About Hammersmith & Fulham
The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham is a London borough in West London, forms part of Inner London and comprises the postcodes NW10, SW6, W6 and W12. It was formed in 1965 by merging the Metropolitan Borough of Hammersmith and the Metropolitan Borough of Fulham. It was known as the London Borough of Hammersmith until its name was changed on 1 January 1979 by the borough council.
The borough is known internationally for the 1908 Olympics, hosted in White City, and for being home to the main facilities of the BBC at BBC Television Centre. Traversed by the A4 Great West Road and the A40 Westway, many corporations have offices in the borough, and a large development is underway at White City with new transport links and a large shopping mall. According to the 2001 census Hammersmith and Fulham has a population of 165,242. The borough has the second-highest proportion of single adults of any borough in England and Wales (55%), and a higher than average for the London area of young adults aged 20-29 (24%).
Forty-four percent of households are owner–occupiers, and 22% of households were listed as “other” – that is, not single persons living alone or families. These are generally two or more unrelated adults living together, such as students or cohabiting couples.
The borough comprises a patchwork of affluent as well as deprived neighborhoods. The unemployment rate is only 5%, although of these, 29% were listed as long-term unemployed. Chelsea Football Club and Fulham Football Club are both based in the borough and play Premiership football. Queens Park Rangers currently play in the country’s second level, the Championship, but still can contribute to the borough’s claim of having three of the nation’s top 44 football teams. Linford Christie, Olympic gold medal winner at 100 metres, trained, lived and has a stadium named after him in the borough. He also attended Henry Compton School in Fulham. There are a huge number of rowing clubs in the borough, the most famous being Tideway Scullers. Many of Britain’s top rowers throughout modern history have trained along the Thames, including Matthew Pinsent and Steve Redgrave who between them have 9 Olympic Gold Medals. Much of the course of the Boat Race is along Hammersmith and Fulham’s southern border, on the River Thames. Read more…
