Shopping In and Around My Flat in Shepherd’s Bush

In his first post, Seth takes us shopping around his neighborhood, Shepherd's Bush.


After an absolute whirlwind of a first few days here in London, the first chance I had at some downtime, I decided to explore the shopping nearby (yes, I consider shopping downtime). I had kept hearing mutterings of some “huge” mall located right by my flat in Shepherd’s Bush. Someone even reported it to be the largest mall in Europe (a claim I later verified via Google). So I decided to go check it out.

During the under ten-minute walk from my flat to the mall, I passed a myriad of restaurants from all different cultures: there was Middle Eastern, Japanese, English, Portuguese, Mexican, Italian, as well as a long and winding street market boasting all sorts of sights and smells. One street before the mall, I encountered a beautiful row of archetypal Victorian houses. Then, literally in the houses’ backyards, I saw the first glimpse of the mall.
