Hotel Vicinity:Nearest: Tube Station: Shepherd"s Bush Market 281 yards (256 metres), Railway Station: Shepherds Bush 0.2 miles (0.3 km), Motorway: M4 Junction 1 2.6 miles (4.2 km). There are 4 tube (underground) stations within half a mile (0.8 km). Only 100 yards from Shepherds Bush Green means the Holland Park Hotel is well placed for the mega shopping area that is Shepherds Bush and White City. Home to the massive Westfield Shopping Mall which is just 200 yards from the hotel. Westfield has literally 100's of shops and stores all under cover with a large number of restaurants too. Shepherds Bush Green itself is a busy High Street Shopping area (including fast food restaurants) and has its own popular market called not surprisingly Shepherds Bush Market. This area is also home to the major events venue, the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Although the hotel is really located in Shepherds Bush rather than Holland Park as the name implies, Holland Park itself (an actual park covering 54 acres) is just half a mile from the hotel and indeed the surrounding area is referred to as Holland Park. This is an upmarket and exclusive residential area with houses costing in the multi millions of pounds. Shepherds Bush is much less upmarket even though the two areas are so close together. This location is west of central London, some 3.8 miles from Piccadilly Circus. Transport links are good with Shepherds Bush Market station within 300 yards and Shepherds Bush Station only slightly further away. Major bus routes run close to the hotel including a 24 hour service. Within a 30 minute walk are also the areas of Kensington High Street and Notting Hill.
