London area of W6 guide

What to do and where to stay in London's W6 neighbourhood

On the north bank of the River Thames is Hammersmith, one of west London's key transport hubs and commercial and employment centres. As well as being the main centre of London's Polish minority, Hammersmith is the location of the offices of plenty of international businesses and companies such as Coca-Cola, Disney, Pokemon, L'Oreal, Universal Music Group and US Airways. Also to be found in the area is the Hammersmith Apollo, a major entertainment and music site that has been in existence since 1932 and holds over 5,000 people, making it one of London's premier music venues. The area is famous for its pretty stretch of the Thames Path, with many riverside pubs proving very popular during the summer and providing a great vantage point during the annual Varsity Boat Race. W6 is also home to some of the city's most recognisable celebrity names - don't be too surprised to run into the likes of singer Lily Allen, actor Hugh Grant or boxer Joe Calzaghe, who, amongst others, are all thought to be residents.
