Acton Mural Trail celebrates the people and creativity of Acton with 23 artworks to visit

Having launched last week as part of Open House Festival 2022 which celebrates London’s housing, architecture and neighbourhoods, Acton Mural Trail offers a celebration of Ealing’s most eastern town, Acton.

The Acton Mural Trail, which also coincides with Borough of Ealing Art Trail (BEAT) that is also happening this month, features 23 artworks featuring murals by international artists, local artists and a children’s trail.

Along the trail is streetart from artists Findac and Remi Rough, local artists ATM and Karen Francesca, children’s art trail by A.P.P.L.E in Acton Park, and a metal sculpture of Jamal Edwards by Matt Small that has now become a memorial.

Kal Di Paola, from W3Hive who is involved with the project explains more about the initiative.

How long have you been planning it?
The trail is a collaboration between a number of people who created art in Acton. Artification have been creating street art in South Acton since 2003, Acton Unframed launched in Central Acton in 2019, David Samuel in North Acton in the past few years and A.P.P.L.E Acton started a tree trail in 2008 – it gets updated regularly.

What was the inspiration of doing it?
The Acton Mural Trail Map was commissioned by Ealing Council to showcase the creativity in our neighbourhood and to demonstrate the significance of art in the community.

For a day out for someone to visit all the murals, where would you suggest people to eat/drink nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Breakfast – looking for a greasy spoon? Franks Cafe, more upmarket? Fed&Watered. Coffee on the go Buono or Art of Chimney Cafe, Healthy juices, Bondi.
Lunch – on the go? grab a wrap from the Lebanese stall in Acton Market or sit down for sushi at Ezo
Dinner – so many international choices from Chinese at My Old China, Thai at Rod Fhai, Caribean at Ku Sheng Peng, Japanese at Hasu, Greek at Tasty Greek Souvlaki or Italian at Station House.

How many steps/miles would it take to visit all the murals by following the trail?
Its quite a stretch so best done in 2 parts or by bike.

What next after the trail as it coincides with Open House. Will new murals are added will they be updated to this?

The plan is to add to the trail overtime.
