in close proximity to goldhawk road, most of the places south of it and the streets off shepherds bush road.
They're still reeling from it.
Shepherds Bush'd be a good place to live too - brilliant for transport and good for local amenties.
Not necessarily the most visually pleasing area (except by the river in Hammersmith where it's awesome for drinking outside pubs in the summer) but I'd definitely say a good place to live.
is awful - Shepherd's bush is an alright place to live though.
that is all.
transport wise. there are loads of buses and a decent enough nightbus home that goes all the way down oxford st, also the 94 (24hour) that goes to piccadilly.
there are two tube stations (though one may be temporarily closed because of the new shopping centre they're building)
it's about a half hour walk to hammersmith, depending on where you live, where there is a large Tesco, and a high street with all the usual shops.
shepherds bush currently has a small shopping centre with a Vue and a wetherspoons and some other shops, and a Morrisons.
there are quite a few decent bars, including Ginglik, Vesbar...
pubs like the defectors weld, the goldhawk.
many varied restaurants of all different types including my favourite italian in london.
causing travel chaos. good luck.
shepherds bush station
it's a big place and definitely not a shithole. the areas by the river are amongst the most desirable areas to live anywhere in london. king street, the main shopping area, is grotty and horrible but has its uses.
as for shepherds bush, it depends... you get very nice streets right next door to awful ones. i know the area horribly well, though - so if you suggest a street i can probably tell you if it's ok.
also, a warning - shepherds bush's transport links are about to get considerably worse because the central line station will be closed for the rest of the year as of Febuary 2nd.
Everything around the river is good, nice pubs, parks, etc. Oh and a really nice indie-cinema/arts space/tv studio/theatre that has a pretty nice restaurant too.
Other than that, there's not a lot there. Just good transport.
but she can't advise you because she's a fucking bitch who has gone to rough trade east today.
and i mean eventually :(
