Location Review: Hammersmith London
Hammersmith is one of the best places for business travellers who want to make the most of their time out of the office. With its central location, travelling across London is probably easier from Hammersmith than anywhere else. It sits on three underground lines, Piccadilly, District and Hammersmith and City meaning getting to and from the office, wherever it is based, is quick and hassle free. As well as that there is plenty to do in this corner of the capital, making it a great place to explore life outside the office.
For those who want to go shopping Hammersmith benefits both from the behemoth that is Westfield as well as smaller high streets and markets filled with boutiques and independent traders. Shepherd’s Bush Market is a major draw and is filled with fruit and veg stalls as well as locally sourced food producers. For weekend days out there are the Riverside walks along the Thames. There’s also parks nearby like Ravenscourt and Bishops Park. Fulham Palace is on the doorstep and thanks to the rail connections it is also easy to get out to bits of countryside like Wimbledon Common. For those looking for a little entertainment there are some of the capital’s major theatres in Hammersmith, like the Apollo and Lyric Hammersmith.
Those great connections on the rail mean that, although White City and Hammersmith’s own burgeoning business community are on the doorstep, it’s easy to use the borough as a base and then commute further afield. Hammersmith is home to the European arms of some of the world’s biggest firms like Sony, Universal Music, Coca Cola and Disney. The City is only a few stops away. It’s only 15 minutes from the West End and for those wanting to travel across the UK it’s the same distance to Paddington and half an hour to Heathrow.
