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.

Transport

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!

Community

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.

Amenities

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...

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.
