“It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other”
“The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.”
It is definitely a good place to live in compared to other places in London, but as I have said before, it feels like it's more apt for young couples and professionals.
The demand for houses and apartments in the High Street Kensington area has rised over the past few years, making them pretty difficult to afford. It is definitely a good place to live in compared to other places in London, but as I have said before, it feels like it's more apt for young couples and professionals. Having a family or children in this area can get complicated: the traffic jams, the tourists, the lack of schools nearby, the pickpocketing in the underground... I would recommend moving to a more relaxed area like Fulham or Chelsea if you still would like to live in the West side of London.
I live within 3min walking distance of High Street Kensington featuring the Circle line and the District line. Furthermore, there are plenty of buses that connect to other parts of the city. Transportation is realiable, however we have to be extremely careful these days. More and more pick pocketing is happening recently at the station and it's sad to see this is happening. I have also noted that there is less people working at the station, which makes me feel a bit less secure (especially at night). As for the private transport, I do not recommend having a car unless you have secured a parking slot. This area is great for walks and public transport, not so much accommodating for a car unfortunately!
High Street Kensington is a great place to live in if you like the vibrant atmosphere and busy streets. In my honest opinion, it is great when you are in your 20s or early 30s and can afford the lifestyle and small living space. If you want to have a family, there are other areas in Chelsea that would be better suited for that lifestyle. I currently rent my flat and I am happy with the price I'm paying, however I know that the affordability in this area is a problem that many have encountered. My area is pretty touristy so it is normal to meet people from other parts of the world, I like it.
I love the High Street Kensington area. The energy I get from walking in this neighborhood and the people I met here are one of the many reasons I stay here. There is also tons of great places to eat. The only downside is that we are losing our local shops and Kensington Church Street is filled with international stores...
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.
