Shepherd’s Bush is home to the huge Westfield shopping mall (opened in October 2008) and a sprawling clutch of BBC offices and studios including Television Centre. At the area’s heart is Shepherd’s Bush Green (or common), once used a resting point for livestock on their way to Smithfield Market in The City of London. At the western end of the green is the Bush Theatre and Shepherd’s Bush Empire music venue. To the north west is Loftus Road football stadium home to Queen’s Park Rangers (QPR). Tube stations include Shepherd’s Bush (Central line: for Westfield) and Shepherd’s Bush Market (Hammersmith and City line).
