The District and Piccadilly wing of Hammersmith station is in The Broadway Centre, which also contains a number of shops, eateries and a large bus station.

The Metropolitan railway originally ran between Richmond and Hammersmith and travelled along a viaduct, parts of which are still visible from the Piccadilly and District lines.

Notable past and present residents of Hammersmith include Bill Bailey, Sacha Baron Cohen, Hugh Grant, Daniel Radcliffe, and Miranda Hart.

Near to Hammersmith Tube station is the Lyric Theatre and the Eventim Apollo (known commonly as the Hammersmith Apollo).

Near to the station is the Eventim Apollo, a major entertainment venue which has hosted numerous world-renowned musicians and comedians, from Buddy Holly in the fifties, the Beatles in the sixties, to Kylie Minoque and AC/DC. Opened in 1932 as the Gaumont Palace it is a Grade II* listed building, and has been through many name changes including: the Hammersmith Odeon (1962); the Labatt’s Apollo (1993/94); the Carling Apollo (2002); Hammersmith Apollo (2006); HMV Apollo (2009); Eventim Apollo (2013)
