Location description from owner

The England region

West Kensington is a down-to-earth and homely place defined by its diverse array of small shops, fun pubs and multicultural restaurants. This is a predominantly residential area, with a wide cross-section of housing that ranges from impressive Victorian mansion blocks and terraces to flats and tall neo-Georgian townhouses. The big draw in West Kensington is Olympia, a world-class exhibition complex dating back to 1886. Partnered with Earls Court, Olympia stages around 170 conferences and events a year. West Kensington, which counts Mahatma Gandhi and Edward Elgar among its illustrious former residents, also invites visitors to the Leighton House Museum, the studio and home of the acclaimed Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton. The area is well-served by tubes and buses. Trains to Gatwick run from Olympia, and there are easy road routes to both Heathrow and Central London. West Kensington is also close to the various attractions of Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham.Shopping is never far away High St Kensington, Hammersmith and now the new Westfield complex, Europe's largest shopping mall.West Kensington is ideal for visiting London's many attractions and has been said to be an excellent location by our many guests.

Central London/Zone 2

The local history of Hammersmith and Fulham Borough130 years ago Hammersmith & Fulham was a largely rural area. There is evidence of Roman and Saxon occupation of some riverside areas and the manor of Fulham, which included Hammersmith, was referred to in the Domesday Book.A Roman road leading westwards ran from Oxford Street along the line of the present Goldhawk Road. Shepherds Bush derives its name from shepherds who used to rest their flocks on a triangular green in the north of the borough on their way to market up until 1900.The arrival of the railways in the borough was the catalyst for the development of the present day Hammersmith & Fulham. The extension of the Metropolitan Railway to Hammersmith via Shepherds Bush from Paddington in 1864 started these changes, followed by the District Line´s arrival in Hammersmith (1874), West Brompton (1869) and Putney Bridge (1880). As a result, the second half of the nineteenth century saw a huge increase in population, from 10,000 in 1801 to 250,000 in 1901.The accompanying house building dramatically changed the area´s character. Industrial developments thrived including the Osram lamp factory at Brook Green, the J.Lyons factory, which at one time employed 30,000 people and the largest municipal power station in Britain, built near the extensive gasworks in Sands End. All of these have since closed and the sites redeveloped as the industrial face of the borough changes.The start of the twentieth century, saw the White City Stadium hosting the 1908 Olympics at the same time as the Franco-British exhibition was held celebrating the industrial achievements of France and Britain. Building the exhibition´s halls, palaces, gardens, lakes and canals took 12,000 people. They were finished in white stucco - hence the name White City.The exhibition site later became the White City Estate, the borough´s largest housing estate and the stadium was acquired by the BBC for the first phase in their new headquarters, completed in 1990.Other significant developments around this time included the building of Olympia (1886), Lyric Theatre (1888), Hammersmith Palais (1919), Wormwood Scrubs Prison (1874), Hammersmith Hospital (1905) and football clubs Fulham (who started playing at Craven Cottage in 1896), Chelsea (1905) and QPR (1885). The borough´s population peaked at 288,000 during the inter-war period.In 1913 the country's first daylight studio was opened in Lime Grove, although it has recently been demolished to be replaced with a homeless hostel. Coincidentally, novelist Charles Dickens was once involved in supporting a shelter for `fallen women´ on the same street. The decline of manufacturing industry has seen its replacement by a wide range of service industries, witnessed by such post-war landmarks as the BBC TV Centre (1960), the new Charing Cross Hospital (1973), the Hammersmith Broadway complex (first phase, 1993) and the nearby `Ark´ office building (1992).Hammersmith and Fulham had been separate boroughs until they were merged in 1965 following the London.

“Great Apartment, Great Location”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

We had a great stay, and were genuinely impressed with the condition and the comfort of the apartment. It's located within close walking distance to a tube station, and has a range of shops and cafes all 2 minutes from the front door. The owners were more than happy to answer questions over email prior to arrival, and we were met by a very friendly person on arrival! Would happily stay again and have recommended to friends and family.
