Area Comments

Little needs in many ways to be said about Kensington as a place: if you know London at all, you know it, at least a little. This is the heart of London establishment, at least the part of it that lets its hair down a little. It's also the heart of shopping, the heart of politics, and a wealth of wonderful, often extremely beautiful, property.

Kensington might be the most desirable place to live in London (though others might shout a lot about that). It's close to the best parks around; Kensington Gardens, Holland Park, and Hyde Park are right next to it, and Green Park isn't far. In fact few places are: Kensington has excellent transport links to virtually everywhere.

This is definitely the place to eat, party, shop, and see things. Kensington's own stores are the last word in all the biggest and best brands, whilst nearby Kings Road specializes in smaller stores and even more couture. The biggest and best museums in London are in South Ken, whilst the restaurants represent every level from the cheap and cheerful through the middle of the range to the top of the top in the world. There are wondrous bars and clubs all over the area, both in Kensington, as well as nearby Chelsea, and over the hill into Notting Hill and Holland Park areas. The feel of the place is a little conservative, both big C and small, but it's far more relaxed than many other areas of its general price bracket.

Property here is extraordinary. Even at its most bargain end - the slightly misleadingly named North Kensington - there are beautiful houses off towards Ladbroke Grove, excellent terraces of Georgian and Victorian homes proliferate. There are some ex-council flats and many apartments in this area. But in Kensington itself the speciality is the tall, elegant Victorian terraced townhouse and mansion block. Massive apartments can easily house families, whilst the houses are out of this world. If you're looking nearby to Holland Park itself or to Kensington Gardens, you have to add substantial amounts to already large price tags. All houses around here tend to be extremely fine, and it's hard to find them on the market for long. Larger flats are more likely, or - if you have to be in this neighbourhood but want a little more of a deal -the houses of North Kensington.

Kensington is smart, respectable, and busy - and one of the most desirable and expensive addresses in town.
