A very pleasant area to live in with families, it is vibrant with a great sense of community, with welcoming green open spaces and centres
A very pleasant area to live in with families, it is vibrant with a great sense of community, with welcoming green open spaces and centres. Not always as safe as one might expect though as I was mugged by two people on a motorbike who tried to steal my rucksac when I was riding a bike near Blythe Road/Lyon's walk to go home in the evening about four years ago, and as I happened to pass someone who had a very inappropriate behaviour in Girdlers Road in broad afternoon daylight before entering a house about two years ago as I was coming back home... Apart from these two incidents, I find living in Brook Green a good experience given all the advantages of this charming area.
The transport links are excellent, with access to the Piccadilly, District/Circle, Hammersmith and City lines in 3to20min walk, there are plenty of buses routes. On one side, I wish there was a shorter journey to reach North West London faster as some of our family members live there (but I guess going to the opposite side takes longer). On the other side, going from Kensington Olympia to the South West of England is easier and faster due to good trainlinks. The commute to my work is all right, but when taking the Central line, it is best to avoid peak times as the waiting time to get a space on a train coach to central london can feel very, very long. Other than this, the transport links are appreciated.
We find owners, renters, families with young and older children, elderly people, young professionals, couples in our area, so it feels like a real village with all generations. It's nice to be able to gather to the parks and the Farmer's market. What I enjoy less is the noise from cars and motorbikes on the street side, and loud conversations/loud music on the garden side especially during the summer. I find the green spaces enjoyable. Also, the fact that houses have quite a few flights of stairs to reach the entrance doors is not very practical, especially with a pram under the rain when coming back with our weekly shopping, for instance. I'm afraid to say that we pass quite a few dog wastes on the pavement despite the bins and signs, and every now and then rubbish on the floor that stays there several days despite the local council hard work to stop it. But the sense of community, the beauty of the area with its greens, the access to amenities and good transport connections overtake these.
In Brook Green, you'll find a large range of amenities and it feels like a dynamic village. Pubs are part of the daily life and located in residential streets for some, near a park or other shops, bringing spaces to gather and eat/drink to the local community (they serve delicious food, and I've even organised gatherings for special occasions in one of them I particularly like). Local shops are handy (one of them quite pricy, so I prefer shopping elsewhere when possible, and another one offers a wide range of Italian and French cuisine goods that are of high quality). The community centre is at the heart of Brook Green and is able to help many families in varied ways (I have made great use of its courses when my little one was born, and found a welcoming space to meet other parents with their children, learn on parenting and children activities, and even to study quietly), and I recommend it - people do care. The farmer's market is also one of the musts in our area, full of delicious food and drinks, delicacies, meeting sellers and friends in a relaxed atmosphere. There are several nurseries and very good schools in the area, and the green next to the church and lively parish offers a wonderful space (with beautiful huge trees) where the local people gather (there are also tennis courts and a play area for children). It would be nice to find a bookshop, as the nearest ones are closer to Hammersmith or High Street Kensington. Overall, everything is accessible in a short walk, and I fing living in Brook Green most pleasant.
The area is perfect for families and pets, due to the many parks, riverside and it’s a very secure area, super well connected.

My area is strategically located between Hammersmith, where you can get Piccadilly, District line, Hammersmith and City and Circle line and Sheperdbush where you can get Central line for quick connection to central London. Not far from Hammersmith station (15 minutes by walk) you will find Kensington Olympia, for overground connection. There are plenty of busses too.
Our house is just in front of the park, so it’s really peaceful. There’s not much traffic noise but definitely we can hear people passing by and kids playing. We don’t own a car but parking won’t be difficult if you have a residence permit. We have never experience anti social behaviour since we move here 3 years ago , but we have sometimes problem with foxes :) Bin collection is every Tuesday early morning and it works well. We often run out of bin bags though.
My area there is everything you need nearby: shops, all the big chains and lot of independent coffee shops. It is strategically locally between Hammersmith and Sheperdbush, where you can find a big Westfield. It’s an area mainly for family but there are also lot of young professionals who live here.
I like the fact it’s so multi-cultural, there are so many ethnicities which honestly makes me feel so warm! :)
It's very up market in the area the atmosphere towards to is not good at all can't say or do anything have to be quite
There are loads of buses that go from Hammersmith bus station and its great the night buses are really slow
It's all homeowners so if you are a council tenant you will have a problem parking is no problems at all bin men come 2 times a week
There area I live in is great all the shops are all close by no problems we local to tescos sainsburys
There is a variety of residents in the area, buyers and renters - families, couples and elderly residents.
