If you live in Hammersmith it’s likely that you’ve visited Hammersmith Apollo, which for many decades has been a magnet for world famous artists to perform at. Indeed Kate Bush recently chose it as the venue for her first live concerts in almost 35 years. The building has just received a special annual Environment Award, celebrating the work of innovative architects, for the refurbishment of its stunning art deco interior.

Many famous people are from Hammersmith including Lily Allen, Hugh Grant, Daniel Radcliffe, Helen Mirren, Benedict Cumberbatch and ‘Top Gear’s’ James May. New ‘Top Gear’ host Chris Evans also filmed his ‘TFI Friday’ show on the banks of the Thames in Hammersmith.
