VILLAGE-LIKE IN ITS INTIMACY BUT METROPOLITAN IN ITS LOCATION AND RESIDENTS, BROOK GREEN OFFERS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
The residents of Brook Green have a justifiable pride and love for their local area. Nestled between the two vibrant and cosmopolitan areas of Shepherds Bush and Hammersmith, it is easy to drive past the residential roads of Brook Green without appreciating the depth of community feeling that lies in this seemingly quieter neighbourhood.
With a mix of elegant Georgian, Victorian and newly built properties, Brook Green attracts families, couples and young professionals in equal measure. Well-respected schools, both private and state, add to the appeal. Brook Green itself has tennis courts and a playground, and is the location of outdoor community events. Running through the heart of Brook Green is Shepherds Bush Road. With gastro-pubs, restaurants, elegant independent shops, gyms, family run hotels and a supermarket tucked behind the main road, residents have everything they need on their doorstep.
Cosmopolitan Life around Brook Green
Westfield London is a short walk up Shepherds Bush Road – the largest shopping centre in the UK and Europe. A newly opened John Lewis sits alongside funkier stores such as Urban Outfitters and Diesel, as well as more exclusive brands such as Prada and Burberry. Late night opening hours, a multiscreen cinema, KidZania and an abundant choice of both indoor and outdoor restaurants ensures there is something for everyone.
Branching off Shepherds Bush Green are the culturally diverse Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road. In contrast to the sheen of Westfield, the roads are brimming with Middle Eastern restaurants, green grocers, specialist food stores and a large number of high quality fabric shops. Bush Theatre and Bush Hall on Uxbridge Road are renowned as intimate venues for theatre and music. Shepherds Bush Empire, on the green itself, is world famous with some of the most celebrated bands performing there regularly. Running between Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road is Shepherds Bush Market. First opened in 1914, its stall holders sell everything from homemade cooked food and fresh produce to household goods, clothing and music.
Stroll south down Shepherds Bush Road and you are in the heart of buzzing Hammersmith with high street shops, Hammersmith Apollo, The Lyric Theatre, numerous restaurants, bars and pubs all a short walk from the beautiful Thames path. With pubs and restaurants situated along the river, it’s easy to feel that you have been transported far from the hustle and bustle of London life. The Thames path is the perfect place to while away a sunny afternoon, take a walk or have your daily run.

Whether you work in The City, Hoxton or in one of the headquarters of a multinational based out of London, Brook Green is perfectly situated for commuters.
For all these reasons and more, Brook Green and Hammersmith are worth serious consideration when purchasing your new home, whether that be a house or a flat.
