One of the principal commercial centres of west London, Hammersmith is a lively district forming part of the northern bank of the River Thames. It contains residential areas, its own street market, and a vibrant theatre scene. Hammersmith used to be its own borough before it fused with Fulham to form the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. In popular culture, it’s known for being the home of the Pocket family in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations as well as the birthplace of 17th-century poet John Milton and 21st-century celebrities Cara Delevigne and Benedict Cumberbatch. You can book your Hammersmith economy, family, SUV and 7-seater car hire as well as minibus hire in advance with Enjoy Travel. Watch out for the super weekend car hire special offers.

Stroll around Ravenscourt Park

Start your morning with a stroll through the twenty-one acres of Ravenscourt Park. The park has won the Green Flag Award as a testament to its immaculate maintenance and importance to the local community. The park is part of a nature conservation area so you’ll find beautiful cedar trees lining the tennis and basketball courts, gardens, and children’s playgrounds. Enjoy your morning tea or coffee at The Tea House or W6 Café.

Soak up local arts & culture

Visit the Riverside Studios located on the banks of the River Thames to enjoy visual art exhibitions and contemporary performances. If theatre is something that interests you, visit the Lyric Theatre (also called Lyric Hammersmith) located on King Street. The stunning interior consists of glass walls, and a café and bar for the hungry folks. And if you want to enjoy a live performance, head to the Hammersmith Odeon (also known as Hammersmith Apollo or Eventim Apollo) for concerts hosted by renowned musicians and stars.

Shop ‘til you drop

To indulge in some top-notch shopping, King Street is your go-to for huge malls containing all the well-known brands. Alternatively, Shepherd’s Bush Market is where you’ll find local and independent businesses selling fresh produce and handmade items.

Eating out in Hammersmith

The River Café is known as one of the best restaurants in London. Their chargrilled squid with chilli and rocket or risotto with clams get rave reviews on the regular. Did you know that one of the national dishes of Britain is actually chicken tikka masala? For a taste of this beloved Indian import, visit Patri. If you’re in the mood to try something new, we recommend their ‘thaali of the day’ - a tried-and-tested gustatory treat. Afterwards, perhaps you’d like to order a nightcap at The Dove, the smallest public bar in the country, according to the Guinness Book of Records.
