Shepherd's Bush Area Guide

Shepherd's Bush is located in the West London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham

It's an area that's become increasingly popular with Londoners over the years, thanks to its proximity to zone 1, the thriving, friendly community, and huge investment in its local amenities.

Transport

Travelling to London's other boroughs is easy thanks to the range of transport options available. The Underground stations are on the Central line, Hammersmith and City Line and Circle Lines as well as the Overground links to Willesden Junction and Clapham Junction. Cyclists may prefer to hire a Santander Cycle instead.

Shopping and eating out

Hammersmith Bridge

Residents are spoilt when it comes to retail options in Shepherd's Bush, mainly because it's where Europe's largest shopping centre lives. Westfield London boasts an extensive range of stores, from luxurious retailers to high street favourites. It even has its own cinema, ice rink (over the winter period) and a number of places to eat and drink. It's easy to spend a whole Saturday here.

Those after a meal won't be disappointed as Shepherd's Bush is full of fantastic restaurants to suit every budget and taste. One night you could be eating Malaysian food, the next you could be dining on Lebanese cuisine.

Schools

Shepherd's Bush is a great place to bring up a family, thanks in part to the number of high quality educational facilities in the area. Many of the primary schools have received an Outstanding rating from Ofstead recently, including Good Shepherd RC (one of the top-performing schools in the country), John Betts, Miles Coverdale, Brackenbury and St Stephen's CofE.

There are also two Outstanding Catholic secondary schools nearby – Cardinal Vaughan for boys and Sacred Heart for girls. Plus, there are various highly-rated private institutions in the vicinity.

Leisure and entertainment

Ravenscourt Park is just down the road and boasts a wonderful green space. There's a bowling green, a children's playground, café and some tennis courts – something for all ages.

If you love the theatre, live music or the cinema, you'll be pleased to know you're spoilt for choice when it comes to all three. The Bush Theatre is the place to go to see contemporary, and often witty, stories told on the stage. Film fans have access to two multiplex cinemas in Shepherd's Bush.

For music events, head to the nearby Bush Hall, where the likes of Adele, R.E.M and Lily Allen have performed. Of course, there's also the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire music venue, which has a capacity of 2,000.

For little ones interested in becoming a bit more musical themselves, The Music House for Children does both vocal and instrumental lessons. You can either arrange for your child to have lessons at home or with a small group at the school. They even teach children with additional needs, such as those with ADHD, autism or deafness.

As you can see, Shepherd's Bush is a wonderful place to live. If you're interested in moving to this area and would like to know more, please visit our office on Uxbridge Road or give us a call.
