The Dimco buildings are a historic structure in White City, London, just north of Shepherd's Bush. Originally built in 1898, they were constructed as a shed for the Central line London Underground power station.

Today the Dimco Buildings house a bus station, located next to the Westfield London shopping centre, one of the largest in Europe. The Dimco Buildings are Grade II listed.[1] The Dimco buildings were used as a filming location for the Acme Factory in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and later served as the interior of the British Museum in The Mummy Returns.
