Theatres and halls, triangles and strip malls, rowdy bars and shopping centers—Shepherd’s Bush is a mumbling west London neighbourhood that doesn’t disappoint. The neighborhood’s 8-acre triangular green space teems with activity and invites pleasure-strollers and passers-by to peruse the cafes, pubs, and theatres along the park’s surrounding streets. When local labels aren’t enough, check out Shepherd Bush’s claim to fame—the neighbourhood is home to Europe’s largest urban shopping complex.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
