  1. Sherlock: The Game Is Now Escape Room

If you have ever fancied yourself as a bit of a TV detective, then this is the attraction for you. In this interactive experience you must solve mental challenges and puzzles, solving a case worthy of Sherlock Holmes.

  • Sample food from every cuisine on Uxbridge Road

Shepherd’s Bush is home to a vibrant mix of cultures and nationalities, and you can find traditional dishes from them all on Uxbridge Road. From Irish to Caribbean classics, Polish, Syrian, and Afghani – by sampling a taste of each food, it will be as if you’ve truly travelled around the world in less than 80 days!

All Star Lanes is a retro-style bowling alley and karaoke venue, with locations across London, including White City. This is perfect for a fun night out, date night, or a quirky alternative to the typical tourist attractions.

Though technically located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Holland Park is less than a 15-minute walk away from Shepherd’s Bush tube station, or one stop on the Underground.

Now known as Holland Park, this area of London was originally the grounds of a large Jacobean mansion called Cope Castle, which was later renamed Holland House. The building was badly damaged during World War II, and only one wing and a section of the front terrace still stands.

The 54-acre grounds of Holland Park boast many beautiful gardens, including the breath-taking Kyoto Garden which blooms every year in a rich exploration of Japanese culture, right in the heart of London.

Where to stay

When staying anywhere in London, it is always important to get the right balance between the proximity to transport links, whilst also being sure it will not be too loud outside at night. The Dorsett Hotel, Shepherds Bush is a 3-minute walk away from Shepherd’s Bush Market tube station, and an 8-minute walk away from Shepherd’s Bush train station, whilst also benefiting from the serenity of Shepherd’s Bush Green across the road.

Now you know all there is to know about Shepherd’s Bush, where to visit, and more importantly where to stay, all that is left to do is to get exploring and enjoy your getaway.
