Shepherd’s Bush Area Guide

About the Area

A London old-school classic, Shepherd’s Bush is right next to the posh districts of Hollard Park and Notting Hill. Shepherd’s Bush is easy like a Sunday morning, featuring markets, independent shops and famous music venues as well as Westfield Shopping Centre in all its 150,000 square metre glory.

Once the resting place for shepherds en route to Smithfield Market, the Bush is well connected to the rest of London by public transport, including the Overground (trains to Clapham & Willesden Junctions) and four tube stations, all in Zone 2 (Shepherd’s Bush & White City on Central Line; Goldhawk Road & Shepherd’s Bush Market on Hammersmith & City Line).

Somehow managing to escape gentrification, the authentic and much-loved Shepherd’s Bush Market is open six days a week, serving fresh produce, typical market fare and colourful fabrics on the go.

If it’s a post-work pint or a classic dining experience you’re after, opt for Princess Victoria, an establishment beautifully restored to its former glory of a Victorian Gin Palace circa 1929. The vibe is laid-back and classy – all types welcome, typical to the Bush. If you’re in search of good food, try Abu Zaad. Serving the best Middle Eastern cuisine with a focus on Syrian recipes, Abu Zaad on Uxbridge Road is a popular spot for friends, couples and young families.
