A taxi driver's guide to Hammersmith

A Hammersmith taxi service you can rely on. Not always that easy to find. Choose Addison Lee and you can guarantee the same level of professionalism we’ve been providing Londoners with since 1975. And with over 20,000 journeys across the capital each day, we like to think we know what we’re talking about.

But to get the most out of this historic west London riverside track, you’ll need more than just an Addison Lee, you’ll need to know where you’re going. That’s why we’ve put together this excellent little guide to the best pubs, bars and restaurants in W6. So you can sit back relax and enjoy the ride.

If Hammersmith is best known for one thing, it has to be its stunning riverside views. Once just a village on the outskirts of west London, it’s now a thriving hub that provides vital transport links to neighbouring Shepherd’s Bush, Fulham and Chelsea. What’s especially great about this particular stretch of the Thames is the way it almost appears out of nothing. In fact, step out at Hammersmith tube station into the cacophonous rattle that surrounds Hammersmith Broadway and you’d hardly know you were just a two minute walk from the serenity of the river.

Even the lively King Street with all its shops, pubs and cafes does well to conceal the still and calm hidden away behind it. But break through the high street and you’ll find your view suddenly transformed as the idyllic waterside walkway peers out over the Thames towards south London. You might even see the captivating Grade II listed Hammersmith Suspension Bridge.

So whether you’re here for a short pit-stop or a long weekend, there’s plenty to do, see, eat and drink in W6. Just follow our Hammersmith guide to all the area’s hidden gems.

And remember – booking with Addison Lee means saving on expensive Hammersmith taxi services.
