Cost of accommodation
As one of the more affluent areas in London, rental properties don’t come cheap. Head north of the borough and property prices will lessen.
Hammersmith & Fulham is just west of central London, sitting on the main transport routes into and out of the capital to the west – the A4 and A40(M) Westway trunk roads. Hammersmith is served by several London Underground lines; the District, Piccadilly, Central and Hammersmith & City. Heathrow airport is only 30 minutes west of Hammersmith and the West End is only a short tube ride away.
Vibe, type of people that live there
The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham is a vibrant place to live and work, with a diverse community and rich cultural heritage. Being part of inner London means it is within easy access of all the cultural and entertainment opportunities of the city, yet the parks and Thames-side cycle-route and pathways which run along the southern side of the borough give it a quiet and relaxed feel. It is the 4th smallest London Borough at 6.3 sq miles
The Mitre Pub on Dawes Road is a good place to grab a couple sneaky pints before heading out. For the Aussie/Kiwi crowd there’s a Slug and Lettuce and a Belushi’s near to Fulham Broadway station. If pubs aren’t your thing then there’s a Vue cinema inside the station mall.
Why choose Hammersmith & Fulham
The borough has a lot to offer with lots of good restaurants and places to go out at night. With a short proximity to the river and central location to the City, Hammersmith and Fulham is a popular destination for Kiwis and Aussies.
Despite being one of the smallest boroughs in London, Hammersmith and Fulham has got one of the biggest hearts. The borough has a really strong community of expat Kiwis and Aussies, and it’s easy to see why. With its picturesque riverside location, Hammersmith and Fulham boats a great Saturday nightlife, a chilled Sunday scene, and everything in between.
We live in Putney, along with half the other ‘strayans in London, and our favourite local haunts are Shot Espresso in Fulham (run by Aussie baristas), The Mitre for dinner, The Boathouse for drinks by the river in summer, Toyshop for cocktails with the ladies, and Putney Pies for a late night boogie and the best espresso martinis in town (they also do amazing dinner… funnily enough, pies!).
Putting our cultural hats on for a minute, you’ll also find music galore at the O2 Empire in Shepherd’s Bush and the famous Hammersmith Apollo. Take a wander through historic Fulham Palace and the Bishop’s Park rose and sculpture garden. There’s also a huge Westfield right on your doorstep, with everything you could possibly need quite literally in one place.
