The local area is fun, multicultural, vibrant, accessible & never sleeps

The local area is fun, multicultural, vibrant, accessible & never sleeps. It's as safe as you are smart. The area is suitable for all family members and pets, with local parks and plenty green space. Parking can be expensive but is free after 5pm on most rds or 8pm closer to shopping malls. You will never be bored or go hungry in West London.

Transport

Transport is excellent in my area, the only time transport becomes an issue is rush hour as congestion builds heavily on the shepherd's Bush roundabout and wait times can be exhausting. Trains are available on the doorstep or within a very short walking distance. There are bus stops within 100feet of each other and night buses seem plentiful although I do not use them as often anymore.

Community

This area is a vast mix, in particular the majority are likely to be renters as house prices in this area are extremely high and most will not have the deposit nor earn enough to cover the mortgage. If anyone does own they bought the property a long time ago or they share the property to reduce costs. There are not as many students in this area but there's a music school which houses a couple hundred. Anti social behaviour doesn't seem to be an issue, but its all perspective.

Amenities

West London is vibrant and multicultural, the shops and amenities reflect that with its vast array of cuisine in particular. The shepherd's Bush Market has everything you need in one place from clothing to accessories, homewarw to furniture, music and trinkets to food both Caribbean and west African. The streets are aligned with shops and local talent displaying their unique goods and then onto the main shopping complexes which house high street brands and designer. Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith & Ladbroke Grove are the most popular especially during the summer months and carnival. The only thing missing is entertainment in the form of an ice skating rink and bowling.

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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

The area is very safe and great for active families.

The area is very safe and great for active families.

Transport

Three tube stations are a 10-15 minute walk away so it's easy to get out to the rest of London. There are multiple bus stops in the area as well. The main issue is traffic along Goldhawk Rd during peak hour but otherwise it's great.

Community

We mostly have families or retirees living on our block. Parking availability isn't great unless you live there and can use your driveway. Traffic noise is pretty prominent but not as bad as other areas of London. Bin collection is twice a week, and recycling is collected once a week.

Amenities

We have a wide range of restaurants, supermarkets, and pubs along both Askew and Goldhawk Rd, so you don't have to go far to get what you need! Ravenscourt Park is just around the corner, and we've got The Eagle, which is a great place to catch a game.
