Goldhawk Road derives its name from John Goldhawk, who in the late 14th century held extensive estates in the area. Goldhawk Road is now one of the most eclectic streets in West London and a major East to West route, running the entire length of Shepherd’s Bush between Shepherd’s Bush Green and Hammersmith’s King Street. For local residents the road acts as a transport link, residential street and major shopping hub, ranging in size from small independent businesses to the exceptional Westfield Shopping Centre.
The western end of the road - which borders with Chiswick and Hammersmith - boasts a number of attractive late Georgian and Victorian houses, home to professionals and families who are attracted to the green spaces of the popular Ravenscourt Park as well as the community feel of the nearby Askew Road, being heralded as one of London’s up and coming ‘villages’. The eastern end of the road has a vibrant feel with a mix of small independent shops, cafes and restaurants, and a huge number of fabric shops that the area is famous for. The famous Shepherd’s Bush Market is currently undergoing renovations to become a ‘pop up’ market with a real emphasis on fresh produce and street food, attracting visitors from many parts of West London. For a quick drink after work, a variety of new bars have sprung up, including Sindercombe Social and BrewDog with an astounding 40 taps of craft beer on offer.
Goldhawk Road is conveniently located for transport links, with its own Tube station giving access to the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines and the Central line from Shepherd’s Bush station just moments away. For the motorist, both the A40 and A4/M4 are close by, making it the ideal location for those needing easy access both in and out of London.
The vibrant feel of Goldhawk Road with the variety of amenities on offer, as well as the range of housing stock and convenient transport links, means that the road and surrounding residential streets are popular with young professionals, families and residents that were born and bred in the area.
