Shepherd’s Bush is located in West London, in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Although situated slightly away from the very centre of the capital it more than makes up for this by offering its own distinctive mix of retail opportunities, cultural attractions and a cosmopolitan and lively atmosphere. Throw in a host of transport links to other parts of London and a contemporary version of the traditional village green and you have an area that’s well worth visiting either as a base from which to explore London or as a destination in its’ own right.
The heart of Shepherd’s Bush is Shepherd’s Bush Green. This triangular open space is 8 acres of greenery surrounded on all sides by the bustle of the big city. Most of the major roads which run through Shepherd’s Bush converge around the green, making it the perfect place from which to catch a bus to neighbouring areas such as Notting Hill, Holland Park and beyond. Bus routes serving the area include the 94, the C1 and the 31, and the area is also home to five separate tube stations, offering access to the Circle, Central and Hammersmith and City lines.
The green was substantially redeveloped in 2013, a process which included the planting of trees, the creation of new cycle paths and the commissioning of several pieces of large scale public sculpture. Today, the space is most likely to be used as simply a place to relax and enjoy some fresh air whilst exploring the many cafes, pubs and shops which line the streets surrounding it.
In terms of shopping, Shepherd’s Bush offers two contrasting but equally appealing options. To the north of the green you’ll find Westfield Shopping Centre, the largest indoor urban centre of its kind in Europe. Bigger than 30 football pitches and home to more than 200 different outlets, Westfield will offer everything you could possibly need in the shape of high street, brand name shopping.
Much more traditional and local in nature is Shepherd’s Bush Market, a permanent market which is open six days a week and sells everything from cooked food and ingredients to hardware and bric-a-brac. In cultural terms the area was once famous for being home to several of the most important BBC buildings and, although most of these have now been moved, the streets around Shepherd’s Bush can often be spotted in the background of TV programmes made in the seventies and eighties.
