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.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door. I dislike the constant beray traffic. the atmosphere is friendly and trendy, I suppose the overarching theme would be upmarket however this isn't overbearing. I believe the area to be very safe, I would feel happy to bring children and pets here, no concerns.

Transport

Transport links are generally quite good, it helps to be so close to Paddington railway station also. There are a good number of cyclists on the road also. Roads are wide and generally feel safe when cycling. Buses are fairly reliable and there are a few local tube stations all within walking distance.

Community

Street parking is available through the local council at a price. this is not ideal but i suppose it is to be suspected. Traffic can get very busy on the main roads. Especially at peak times and the weekend, but alas this is London. Bin collection is fairly consistent however it is often a mess by the time it is collected. There are often groups of young men hanging around streets.

Amenities

Truly a fantastic location to live. Architecture is astounding, houses and buildings are absolutely beautiful. The is the ease of access to local amenities, a wide array of shops, both food, and retail. An absolutely mouth-watering selection of eateries and restaurants.

It is a great area to raise a family, but be ready to pay for it.

It is a great area to raise a family, but be ready to pay for it.

Transport

Rush hour. During peak hours (7am - 9am) and (4pm- 6pm), during pre-covid times, the tube stations were often full and I would be forced to wait to board a train. Looking back now, it seems unhealthy.

Community

I like the street that I live on as there are plenty of other families and early career couples. Its high end but not too expensive to enjoy.

Amenities

I have been happy overall but I feel like most of the "good" bars and restaurants are congested into a single street. I also think the area is mostly residential other than that area. I enjoy living here but it could use a bit more life.

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