There isn't too many places that are kid friendly unfortunately.

My overall experience within Kensington and Chelsea, would be considered below average. I know that this is a rapidly growing area of London. It is culturally diverse, great restaurants and coffee shops are all available right in the heart of London. We are close to public transportation so that you can get virtually anywhere you want. However, as a mother of twin boy's, I have always had a rough time letting them hang on the streets without fearing for their safety. There isn't too many places that are kid friendly unfortunately. Within the council community there are not too many resources that are available, and the resources that are available residents do not know how to access them

Transport

One of the main reasons why I love this area so much is its transport links. Everything is so close to us just with the tube, bus or Ubers. The only complaint I have is that High Street Kensington has not a stair-free entrance/exit. This makes it difficult for me sometimes to go with my stroller. Furthermore, there is a level interchange between circle and district lines. As for the cars, the area's traffic picks up a bit, however it's not overwhelming

Community

I like that I am accessible to many stores to shop at. I am also close to public transportation. It's definitely convenient when it comes to satisfying needs. However my street is full of a great deal of noise and I would love to see that change. We could also use some more lighting especially at night. I also dislike the crime that goes on with in the surrounding communities and there are some neighbors complaining on Nextdoor about thefts.

Amenities

This is such an incredible place to be at. There are so many things you can do such as go shopping, eat different kinds of food, watch movies, go to free concerts, drink at the renowned pubs, look at the amazing architecture, and so much more! I love that we are close to all of the best parks in London, including Hyde Park, Holland Park and many green squares. My only suggestion is that the parks could use more lights and better equipment and courts for kids to play.

SW - London’s best place to live

Thus area is fantastic given than you get than you get a residential atmosphere of tranquility, close to all the amenities you want and also very close and accessible given the transportation to other central areas of London.

Transport

Transports are great in the area with bike stations in every corner, abundant buses and different underground lines, including the Picadillly which is also a night tube (on usual basis before Covid). The buses can be the most unreliable part of the transport in the area but I never had major problems. Rush hour can be harsh like everywhere else in London but I find the presence of the District very favorable given it is more spacious than other lines, but cam sometimes he a little slow.

Community

My street is great, aesthetically pleasing and with a sense of neighborhood difficult to find in London. This is given by the presence of an amazing private park for the street which in summer is fabulous and very well taken care of. Even though we are close to a main road, I do not feel any car noise which is also quite unique in London. There’s a variety of residents, from families with kids to students to couples but all very respectful. I believe there is a mix of owners and renters.

Amenities

The amenities in this area are excellent with a range of restaurants from cheaper to more luxury restaurants for any taste and different nationalities. Just the road in front of Earls court comprises of such a diverse range of amenities that give an amazing choice to the residents. Shops can be found mostly in Hugh Street Kensington and are quite absent anywhere else in the area. Food shops are quite abundant whereas open areas are not as common, except for Hyde Park. Bars are not the strong part of the area given it is such a residential zone but are still present.

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.
