A Northfields Guide to Shepherd’s Bush

Well connected on both TfL’s Underground and Overground lines, Shepherd’s Bush is a buzzing microcosm of city life and enjoys a great location in lively West London.

Bustling both day and night, it is a fantastic place to live offering everything from pubs and fine dining, culture and brilliant night life, to great schools, green spaces and excellent shopping with both independent outlets and Westfield shopping centre on its doorstep.

The area has so much to offer but a real bonus to anyone who is interested in moving there is that it is also  just a short ride away from everything central London has to offer. So could Shepherd’s Bush be the place you decide to call home?


Things To Do

  • Shop until you drop at Westfield Shopping Centre, where you will find designer stores such as Burberry, Gucci and Louis Vuitton sharing space with department stores John Lewis and Debenhams plus a huge number of high street stores including Topshop, H&M, Next, French Connection and River Island as well restaurants galore and spaces to socialise in.
  • Have fun at Puttshack and All Star Lanes, both at Westfield
  • Enjoy great live music at the O2 Empire and Bush Hall
  • Take in a show at the Bush Theatre
  • Watch a film at Vue Cinema
  • Take your pick from a vast array of independent cafes, restaurants, bars and cosy pubs
  • Visit the colourful and friendly Shepherd’s Bush Market where you can find authentic traders offering a multi cultural variety of goods from fabrics and fresh produce to a delicious Nepalese curry
