The atmosphere of the W12 area has, over time, become more cosmopolitan
The atmosphere of the W12 area has, over time, become more cosmopolitan and trendier pop up establishments have made themselves felt. The massive regeneration of the whole area started with the Westfield Shopping Centre and has continued with the BBC conversion into luxury apartments and the creation of the massive upmarket 'White City Living Area'. This huge regeneration has imbued the area with a safer feeling from that which may have been prevalent 30 years ago. Pet Owners are well serviced by vets in the area as well as the several large parks of Shepherds Bush Green, Wormwood Scrubs and Little Wormwood Scrubs.
There is a very comprehensive range of transportation links serving the W12 area. The bus network, including the Night Bus network is extensive and the White City Bus Station located at White City/Westfield Shopping Centre is a perfect point where most parts of London can be reached. The W12 area is amply serviced by the Central Line which cuts across right across the whole of London as well as the Hammersmith and City Line. The London Overground also serves Shepherds Bush thus enabling travellers to easily access all part of London and the surrounding areas. All transport links and outlets are easily accessible the the shopping and commuting public that can enjoy regular and consistent services.
This area is remarkably quiet given that it is just of the relatively busy Wood Lane that connects Shepherds Bush withHarrow Road to the north. There is seldom any noticeable crime and this may be influenced by the fact that there is a strong 'community ethic' which is evident in the number of neighbourhood watch schemes and online communities that are focussed on the region. Most family make up of residents in this road is mixed and reflects the nature of the street that contains both maisonettes down on side and houses down the other. The near proximity of hospitals and specifically the Imperial College London campus and laboratories result in a high number of younger people that rent in the area though there are plenty of established older people who have clearly made this place their home all their lives.
The W12 area is ideally located to be within a very easy reach of London's Oxford Street and West End. The London Underground Central line cuts a direct route across London from Shepherds Bush through to the City. This connects the massive Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush (the largest in-city shopping centre in Europe) with the world famous shopping areas of Oxford Street and Bond Street. As well as excellent smaller shops in Shepherds Bush which cater to a wide variety of local needs, there is also an abundance of restaurants and eateries that satisfy an extensive range of local and international tastes. Apart from the large Shepherds Bush Green space which was not long ago redeveloped, just to the north there is the huge space of Wormwood Scrubs which easily plays host to many outdoor games that local residents indulge in and is also a massive facility for dog lovers and nature loves. It's sister, the littler Little Wormwood scrubs is next door which is a lovely manured garden with play areas for children An international Hotel, the Dorsett and the Ibis , as well as the Hilton International provide ample facility for tourists and locals like and adds to the comopolitan feel that the area has. With it's ample transportation links, several hospitals in the area, it's not easy to immediately think of any facilities this location lacks.
I think it has a good mix of different people.
The local area is friendly with many amenities. I think it has a good mix of different people. There have been recent improvements on the roads improving transport links. There are so many great places to eat for any budget and plenty of green spaces and markets. I think it’s suitable for anyone really and I have never felt unsafe here having lived here for 12 years
Fantastic transport links with 2 local train/tube stations with direct links to West, Central and East London. There are frequent and reliable trains. Bus services are plentiful going into central and south London. Ladbroke Grove can get busy at times but recent road works have greatly improved local transport. There is also a local night bus service into central london too
There is traffic noise on my street but I live on a busy main road so no surprise there! There is some antisocial behaviour but local police teams are visible and reach out to the community. I wouldn’t say it is anymore of a problem than most places in an inner London area. Accommodation is a mixture of owners and renters. It is good for families and young people alike
I have lived here for 12 years and it’s a fantastic area. Great transport links into the city and beyond with at least 2 local train/tube stations. There are a variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and a wonderful independent cinema The Lexi. Queens Park is a 10 minute stroll away with a Sunday Farmers market. Portobello road and Notting Hill are within easy walking distance as is the Grand Union canal. There’s a local sports centre, good local schools and I honestly can’t think of anything that’s missing! I love it here
There is a lot of traffic but there is a good link of buses and trains
The area is suitable for children as there are a lot of nearby parks and schools and other children for them to play with
There is a lot of traffic but there is a good link of buses and trains. Trains are the most reliable during busy times
There isn’t much parking unless you have a resident permit otherwise you have to pay a lot of money for parking which is a negative
There are a lot of fast food places and local supermarkets in the area. There is also a big gym with a swimming pool. However, there is a lack of open space as its not too far from central so its a busy area but transport is really good
Absolutely excellent transport links around the area

You have a communal feel in our road. People seem to know each other and look out for each other.

The community spirit is what I like most and there is an increasingly progressive feel to the area with the Imperial College campus nearby.
