“W12 is home! We love it here!”
“Great transport, good cycling routes and Boris bikes”
I most like the transport links to get into more central London, I like the older houses and the pubs and shops
I most like the transport links to get into more central London, I like the older houses and the pubs and shops I can go to on my doorstep. I dislike the crime and drug abuse and think it’s a big factor here. The atmosphere in general is really good, Shepherds Bush is a great place to live! The market may be in need of some regeneration but I believe there are plans for this. Regardless of the crime and drug abuse mentioned, I have never felt unsafe walking down the streets of W12 and this has not personally affected me. The area is suitable for kids and there are many great schools around and great transport links to further away schools for example in Richmond. I have had 4 cats in W12 and they loved it!
The transport links are great, living on Lime grove there is Goldhawk Road tube one side and Shepherds Bush Market the other and so many buses going in all the different directions. You can get to Oxford Street in 20 minutes from Shepherds Bush station on the Central line!
There is a lot of drug abuse as I believe there is a hostel or home for people that have this issue. Knife crime is also quite high as there was a piece on the news not long ago when police swept the Shepherd’s Bush green and found many knives stashed and hidden. Traffic noise isn’t too bad as the roads are not fast. The people living here are very mixed, couples, students etc.
There are a few good pubs such as Brewdog, Sindercombe and Defectors Weld however it would be great to see more outside seating areas along with later opening bars as I feel as though that is what is missing! Brewdog is great for the beer selection and food and Sindercombe and Defectors Weld are good pubs for atmosphere. We’ve also got the Shepherds Bush Empire which is a great live music venue!! China Wok and the falafel in the market both sell amazing street food however the market is a little drab and there’s not a lot I would personally go in there for although Goldhawk Road is known for fabrics so there is a lot of that. There are also more expensive restaurants in Westfield which you can go to...
W12 is home! We love it here!
W12 is home! We love it here! From the market with its array of colours, scents and characters to ultra modern westfield with its shiny floors and polished walls! W12 has so much to offer, you can go on a world wide adventure with out ever leaving this post code! If you do have to leave (perhaps you have a job in a less cool area) you will have no issues finding a selection of different transport routes to take you where you need to go! (Ps. we need more Boris bikes!) W12 you rock!
The links to central London are great, I’m never late! I wish there were a few more Boris bike docks though!
Our street rocks! We live on a quiet street which sees minimal traffic and the only annoying sound to be heard is the odd fox in the middle of the night.! There’s a mix of renters and owners on all the streets surrounding us! But everyone takes good care of their homes and front gardens and rubbish is always kept under check! We love our neighbours! The family that live below us knocked every single night of Ramadan with a different delicious dish for us all to enjoy! And to the right an Australian teacher helped us out with homeschooling projects and made great friends with our dog :) There is so much love , support and solidarity between neighbours :)
Shepherds Bush is a seriously cool place to live! Wide range of places to eat and you can sample food from all over the world! Great parks For walks with your awesome dog! West field is on our door step so we always look fly! If you want to love where u live move to W12!
Great transport, good cycling routes and Boris bikes
no sense of community dirty streets rubbish left on streets properties in disrepair
Great transport, good cycling routes and Boris bikes would be good to have more tubes from Olympia good to increase one way streets
low on parking and park and display machines usually out of service. resident parking permits are pretty useless and limited area
few shops, but 2 great pubs more good restaurants would be welcome shepherds bush green needs a good clean up good quality deli missing
My area is very centrally Located
