Boomtown Studio's recording facility is located at the junction of Valetta Rd and Westvale Mews in Acton - just north of Chiswick and half way between Shepherds Bush and Ealing.
The recording studio building doesn't have a street number but is next door to 83 Valetta Rd, London W3 7TG. It has a large blue door behind a security grill and a "Boomtown Studio" metal nameplate on the wall. The bell-push is on the door. If you get lost, call us!
Shops and restaurants are within easy reach on The Vale.
A Tesco Metro supermarket lies a minute's walk away from the studio at the top of Cowley Road.
There is a minicab office (Vale Cars: 020 8743 1881) on The Vale opposite Tesco.
Very comprehensive instructions on how to reach the studio can be found below:

Boomtown Studio doesn't have a street number so here's what to put in your SatNav: 83 Valetta Road, London W3 7TG.
Please note that the studio itself is next door to 83 Valetta Rd, has a large blue door behind a security grill and a "Boomtown Studio" metal nameplate on the wall.
Now, on to the joys of parking - see map below.
Residents Parking is in effect in Valetta Rd from 9am - 7pm on week days only.
If you're lucky enough to catch a space, there is free parking in Swainson Road and a Tesco supermarket (with free car parking limited to one hour) is a couple of minute's walk away from the studio at the top of Cowley Road (on The Vale) if you fancy a shop en route. The Tesco car park is to the south of the store on the left hand side as you travel down Swainson Rd.
Metered parking can be found in Valetta Rd (west of the junction with Larden Rd) and at the north end of Dordrecht Rd. There are meters in Larden Rd (to the south) but, being in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, they cost more!
If you have the RingGo app on your phone you can pay for parking (and top up) directly without having to use a meter.
You can register for RingGo here. It is highly recommended that you install and register the RingGo App before hitting the pay & display spaces as it can be somewhat time consuming to have to do that in the street.
If you have the paybyphone app, you can park in Dordrecht Rd & environs - location 37187. This allows you to pay by phone and park in Resident bays in Dordrecht and Larden Rd.
Please note that the car park adjacent the studio in Westvale Mews is private and may not be used by clients.

If on bicycle, you're very welcome to bring it into the studio lobby area to store if there is room. Otherwise there is a very sturdy street sign post right outside to which you can secure your machine with a suitable lock (or two).
If on motorbike, Ealing Council currently has an enlightened approach to motorcycle parking:
Motorcycles can park free of charge in any permit parking place in the borough and can park in pay and display bays without charge.
There is generally good availability in the resident parking bays outside the studio but motorcycles are not permitted to park in those reserved for specific uses, such as disabled parking.
The car park in Westvale Mews (next to the studio) is not available for use as it is private.
