Much of Hammersmith village was demolished in the 1930s. Luckily, the neighborhood’s most important attribute remained intact: its local pub. The original riverside pub is still serving, and it’s a neighborhood mainstay when it comes to the intimate establishments that preserve its small-town appeal. Combine its local lore with the presence of multinational companies and its role as a transportation hub, and you’ve got a neighborhood that exudes old-world charm amid sleek modernity.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Commuter Paradise, Commercial Hub
The area has fantastic transport links - immediate access to overground, central and Hammersmith and City lines, with close proximity to more at Hammersmith. Lively main streets are accompanied by quieter roads of terrace houses. It is a diverse area where a lot of families live - a real mixture of all types of londoner."
Relaxation Along the Riverside
There are many nice places to visit nearby such as the beautiful Ravenscourt Park and the River Thames (you can see the river from my window when the tide is high). For entertainment the two local theatres (the Lyric Theatre and Riverside Studios) both put on great plays at great prices. Of course there is also the Hammersmith Apollo where many renowned events and concerts take place."
