I wish I could live here forever

The area is a mix of neighbourhoods and different atmospheres throughout. I can easily reach Knightsbridge and Harrods which is always busy and very touristy but I usually prefer walking towards South Kensington into Fulham road or further into king’s road. You will find yourself walking into some beautiful tree lined streets with colourful houses in Godfrey street (reminds me of Notting hill) or red brick period Mansions and beautiful Mews. There are families and dogs and you can casually hear kids playing from some of the best schools in London. I love to walk and hear kids screaming and having fun as it makes me feel hopeful for the future. I am 32 years old and don’t intent to have kids but I love to see them around. In terms of safety I would rate this a safe area with the casual car or house break in which is unavoidable these days but many streets have privately funded security at night time and that’s a bonus.

Transport

When it comes to transport links I cannot complain. South Kensington, Gloucester Road and Knightsbridge station are all without walking distance providing a reliable service all year round. Bus routes 49, 74, 114, 14, 70, C1, 430, 345 are also available at your door covering day and night service. The only issue is the amount of traffic we tend to get between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner. It should be only a 7 minute ride but it can easily take 20 or more minutes by bus or car. It is that crazy so rush hour is a no for me and I’d rather walk.

Community

I live in a garden square tucked away from the very busy brompton road. So, in between Knightsbridge and South Kensington. It is quite and very clean in my opinion. The Kensington and Chelsea borough does a brilliant jobs. Brompton Road is busy at every time of the day and night but being in a garden square changes that and it makes me feel almost as if I lived somewhere else. My neighbours are a mix of owners and renters but I would say mostly renters like myself and mostly Europeans. The main issue we face, however, is antisocial behaviour with fast cars driving as if they were in Silverstone. It produces noise especially in quite square gardens. They wouldn’t do it in Dubai because they can get arrested there but somehow they feel like they can do it here in London.

Amenities

I can describe the area I live as quite central in London. There is a wide range of upscale and long established restaurants from my favourite Italian to Russian, Chinese or Russian all within walking distance. The area is also filled with retail shops which range from fast fashion to luxury boutiques with the likes of Chanel and Hermes. Yet, the best part is the amount of green areas and open spaces we have available which is a true blessing as it motivates me on my morning walks and throughout the day. With tree lined streets, gorgeous garden squares and Hyde park at your door, spring and autumn are truly a feast for the eyes. Not to forget all the amazing local shops offering the best groceries out there from all over Europe. I cannot see myself living in London without those French and Italian delicatessen. Yes, I love my cheese, my DOP Pasta and my extra virgin olive oil as much as my local pub. In the recent years we have seen a growth in cafes but I am missing the wine bars and aperitifs we once had. Unfortunately those little places have moved out of the area but I remain hopeful for them to come back. Harrods is particular popular as well as the Victoria and Albert, Science and Natural History museums for reason I recommend morning visits between Monday and Wednesday. Any other day or time tends to get busy and crowded.

Convenient, diverse, beautiful area

I have been living in my area for 4 years. There is a lot improvement around. Some people nice but some people are rude. I like the area and the neighborhood. When we want to visit to our friends and relatives, we can get there within 10 to 15 minutes. It's really convenient for communication. Not far from the center, there are several hospitals, clinics, urgent cares, pharmacies, markets, shopping markets, and plenty of restaurants and other auto services. We have special flea market too. All these amazing services are very helpful for all the people. Since various people from different countries are living around here, we really need a community center that embraces diversity. If we can get more facilities for community service, we can help each other.

Transport

There are good options for public transportation around where I live. Both Knightsbridge and South Kensington tubes are within 10 minutes of my flat. Public transport needs to be more reasonably priced. If you’re making a quick journey it’s fine but if you travel out of London the train fares are exorbitant. Some larger cities have tram which you can buy a day pass & hop on & off.

Community

The good aspects of my street is its location, its quiet but at the same time close to absolutely anything that I need because its proximity with Brompton Road. There are a lot of families living here as it´s quite residential. One of the complains I have is that they installed new street lights and they are so ridiculously bright that I don’t ned any lighting on in my living room anymore. They are so imposing, far too bright, and not in keeping with the character of the street. Other than that, I have never had a problem with my street. It´s quiet, safe, easy to find parking.

Amenities

There’s literally always something to do as well. Whether it’s a date night, or just wanting to have fun with friends, the borough definitely has plenty of fun options for anyone looking for a good time with good people. I love the variety of food we have. I have lived here for four years and there is always something new for me to try. New restaurants opening up, new dishes, etc. The diverse food here is one of the reasons why I love it.

South Kensington needs to improve

There is something lost in South Kensington, seems that people are moving away fro. It and the only reason we exist are the museums I would like it to be more trendy with new shops and lovely restaurants, not only cafes and prett , our weekends market is so small and lack of variety

Transport

South Kensington Station is a very busy and popular for locals and tourists, its well linked with the picadilly and District line ( but the station needs maintenance, its very dirty ) I would like if one day they can water pressure clean it . All around there is a well distributed buss line, which goes towards white city , Victoria , he city, Fulham etc

Community

I live in a mews so basically families with kids,around the area I have seem is more family oriented, there are several schools and private parks The collection of the rubbish is very good and efficient, however the streets are prety dirty and greasy, I ve seen in Oxford Street they clean it with water pressure. Where i live is very quite , our house is not facing the main road , but I guess fulhsm road and old Brompton road are quite noisy to live in

Amenities

I live in South Kensington, the most popular street is old Brompton road, there sre a few small cafes and restaursnts but nothing high end , they all look pretty shaby and not well kept , dirty streets full of closed business, I would like it to be a little more like the Kings road, in the south ken station there are some restaurant around but they all look super touristy, not very appealing for residents. And there aren't any clothing shops , I have to walk towards the Kings road or John lewis to shop.

It’s quite a young neighbourhood which makes it quite lively - there are lots of students around.
