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...
For me it has always been a great location and there have always been lots of useful shops and restaurants
I have lived on this street since 1972 and it has slowly moved up-market as people were priced out of Kensington and Holland Park. For me it has always been a great location and there have always been lots of useful shops and restaurants, the Bush Theatre, Bush Hall not far away, and a perfect locale to leave as well. In the morning it is about 20 minutes by taxi to Heathrow and it is very easy to get into central London. Our local MP is excellent and Hammersmith and Fulham council works well and for the residents of the borough. My area is quiet except for the occasional helicopter and in my time living here it has only improved.
There are busses on Shepherds Bush Road, Shepherds Bush Green, Holland Road and Hammersmith Road that will take you anywhere. There is the Central Line and the Overground at Shepherds Bush and the District Line can be connected next to the Olympia.
There is pid parking and Permit Parking, the bins are collected twice a week (Tuesday dn Friday) and the Recycling is collected on Tuesday with the council providing the bags. The streets are clean and I think Hammersmith and Fulham do an excellent job . There are owners and renters with the council owning a few houses. My street has only large Victorian houses which have been turned into flats. The houses in adjacent streets are smaller and are probably mostly owner occupied. The rents are a bit too high for students and I imagine that singles, couples, and families with only a few children live on my street. Although there are cars passing, I am never aware of traffic noise as it doesn't warrant the word "traffic". Passersby are mostly people in the neighbourhood.
I am perfectly situated on a broad street with wide pavements in a neighbourhood that has small shops for groceries, cleaners, a pharmacy, and small restaurants. It is quiet though near the bustle of Shepherds Bush where there is the Central line as well as the Overground along with Westfield shopping centre. The Bush has masses of shops, banks, petrol, everything you might want and at the other end there are Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road: two excellent roads with restaurants, food shops and The Shepherds Bush Market. If I go in the opposite direction there is the Olympia with its exhibitions and the Overground and the District Line station. There are buses at the Bush, on Holland Road, and in front of the Olympia that traveling all directions and Holland Park, Shepherds Bush Green, and Brook Green, where there is a big Tesco, are within walking distance.
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
The area is perfect for families and pets, due to the many parks, riverside and it’s a very secure area, super well connected.
