This magnificent stadium plays host to some of the most prestigious sports meetings and music concerts, from international football and boxing matches to superstar singers and rock bands; the line-up is always formidable.
Often described as cosmopolitan and captivating, Notting Hill offers an eclectic mix of artistic expression in every form. Full of life, this part of town is home to the famous Portobello Road Market and the Notting Hill Carnival. Populated with galleries, quirky shops and antiques, there’s never a dull moment here.

SHOPPING & EATING
The go-to West London destination based in Shepherds Bush, is the Westfield Shopping Centre. Packed with hundreds of high street and designer stores, restaurants and a cinema, it’s a place to shop, eat and be entertained under one roof.
For a designer bargain, head to the nearby London Designer Outlet in Wembley Park, which – amongst its many fashionable stores, boasts a cinema and plenty of eateries.
After celebrating victory following the first world war Britain entered an unforgettable decade coined the “roaring twenties”. For those that could afford it, life was fun and carefree. Women over thirty had been given the vote and after working in factories during the war, there was a real sense of independence and achievement amongst the young.
For many business owners, it was a prosperous time and the country seemed to be booming. This led to a change in architecture and interior design with famous hotels such as Claridge’s undergoing expansion and refurbishment in the opulent Art Deco style. This trend translated to many of the factories that were popping up along major arterial roads in West London and Park Royal, such as The Firestone Tyre factory on the Great West Road. These prestigious facades showcased the importance of these corporations, like huge adverts on the roadside.
There was no expense spared when it came to American corporations setting up in London in the 1920’s and 30’s. The large factories set up along London’s arterial highways, which became know as the “Golden Mile”.
In 1931 the Hoover Company commissioned Wallis Gilbert and Partners to build their factory in Perivale as a manufacturing base for the company’s British vacuum cleaner division.
The design, which was incredibly ambitious, took on a grand, palatial facade of huge columns and recessed glass bay windows, but the most iconic feature was the central entrance which was decorated above with a dramatic, geometric sunburst pattern, which sat beneath the huge “Hoover Limited” lettering.
Hoover would go on to open its door in 1933 and employ over 600 staff, whilst continuing to work on extending the factory. The building was included in the statutory list of historic buildings in October 1980 at Grade II*.
After several years of sitting vacant, IDM Properties acquired the Hoover Building in 2015, with plans to redevelop the building into residential accommodation, converting the premises into 66 apartments comprised of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes.
Together with English Heritage and London Borough of Ealing, IDM have invested heavily in the preservation and restoration of the historic features that remain within this iconic national treasure. The architects have combined this with contemporary designs using modern build techniques that will be sympathetic to the original site. Every design detail has been scrutinised to ensure a light, contemporary and functional living environment is achieved for each apartment.
