Hammersmith & City Line Walk – Day 1
The Hammersmith & City line used to be part of the Metropolitan line. The section between Paddington and Farringdon is the oldest part of the underground network. It is just over 16 miles in length and has 28 stations. Later in 2008 the number of stations will increase to 29 with the addition of the new Wood Lane station.
Hammersmith to Goldhawk Road
I leave Hammersmith underground station and head up Shepherd’s Bush Road.
Goldhawk Road to Shepherd’s Bush
Shepherd’s Bush Market is right next to the railway bridge. It fills the short length of track between Goldhawk Road and Shepherd’s Bush tube station.
Shepherd’s Bush to Latimer Road
I pass Shepherd’s Bush Village Hall, some tower blocks and a Vue cinema as I walk along Uxbridge Road.
Latimer Road to Ladbroke Grove
Just outside Latimer Road underground station is a pub with a funny name – The Pig and Whistle.

Walking from Hammersmith to Ladbroke Grove will take you an hour and a half at most.
