Newman site.
