“It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other”

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love the mix of people and restaurants,

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