Hammersmith is a district in West London, and one of it’s key commercial and employment centres. Hammersmith has a thriving social centre, with many leisure activities alongside the pedestrianised riverside, containing pubs, rowing clubs, and a park, Furnival Gardens. The municipal park, Ravenscourt, is to the west of the centre, with tennis courts, a basketball court, bowling greens, paddling pools and playgrounds. The West London Penguin Swimming and Water Polo Club is based at Hammersmith, as is the London Corinthian Sailing Club.
In 1745, the Vineyard Nursery was established by James Lee and Lewis Kennedy, and introduced a large number of new plants to England, including the standard rose tree and the fuschia.
A notable landmark is ‘The Ark’, an office building designed by Ralph Erskine, which was completed in 1992, and is built to resemble a large ship.
Several Hammersmith pubs are listed buildings of architectural interest, including The Black Lion, the Dove, The George, and The Swan. The Riverside Studios was once a BBC studio used for TV productions, but is now a performance space, cinema, and bar/cafe. Other entertainment venues include the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, and the Hammersmith Apollo.
American broadcasters NBC and ABC both have their London news bureau in Hammersmith.
