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.

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.
