What locals say about Shepherd's Bush

  1. I love the area as there is always something going on, great transport to get to all my favourite places in town and of course Westfields!!! what more could a girl want!

  2. It's really cool being close to the shops, cinema, good restaurants, great tube and bus links and of course Westfields is right beside us.

  3. This is a lovely area with plenty of parks nearby and interesting places to visit. Being close to a couple of football clubs and great pubs is an added advantage. A great place to live.

  4. I love living here because it is only a short tube or bus away from central London. In the surrounding area there is lots to do with pubs, theatres, cinemas and Westfield.
