Behind Olympia is Brook Green - a charming, leafy enclave with a green, playground and tennis courts, complemented by gastropubs, cafés and restaurants.
The green itself is delightful; well maintained with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, and safe and secure for children too.
From Brook Green you can also head to Shepherd's Bush Road for amenities such as a dry cleaners, supermarkets, pharmacies, and hair salons, and Blythe Road for smaller independent shops, with small cafes and restaurants.
Brook Green also has a great pub overlooking the park - The Queen's Head. It's a pub for all seasons, and the perfect place to enjoy a pre-show meal or a post-show drink.
