Hammersmith is in west London and is considered one of its major commercial areas. Situated along the River Thames, it is believed to have been settled during Roman times. A Saxon fishing village, the area had a river foreshore of gravel instead of marshland, making it a popular retreat for city dwellers in the Middle Ages. Catherine, Queen Consort of Charles II started developing the area when she became widowed and built a number of villas along that stretch of river.
In the early 19th century as more houses popped up, Hammersmith Bridge was constructed, which led to further development on both sides of the river. The settlement that grew further from the river, towards Brooke Green, was very low income. The name Hammersmith was first recorded in the early 20th century and it is believed this must have referred to a smithy or forge locally.
Hammersmith is located at the confluence of a major route into central London, the A4 trunk road, making it an important point for commuters, especially those travelling to and from Heathrow Airport. It is the administrative centre for the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Kensington lies directly to the east of Hammersmith, Shepherd’s Bush to the north and Fulham, with which it shares part of the northern bank of the River Thames, is to its south.
Although the area is known for its rather unattractive concrete flyover and commercial centre, there is much more to Hammersmith than meets the eye. Pretty terraced houses close to the river are highly desirable, while more modern developments, serving professional people and commuters are popping up more centrally. Hammersmith is home to a diverse range of people, but it is especially popular with the Polish community, who have a community centre there. Along the river, there are lovely green areas to enjoy and water sports such as rowing and sailing are common sights.
People come to Hammersmith for a range of reasons, entertainment being a top priority. The famous Riverside Studios are in Hammersmith as is the Lyric Theatre and Hammersmith Apollo. Shopping is also a popular pastime with two shopping centres, The Broadway Mall and Kings Mall as well as a great Farmers Market on Thursdays which is a favourite haunt for foodies.
