The White City Experience – 5 of our top picks in West London
7 February 2022
White City is a vibrant community in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. From shopping centres where you can shop until you drop, to the bountiful cafes and cocktail bars, you’ll never run out of activities in this West London neighbourhood to keep you busy in your spare time.
We’ve picked our top five local activities for you to experience the best of what White City has to offer:
Just around the corner from Acer Apartments, Westfield London is a shoppers paradise. The largest shopping centre in Europe, it’s home to over 265 premium and high-street retailers including Burberry, New Look & H&M.
If all that shopping makes you peckish, there are nearly 50 places to eat at Westfield London. A charming cluster of 17 restaurants, including Zizzi, The Real Greek & Busaba, run the length of the Southern Terrace and when the weather’s good, it’s a great place to enjoy fantastic food and watch the world go by.
Shepherd’s Bush Market
Shepherd’s Bush Market is an authentic multicultural market packed full of ethnic stalls selling everything from spices to fresh fruit and vegetables. In true market-style, the hot-spot also has stalls selling truly unique finds, from vibrant prints and home furnishings to vinyls and electronic equipment.
White City House
Occupying part of the former BBC Television, White City House offers luxury in the heart of West London. With a beautiful rooftop pool and gym, the venue offers exercise facilities alongside contemporary bars and restaurants serving delicious dishes. In need of some entertainment?
The Electric Cinema in Notting Hill is considered one of the best and most romantic cinemas in London – the perfect Valentine’s Day option. A far cry from your regular cinema experience, the Electric Cinema offers screening of old classics alongside new box office releases, all enjoyed in comfort with super comfy velvet sofas, front row beds, and complementary cashmere blankets.
In addition to sofas and blankets, you can also order hot food and drinks (including celebratory champagne) which are delivered to your seats whilst you watch the film.
Experience the history of design at the Design Museum in Kensington, just a short tube-ride away from Acer Apartments. From the 1,000 items on display in the “Designer, Maker, User” permanent collection, to Adidas trainers made from illegal fishing nets and a refugee shelter designed by Ikea for the Beazley Designs of the Year exhibition, there’s a myriad of interesting and thought-provoking objects that challenge how we should think about product design.
