HAMMERSMITH

Known for being the cultural heart of London there is a rich and wonderful mix of people, food and values filling Hammersmith. Some of the best international cuisine can be found within this special area of London including the likes of Potli and Mes Amis restaurants. Potli is uniquely decorated with a beach theme interior complete with a wooden bar, hessian and beaded accessories and plenty of quirky miscellaneous items. Serving Indian food the owners of this vibrant establishment separate themselves from an abundance of other Indian restaurants in the area. Their dishes include generous helpings of smoky grills and classic curries, the latter of which are rich and flavoursome, arriving in large bowels ideal for sharing. Mes Amis is similarly unique in its interior which hasn’t changed greatly since its opening in 1993. Covered in a rainbow of colours and adorned with Lebanese artefacts on the walls such as hand fans and instruments, this restaurant is a wonderfully personal and individual place to dine. The place is tiny with just one room in which the kitchen occupies pride of place in the centre where chef and owner James performs his magic. A house favourite of regular diners is the set mixed meze of sparklingly fresh tabouleh, houmous and roasted aubergine dips with warm pitta which is all made from scratch to order in front of you. If you prefer to spend your day shopping before you dine, Hammersmith accommodates for this also. Famous streets such as King Street provide yet more varied restaurants including mainly polish and Indian cuisines as well as traditional pubs intermixed with a variety of high street and independent stores. The Kings Mall is located here also, providing further options in dining and shopping destinations.

Key Transport Links

Getting around in Hammersmith is very easy and convenient as transport is plentiful. Hammersmith Tube Station is just a two minute walk from the very heart of the area and the Hammersmith & City station is just a four minute walk. Barons Court can also be reached on foot within 10 minutes and Ravenscourt Park is just a few minutes further on whilst Kensington is a 15 minute walk away. Having such a range of tube stations in the area creates access to many links throughout the city via the District, Piccadilly, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines as well as overground services, bus links and Southern Trains stations so employees who have to travel to work won’t be at a disadvantage by renting an office in Hammersmith.

As previously hinted to, Hammersmith is extremely well cultured in terms of art and entertainment specifically.  Riverside Studios for example is West London’s leading centre for contemporary theatre, dance, cinema and TV. A visit to this wonderful place could entail watching a television show as it is being made or witnessing a world-class play. The Hammersmith Apollo is another such site famous within London and the UK for its renowned performances in film, theatre and more popularly in the modern day, comedy shows. Originally opened as the art deco Gaumont Palace cinema in the 1930’s and later being named the Hammersmith Odeon the name finally changed to the Hammersmith Apollo in 1993. Lyric Hammersmith is also a notable example of influential theatres in the area. There are numerous original productions which take place at this wonderful auditorium, many of which go on to be ground-breaking pieces of theatre. With a choice of either the 550 seat auditorium or the 120 seat studio which is used by up and coming companies, you are definitely in for a memorable show at the Lyric Hammersmith.

Hammersmith Background and History

Landmarks such as the Hammersmith Bridge, the spectacular gold and green construction, are also a must to visit when working in this area. This is the oldest suspension bridge to be built over the Thames and it is now a Grade II listed structure; erected in 1825-27 it is 688 ft. long and 20 ft. wide and provides quite a spectacle. 7 Hammersmith Terrace is another stimulating place to visit in the area. Once owned by the spectacular artist Emery Walker, this 1750s house can still be visited today as an exhibition of his arts and crafts. Since his death in the 1930s the house has been completely restored and provides a truly inspirational step back in time to witness his immense talent directly in his home. Not exactly a landmark but definitely worth experiencing, particularly on a summers day, is that of the Hammersmith Riverside Walk. This is an amazing tour of the most picturesque stretches of the River Thames to Chiswick. Most of the route is completely pedestrianized creating a very tranquil and peaceful way to spend an afternoon losing yourself in the elegant surroundings.

The first record of the name Hammersmith is from 1294, thought to have derived from the old English words, Hamor meaning hammer and Smyththe meaning smithy, representing a prominent area in the metal working industry. The area has seen a lot of destruction and construction throughout its time and was an important location during the First and Second World Wars. Trenches were dug in Ravenscourt Park and Belgian refugees from Dunkirk were given shelter and accommodation at Upper Latymer School. Hammersmith however came under heavy bombing during the blitz in which nothing much survived.  In more modern times the area has been developed as an important location for both business and leisure with the A4 flyover being constructed in 1961 and the subsequent developments seeing the last of the Victorian terraces and shops disappear. This renovation has continued and is still continuing today with many businesses choosing this location as a base for their company’s office.
