I love Kensington because of how innovative and fun it can be.

I love Kensington because of how innovative and fun it can be. It's full of life and interesting places to go to, and you can always find the most unique people in here. Not to mention, the food in W8 is incredible. If there was anything that would need potential work, it would be for Kensington to be a little cleaner on the streets. Renting an apartment is overpriced and it is indeed difficult to afford a house. Nevertheless, the quality of living in W8 is excellent and one of a kind. Overall, it provides a unique atmosphere for everyone and anyone, young and old, can enjoy the amazing attractions London offers.

Transport

Well connected area through the public transportation but the parking and traffic takes away from all the other positive parts of the city. You get trapped from around 10am to 8pm and it makes it very difficult to get anything done at all on the weekends. I think we have really nice public infrastructure and public transportation, and it's very easy to get around places.

Community

Kensington is a nice place to live. I was born and raised here and have seen the area go through many changes. We have nice night life and a beautiful parks nearby. The only downside is the increasing prices to live here. House and rental prices have skyrocketed and it has been hard for locals to continue to live here.

Amenities

There are so many resources in Kensington, for fun, for work, for learning. The area is very bike friendly, which draws people in, but there is way too much traffic which makes it unsafe. The neighborhood is cordial and helpful, full of art and music, and the FOOD IS ASTONISHING. The best bakery is GAIL's Bakery High Street Kensington. The location is close to wide open spaces like Holland Park and Hyde Park and there are extremely popular gyms and supermarkets that are less than half a mile away.

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.

The area is generally feeling safe, at least compared to other central-ish locations in London.
