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.

The south side also has a smaller shopping centre, West 12, with a supermarket, cinema and gym. The main thoroughfares are Uxbridge Road, Goldhawk Road and Askew Road, all containing a large number of small and mostly independent shops, pubs and restaurants. It is bordered by Hammersmith to the south/south-west, Brook Green to the south/south-east, Holland Park (and then Notting Hill) to the east, Willesden and Harlesden to the north and by Acton and Chiswick to the west.
