Brackenbury Village is a residential district of west London between the Goldhawk Road, King Street, Hammersmith Grove and Ravenscourt Park. It is named after Brackenbury Road in which there is a small parade of shops which form the heart of the village. This includes Brackenburys (Delicatessen & Coffee Shop), The Brackenbury Restaurant, Sisi's (Hardware & Ironmonger), Hepsibah (Gallery & Hatmaker) and Stenton's (Traditional family butchers). The name of the area came from estate agent descriptions,[1][2] with houses in the area selling for over a million being seen regularly.[1] The area has one of Britain's best all-girl schools, Godolphin and Latymer School and the highly publicised Toby Young's West London Free School and West London Free School Primary.

Famous residents include Jayne Hepsibah,[3] Rahul Raswant,[4] Jonathan Powell[5] and Mary Nightingale.[1]
