Getting around Hammersmith

Getting around Hammersmith is super easy.

Plus, thanks to a nuanced network of buses, tubes and trains – it’s super easy to get to the rest of London too!

Hammersmith is only a few stops away from the bright lights of Leicester Square, the shopping extravaganza of Oxford Circus, and even the regal surroundings of Kensington Gardens is only a hop, skip and a jump away – all of which puts LUMA Concept Hotel London and all other hotels in Hammersmith within easy reach of everything you could possibly need in London.

So, without further ado, here’s a quick guide to Hammersmith’s extensive transport links, and how best to use them during your next visit to London!


Hammersmith has its own tube station which is connected to three lines: the Hammersmith and City line, the District Line and the Piccadilly Line. These lines will become your closest friends.

Being on the Piccadilly line means that you are within easy reach of most of London’s airports. For example, it takes under half an hour to get from all London Heathrow Terminals to Hammersmith. This means that, if you’ve flown into London, you won’t have far to travel to get to the comfort of your hotel!

If you take the District Line, you could get to South Kensington in 15 minutes (only five stops away) and Victoria Station in 20 minutes.

This means that within 20 minutes of leaving your LUMA Concept Hotel London base, you could be at the cultural heart of London, looking at Big Ben or soaking up culture at the V&A Museum.


Located adjacent to the Hammersmith tube station is a well-connected bus station, providing transport to all parts of West London.

Going to destinations such as Shepherd’s Bush, Chiswick, Fulham and Putney, this service is easy and is constantly running – with buses leaving every few minutes until midnight.
