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.

Wonderful parks; Great sense of community; London's best😁😁😊

The atmosphere is similar to the people who live there and these are the foreigners without whom this neighborhood cannot. The "Chelsea" Football Club HAS A VERY NICE STADIUM.

Transport

So the convenience of this neighborhood in London that this street from this neighborhood called Chelsea that is very close to central London. There is a very large variety of Buses, Metro and so on. The buses with numbers -11 and 211 are through 5, 6 minutes, there is no delay and number 11 has 24 hours of services. The buses are clean and blended with the hybrid system as well.

Community

As I said on this longest and main street in this part of London called Chelsea and Kensington, there are many young people, that is, women who are of different nationalities - English, French, German and even Russian-speaking people.There is a very large variety of coffees that are open all the time as there are many restaurants.

Amenities

On this street, in addition to the local people, the local English there are many people from Italy, France and even Russian speakers. The shops are really wonderful there is a very large variety of goods, there are many attractive women who also this street for shopping. So here is very close is the stadium of Football Club - Chelsea at 15, 20 minutes I would say. Also here is the other London Football Club-Fulham FC.On this long street - Kings Road you can see many cafes and restaurants -аs at Pret a manger or as a Starbucks please.

The atmosphere feels more upmarket than trendy which is probably why there are not many university students.

The atmosphere feels more upmarket than trendy which is probably why there are not many university students. I mostly like how close shops and restaurants are however I do wish the underground was closer to my house. The area is also safe which makes it very suitable for families.

Transport

The closest underground station is South Kensington which is a 15 minute walk away. This is a bit further than most would like however the amount of buses makes up for it. Rush hour is always a problem when trying to go to work for 9am and leaving at 5pm

Community

There is sufficient parking available if you only have one car however if you and your spouse both own a car then you may have trouble finding parking close to your house. There is rarely any noise from traffic but there is always the odd loud motorcycle. Neighbours would tend to be family renters

Amenities

As it is in Chelsea I would say the quality of shops are relatively high. Places such as Villa Mamas are quite popular and I go there at least once every two months. If I want a fast food restaurant then Mcdonalds is quite close. The only thing that is missing that is walking distance is a really nice park.
