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.

It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other

Overall this is a great community to raise a child. It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other. There is a countable number of minorities in the area and everyone is up in everyone else's business. It is so safe that people can walk alone at all times and not have to be worried. Very active community.  However, the bid drawback are the tourists. They, too, are everywhere. I hate tourists,so it definitely gets to me. I try to hang around outside towards the evening, when most tourists and pop-up salesmen are gone, and it's emptier, quieter, and an overall much nicer area. At the end of the day though, these are very minor things in the scheme of it all. It's really a wonderful area, and I think I'd still live here if I could do it all over again - it's just so accessible and so full of life and rich with culture - it is very, very London, in the best way possible.  

Transport

I use the circle line to Farringdon and it is normally a pleasant journey and very fast. The rly rains are not noisy and they arrive every 1-6 mins. I get that the underground is efficient and nice (or at least way nicer than in many other countries) but it’s still not good enough to be that expensive. Each journey is £2.40 if you don’t have a daily pass or something like that, so avoid it if you can; the bus is cheaper and still nice.

Community

I live right very close to Hyde Park. It's huge and beautiful. I love the vibe and atmosphere of my street. I wish housing was more reasonable in size and pricing. My other complaint is that, not unlike many areas of large cities, it is often dirtier than I think it deserves because of the nightlife scene.  On the upside, my street has many bus stops and transportation is very easy which is a plus.

Amenities

It is very chill, relaxing, and convenient. It's also very safe. You can find restaurants, diners, supermarkets, and anything that you need basically here. But it's not that ideal for shopping or entertainment, of course, because of the high prices. There is a lot of turn over in terms of restaurants and shops due to rising rent levels but overall the stores are of high quality.

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.
