If you're new to our area, prepare to be surprised. First and foremost, Hammersmith and Fulham is a borough of contrasts. It may be the site of regeneration and redevelopment on a breath-taking scale; it's also home to a historical heritage with 45 conservation areas covering almost half the borough. From the Grand Union Canal and Imperial Square and Gasworks to Hammersmith Odeon and the Hurlingham Club, there's something for everyone to explore and enjoy.
Whatever your interests, it's a locality with plenty on offer.
If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, there's a complete range within easy reach. The fashion and food paradise known as Westfield London is already on the doorstep. At the other end of the scale, you can indulge yourself in the exoticism of Shepherd's Bush Market or window-shop your way down the independent outlets scattered throughout the borough.
No need to limit your energetic output though; the local area is rich in parks (Brook Green, Cathnor Parks, Hammersmith, Holland, Ravenscourt, Wendell, and Wormholt to name a few) as well as privately owned and council-run fitness centres.
We cannot hope to do justice to our local area in the space available here; we're not even going to try. If you want to get a real sense of what it's like to live here, just drop into our office on the Goldhawk Road, the same office that we opened in 1993. We'd love to tell you about why we love the lively yet family-focused and community-centred locality that Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush is today.
