The upside to living in Kensington is convenient public transportation, nearby parks and diverse amenities.

The upside to living in Kensington is convenient public transportation, nearby parks and diverse amenities. There are also good dining spots and many shops in my street. The area is now geared toward catering to tourists. Overall personally I don't see myself living here in High Street Kensington for a long period of time as it can be very loud at night and might be looking into other alternatives within west London.   

Transport

The area is very convenient to all tube lines (yellow and green line) and several bus stations all over the neighborhood. It can get very crowded sometimes, especially during weekdays at peak hour. The service is excellent: clean, reliable, frequent. The traffic can be annoying at times.

Community

If I could rate W8 as a whole, I would and at 5 stars. However, this is asking about my specific street, which is High Street Kensington, and I cannot rate it 5 stars for several reasons. Being located at the centre of the commercial area, it is a fight to get home driving along any adjacent street is nearly impossible. Often times I find myself walking in the street. The housing availability is also abysmal. I do not often see rentals available because the neighborhood is more business-oriented. On the plus side, commuting is easy because it is a stone's throw from nearly all the main bus lines. You have several restaurants around. Shopping is made easy because you are near all of the shops. Also, despite the convenience of the area, there is a lot of tourist and local traffic which makes it difficult to have a serene, relaxing place to reside in this area.

Amenities

This area is filled with lots of pubs and restaurants, primarily British and Irish, fast-food, coffee shops, pharmacy/drug stores which most are opened 24 hours and delis. I feel like there is not much variety of restaurants. There plenty of clothing stores for men, women, and children, catering to all types of styles. Besides the restaurants and a few delis which are locally owned, all other food and retail establishments are corporations and franchises. There are gyms to work out in and one can run/ bike outside. The gyms are nice and have a lot of equipment to use. Most people do a lot of walking in the area. I personally do a lot of walking and enjoy running.

a great place for families. Lots of people have pets!

I like the fact that W8 has lots of local shops - most things I can buy locally and I believe in shopping locally, if possible, to keep local high streets busy, and the specialist shops tucked away in local areas need our support. Kensington as a whole is a smart part of our great capital city, and I would recommend a visit. There are several schools in the area as a whole, although not in my street, and easy access to parks - Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, so a great place for families. Lots of people have pets!

Transport

Kensington High Street Underground is in the High Street, and has the Circle and District lines, if you walk "over the hill" or take a bus up Kensington Church Street you can reach Notting Hill Gate underground which is on the Central Line. There are also numerous bus stops and the "Greenline" also has a stop in the High Street. There are Several Bike rental stations just by the High Street. Also bike parking if you have your own bike. Currently the high street is being dug up to put in more cycle lanes. To park your car there are Pay and Display bays or the rest is for Residents Parking, NB this is 6 or 7 days a week, Single Yellow Lines are available for visitors after about 6.30 if you are coming to a restaurant for dinner.

Community

Parking - Pay and Display for visitors, or the rest is Residents Parking only, either 6 or 7 days a week. If you are a visitor coming for an evening restaurant, then you can park on a single yellow line after 6.30 Bin collections are twice a week in RBKC (Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) and the streets are generally regularly swept and clean. There is traffic noise on the main high streets, but the sides streets are generally quieter and calmer. The street I am on, which joins Kensington high street is mostly family homes, nearby there are lots of blocks of "mansion flats" and also some modern apartment developments. This is a very international and cosmopolitan area

Amenities

W8 is just off Kensington High Street with a full range of shops - including a great selection of sports shops - for every sport - you can get kitted out. We also have plenty of sensible shops for buying useful things, and several major food stores - including Waitrose, Marks and Spencer and Whole Foods. Nearby along Kensington Church Street there are plenty of small fashion and specialist shops. It is a clean and smart area and very welcoming. Just along the High Street is Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens, and to the West is the Design Museum, we have lots of local restaurants and eateries, and great pubs in some of the side streets nearby. W8 area also has Holland Park with the famous Japanese Garden - a haven of tranquillity, as well and lots of space to walk and enjoy. The Open Air theatre is currently closed, but hopefully it will open again next year.

The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

I dislike the fact that there is no cinema. There are pets s and children. It is quite safe although there was a mugging. The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

Transport

The transport links are good. Several bus routes regularly stop by. There is a good tube service but the tube station does NOT have a lift or escalator. It can get very busy especially during rush hour.

Community

The people who live on my street are all owners and some are serviced apartments. A lot of families live on my street. There is a tiny , pocket handkerchief sized garden. It is a relatively quiet area very near to good transport links and local amenities.

Amenities

There is a park which is very popular called Holland Park. That has a playground. There is no cinema but the shops are quite good although a lot of them have shut down. We like any other area have been affected by COVID -19 so social distancing is in place. There are gyms but no high class restaurants just your average McDonalds.

it feels as though residents are overlooked in favour of the tourists because of the amount of money they bring into the area.
