Find Things To Do In West London
Welcome to West London
Here you’ll find the right balance of bustling city life and ancient world atmosphere. It’s tough to picture anything close to being tranquil while arriving at Hammersmith on one of the four Tube lines that run through its station. When you take a step away from the station’s busy roads, though, you’ll find peaceful green neighbourhoods, riverfront walks, and wonderful local parks like Brook Green and Holland Park that have evaded development. In terms of cultural activities, there’s something for everyone here, whether you want to see an opera in Holland Park’s open air theatre, browse the vintage shops and stalls of Portobello Road, or go to Kensington Olympia to see the latest exhibition. For a relaxing day of people-watching, visit one of the area’s well-established cafés and bars. As three of London’s most continuously popular neighbourhoods, Bayswater, Maida Vale, and Kensington attract residents from all over the world who live alongside London’s creative elite in this cosmopolitan corner of the capital. Families seldom sell their houses in London, whether it’s a mansion flat in Maida Vale or an Italianate terrace, and some say the stucco terraces of Bayswater and Little Venice, which have access to magnificent communal gardens, are the best-kept property secret in the city.
