We have a lot of nice hotels in the area, so if you are coming from outside of London or even abroad or just want to have a big night out with some drinks, why not stay in one of them.
The Dorsett, Hotel Ibis & K West Hotel & Spa are some of the better known hotels, but there is also some lovely rooms in the few independent hotels nearby such as the Grantly Hotel (50-51 Shepherd’s Bush Green, London W12 8PS – 020 8743 4345)

Firstly, the Westfield Shopping Centre is literally a few minutes away. If you have some time to spare before doors open, we recommend a shopping spree (although don’t go too crazy, you’ve got to carry those bags all night!)
