With an array of private schools to choose from, popular parks, museums, shops, period houses and easy access to Central London, W8 and SW7 is THE place to live, if you can afford it!
A cosmopolitan area reflected in its offerings, cafes, restaurants, shops from all cultures means although you’re living in the Royals backyard, you get a taste from all walks of life.
Housing in London Kensington SW7
If the incredible allure of Kensington is calling you, be warned, it comes at a price. It’s been reported that homes in W8 are 40 times the average worker’s salary.
Though there is a valid reason for the price, you’ll most likely be living in a Victorian, pre 1900 property. Whether it’s a still in its original form or converted into a spacious maisonette, well worth the price!
Beautiful greenery combined with rich history gives you Kensington Gardens!
Kensington Palace, currently home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is the main attraction where you can explore life at the palace and learn of British Royal history.
The gardens are also a part of The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk, has an array of monuments (look out for Peter Pan!), the Serpentine Galleries and The Albert Memorial. You’ll never be stuck for things to do.
Art and Culture
The area is home to three of the top museums that the UK has to offer. The Victoria & Albert Museum, a leading museum in art and design aiming to make work of art available to all and inspire British designers and manufacturers.
The final two museums are perfect for family weekend fun. The Science Museum is home to scientific, technological and medical achievements from around the world.
With over 80 million specimens spanning billions of years, The National History Museum will be sure to capture your interest on each and every visit.
From architecture to fashion, The Design Museum is devoted to contemporary design. The museum opened its new doors in November 2016, which now offers three times more space than the previous Shad Thames location. The building itself is a piece of incredible design work, combining its Grade II listed history with a 21st Century look.
Living in Kensington means you have an abundance of transport links and travel options, ideal for London professionals. The borough has 12 London Underground stations including Notting Hill Gate, High Street Kensington and Gloucester Road.
Along with Overground stations such as Kensington Olympia and over 30 bus routes you can be taken to every corner of London.
You may have to travel to neighbouring Chelsea for the right tube for you, but even that journey isn’t long. Especially if you hop on a Barclay bike!
