A taxi driver's guide to Shepherds Bush

Welcome to Shepherds Bush. Or just The Bush as it’s affectionately known by the locals. This slice of west London life is blessed with loads of great restaurants, pubs, bars and attractions to visit while you’re here. Just follow our Shepherds Bush taxi driver’s guide for the inside scoop on where to find them. Outsiders will tell you Shepherds Bush is an area that’s lain relatively dormant over recent years, and it wasn’t until the enormous Westfield shopping centre was built here in 2008 that it started rousing outside interest once again. But speak to the people in the know. Locals or folks like our Shepherds Bush taxi drivers and you’ll soon see that the area has always had an enormous amount to offer. From its more affluent border near Notting Hill and Holland Park, right through to the market at its beating heart, Shepherds Bush is an area alive with a rich fabric of culture and diversity. Walk down the Uxbridge Rd out of Shepherds Bush Green on a Saturday and you’ll see a swarm of blue and white tailing up through the back streets to Loftus Road; home of local football team Queens Park Rangers. This barely 19,000 seater stadium has been a proud home and cathedral to the loyal locals for generations. We urge you to join them for a day if you get the chance. And it’s around this epicentre that so much of what is now Shepherds Bush has grown. In Shepherds Bush Empire they possess one of London’s premier music venues. Shepherds Bush Market has been serving the people of Uxbridge and Goldhawk roads with food and goods for over a century. Even its borders at Hammersmith, Acton and Chiswick hide untold gems. Addison Lee have been providing Londoners with a service they can rely on for over 30 years. And it’s a service we mean to continue for many more. Prompt, reliable and safe minicabs that are easy to book and always in touch. Let us continue that journey with you as we explore our Shepherd’s Bush taxi driver’s guide together. To unearth the best pubs, bars and attractions in W12.
