I am grateful I live in this neighbourhood. It is safe, quiet, has some very good local shops
I am grateful I live in this neighbourhood. It is safe, quiet, has some very good local shops, a lot of super markets to choose from, Ravenscourt Park around the corner, some very nice festivals held all year round, and we even have a library very close to us. I also like it because it feels suburban although it is zone 2. Our road especially feels homey and cozy, as the neighbours have been there for some time so they know each other and help with whatever they can. The only bad thing that I noticed in the area is a serial stubbing that proved to be a war between gangs a few roads to the north.
Thank god that is the best part as Askew Road is well connected to both Shepherd's Bush Market station Hammersmith and Circle lines), Shepherd's Bush station(Central Line) and Hammersmith station(Piccadilly and District lines). Furthermore, because Shepherd's Bush is very close to central London, there are frequent buses that can take you both to central and western London conveniently and quite fast(Approximately half an hour to Piccadilly Circus). So in a few words I would say that Shepherd's Bush, is one of the most well connected regions I have seen in London.
I really consider myself lucky of the street I live in. The residents are mainly families that own the houses, living a peaceful and quiet life. As a result-apart from some teens that go crazy- there is no disturbance or anti social behaviour spotted at any time. Not many cars passing by or drunk people shouting in the middle of the night. In order to describe it I will just tell you that now that it is hot, I sleep with open windows and the only thing I can hear is birds!! As for the parking, I don't have a car myself but one of my housemates has, and he is finding parking near our house to be quite an easy job. Most of the times he finds parking in front of the house!
When it comes to shops and restaurants, living in Shepherd's Bush has a big variety covered. I live near Askew Road, where one can find good food from around the world (except for Greek food unfortunately), local shops with quality goods and 3 pubs. If you are looking for green open spaces to relax, Ravenscourt Park is ideal for its' big size and nice diversity. Once can find courts, a pond, a secret garden and even a shallow swimming pool for kids (sort of a built in pond). Furthermore, the most famous site in Shepherd's Bush is of course Westfield with its' massive stores and and restaurants! What we really miss with my friends, is a pub or just a space with some games, board games and good food! A place where people with these interests can socialize and meet new people. And another thing that would be good, would be some sort of spa or a swimming pool!
The area is fantastic for families with the park being so close as well as several excellent schools.
The area is fantastic for families with the park being so close as well as several excellent schools. It is safe with usual precautions for inner London particularly for teen girls - teen and pre teen boys do get mugged for their phones/ cash. I would say the atmosphere is bustling particularly in and around Askew Road - there are so many choices of restaurants and good pubs. We all enjoy having Westfield within walking distance and it is a gathering point for teens which is indoors in winter and safe. Teens also appreciate the transport links which make it easy for them to travel around and see their friends. We have cats and they are very happy exploring the gardens and there are many dog owners.
Very well located for transport links with buses to Hammersmith and Chiswick and buses into central London. The district line tube is a little bit of a walk either to Ravenscourt Park or Stamford Brook. There are regular tubes into central London with the central line at Shepherds Bush which also runs late at night. Traffic can be an issue with routes around Shepherds Bush Green; across the A4 to Richmond and out of London on the M4 often very heavy with jams and tailbacks. The current closure of Hammersmith Bridge does not help if you need to drive across the river ! Cycle routes are in the process of being improved and are a great way to get around locally. It’s a lovely cycle through the park to get to Hammersmith from Askew Road. In peak traffic however it can be quite challenging and I am reluctant to let my teens cycle in rush hour due to heavy traffic volumes and road rage.
Parking availability is excellent and it is always possible to find a spot on the road. Some newer residents are territorial however and like to park exactly outside where they live. They get very cross if anyone else parks there. Mostly on our street there are families as home owners and then also renters. There are several families who have lived here for many years and who are very friendly. Bin collections are on Wednesday morning and traffic noise is minimal as it is a fairly quiet side road. Noise comes from the house renovations - increasingly common for the purchaser to get the entire house and then spend 12 months refitting. Our neighbours did this and the house opposite has had the builders in for 12 months now.
Lovely independent shops on the Askew Road such as Detour cafe for delicious weekend brunch and weekday lunches.; Adams cafe for amazing tagines and cous cous and Monkey Temple for Nepalese MoMo dumplings and curry. Great butchers (GingerPig) and bakery for fresh bread and pastries ( Laveli). Plenty of choice of supermarkets to top up on milk etc. Very close to Ravenscourt Park where our children loved to play after school and at weekends - it has a paddling pool and sand pit for small children and newly refurbished tennis courts. Theatres at Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush are within easy reach. Probably only missing a bar to go with our great pubs such as The Eagle and the Princess Victoria.
We need more corner shops not owned by big companies.
I like all the shops around my area. Pet safe and friendly.
Rush hour is very packed for those who work 9-5 . Frequent buses, they come every 2-3 minutes. More bins needed around the streets to prevent littering.
Parking availability is good. Many families live around my area. All with kids and there are a few couples. Neighbours are friendly.
Many restaurants around the area. Pubs all over, one round the corner to me. We need more corner shops not owned by big companies.
quite but definitely lack amenities
