Hammersmith & Fulham combines all the very best of London in one borough:

  • a thriving cityscape full of commercial opportunity and entrepreneurship
  • wonderful parks and open spaces from the glorious terrain of Wormwood Scrubs to the delightful Bishop’s Park
  • a two-mile stretch of the Thames flowing under the iconic Hammersmith Bridge
  • seven superb theatres catering to all tastes including the world-famous Hammersmith Eventim Apollo
  • three professional football teams (Chelsea, Fulham and QPR)
  • great connections with 15 tube stations and direct rail links to Heathrow and Gatwick
  • superb open-air markets such as at Shepherds Bush and North End Road
  • the site of a globally-esteemed university (Imperial College London)
  • dozens of impressive schools and a wide choice of property for making a home
  • Europe's largest urban shopping mall (Westfield London).

Most importantly, our greatest asset is our 185,000 local residents- they're a rich diversity from across the world who have made H&F their home and brought their cultures with them. H&F Council is proud to serve them and fulfil everyone’s needs, including everything from free home social care to a commitment to zero carbon emissions by 2030. So it is truly the best borough to visit, work and live in.
