Hammersmith is in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, click the links to see other regions.
Bordering Shepherd’s Bush, Kensington, Fulham and Chiswick, Hammersmith is central to the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and is only about five miles outside the city centre.

Hammersmith is an important transport centre and is, therefore, popular with businesses and residents wanting quick and easy access to Central London as well as more westerly regions.

It is suggested that there were people living in Hammersmith since Roman times, but it wasn’t until the Metropolitan Railway linked Hammersmith to Paddington in 1864 and the District Line appeared a decade later, that the area’s population really began to explode. Since then, it has become a coveted area with city commuters keeping house prices at a particularly high level, throughout the region.

Hammersmith offers the visitor entirely different experiences depending on which way you turn out of the tube station. You can spend a few hours shopping in the Broadway Centre, King’s Mall or along King Street where you will find discount stores a la Primark and TK Maxx, get a dose of highbrow culture at Riverside Studios or the Lyric Theatre, catch a gig at the Hammersmith Apollo, or enjoy a drink or three down by the river at one of the riverside pubs. The pedestrian-only Hammersmith Bridge at night is one of London’s most beautiful bridges, and there are numerous restaurants serving cuisines from around the world if you head west along King Street.
