Kensington has always been one of London’s most exclusive residential districts. Today it is increasingly so owing to the retention of its green squares, airy spaciousness and unrivalled transport.
When you move here, you’ll find yourself walking everywhere and using buses far more than the tube.
You’ll find yourself orbiting towards Kensington High Street, and going to Earl’s Court Station mainly for long-distance travelling.
Walk away from trafficked roads. For example: instead of walking on Earl’s Court Road towards Kensington High Street, try taking Abingdon Road instead (parallel street to Earl’s Court Road) – it’s quiet and the houses and front gardens are stunning.
