Nice place to live. Upmarket. Generally safe if you have your wits about you

Nice place to live. Upmarket. Generally safe if you have your wits about you (but not as super safe as it was 10 years plus back). Great place to be with kids or pets. Holland Park and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park max 7 mins walking distance. Design Museum on Ken High St and all the major museums in South Ken just a cab or bus ride away

Transport

Great transport links whether by road, rail, tube or bus. Just be prepared for a zone 1-5 type journey time if you’re venturing way out east or south east. If you’re stuck for cash and travelling to Gatwick or Luton take advantage of EasyBus early cheap fares from Paddington, Fulham Road etc - could save you a bundle avoiding Gatwick Express rip offs

Community

Living 3 mins from the tube with access to 3 lines. Buses aplenty again within 3 mins walk. Quiet residential road of period stucco houses divided into flats. Mainly rented. I own as do others. We’ve got a nice community feel going on amongst those who make the effort and have been there a while. I jump started one of my less close neighbours cars the other week and I’ve been known to “police” the ever-present builders who often seem to appear without knowing when they can work and not. I can’t say everything is rosy all the time. We’ve known of the odd unexpected party in lockdown and sure there are occasions when one oerson’s view isn’t shared by another. But that’s life. Lots of resident parking, probably not enough pay and display bays for those working but there’s no easy answer for the respective allocations - every street has its own particularities. I like where I live. Friendly tree-lined street with amazing views of London to all angles from the rooftops. And I nearly forgot a local tennis club to boot. But you might be waiting a while on the wait list to join

Amenities

What’s not to like? Great transport links to anywhere central and easy access to routes west, north and south ie A40/A4/M4/A3/A406 etc. Easy access to Holland and Hyde Parks to walk, exercise, hang out with friends, take in a picnic, boat on the Serpentine, relax in Holland Park’s Japanese Garden. Writing this from Hyde a park across from the Diana Menitial Fountsin in birds eye view of the oeddaloes on the Serpentine in lovely summer sunshine. Shopping - Westfield London is 5 mins away by car or bus; walk it in 10. Waitrose on High St Ken and Notting Hill plus Whole Foods on the old Barkers site, and more than enough Tesco Metros and Sainsbury’s corner shops to keep your fridge stocked at a few minutes effort. For eat out Maggie Jones for English, rear of the Churchill pub for Thai including take out, Sally Clarke’s for lunch or dinner, The Ivy on Ken High St, Chakra on Holland St for Indian, Balaans. I could go on. Spoilt for choice. Lived between the two parks for over 15 years. Wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Love the cosmopolitan vibe. Got some great neighbours. Just not mad about the million plus inundation over Carnival weekend.

The upside to living in Kensington is convenient public transportation, nearby parks and diverse amenities.

The upside to living in Kensington is convenient public transportation, nearby parks and diverse amenities. There are also good dining spots and many shops in my street. The area is now geared toward catering to tourists. Overall personally I don't see myself living here in High Street Kensington for a long period of time as it can be very loud at night and might be looking into other alternatives within west London.   

Transport

The area is very convenient to all tube lines (yellow and green line) and several bus stations all over the neighborhood. It can get very crowded sometimes, especially during weekdays at peak hour. The service is excellent: clean, reliable, frequent. The traffic can be annoying at times.

Community

If I could rate W8 as a whole, I would and at 5 stars. However, this is asking about my specific street, which is High Street Kensington, and I cannot rate it 5 stars for several reasons. Being located at the centre of the commercial area, it is a fight to get home driving along any adjacent street is nearly impossible. Often times I find myself walking in the street. The housing availability is also abysmal. I do not often see rentals available because the neighborhood is more business-oriented. On the plus side, commuting is easy because it is a stone's throw from nearly all the main bus lines. You have several restaurants around. Shopping is made easy because you are near all of the shops. Also, despite the convenience of the area, there is a lot of tourist and local traffic which makes it difficult to have a serene, relaxing place to reside in this area.

Amenities

This area is filled with lots of pubs and restaurants, primarily British and Irish, fast-food, coffee shops, pharmacy/drug stores which most are opened 24 hours and delis. I feel like there is not much variety of restaurants. There plenty of clothing stores for men, women, and children, catering to all types of styles. Besides the restaurants and a few delis which are locally owned, all other food and retail establishments are corporations and franchises. There are gyms to work out in and one can run/ bike outside. The gyms are nice and have a lot of equipment to use. Most people do a lot of walking in the area. I personally do a lot of walking and enjoy running.

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.

it feels as though residents are overlooked in favour of the tourists because of the amount of money they bring into the area.
