PrimeLocation Kensington Guide

Kensington is a highly desirable town and district in West London. Huge terraced houses, set on wide tree-lined pavements are broken up here and there by the occasional world-class museum, internationally renowned retail zone, or Royal Park. There are numerous embassies in the area, with foreign governments taking advantage of the lustrous architecture and buildings that offer fantastic facades.

Kensington is part of the smallest borough in the city, but, despite appearances, is one of the most densely packed. To the north and south lie Notting Hill and Chelsea. Closer to London there is Brompton and Knightsbridge; to the west, Earls Court, Hammersmith and Shepherd's Bush.

Kensington High Street is considered one of the premier shopping destinations in all of London. Served by the iconic Routemaster number 9, it has its fair share of upmarket names as well as many interesting boutiques and independent stores. A recent traffic management experiment creating a 'shared space' between pedestrians and road users has paid off, turning the retail experience into something much calmer and more pleasant.

South Kensington is home to the museum district and attracts millions of visitors every year. Kensington Gardens (which prop up the western edge of Hyde Park) makes for a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of London town. As does the picturesque and peacock-filled Holland Park, further to the west of this area.

This part of town boasts some of London's most expensive streets, with some house prices reaching into the tens of millions. There are also some fantastic redevelopments, as well as some new luxury builds. More affordable areas perch right on the western edge of Kensington, around the up and coming area of Earls Court.


The whole borough has a population of 159,000 - which, considering its size, is quite remarkable. About 80% of residents are White British. There's also a considerable French presence, and Kensington has long been known as the 21st arrondissement of Paris.


As you'd expect, there's plenty of top-notch schooling available in and around Kensington. Good primaries include Fox Primary, Barlby Primary, Thomas Jones Primary and Bevington Primary School. Outstanding secondaries include the wonderful Holland Park School, Cardinal Vaughan Memorial, Ashbourne Independent and St Philip's.


Being so close to the heart of London, Kensington has great transport links. There are three underground stops, all within Zone 1: High Street Kensington, Gloucester Road and South Kensington. The District, Circle and Piccadilly lines whizz city workers in and out of town.

Three main roads cross the area from east to west. Cromwell Road (aka the A4) is the biggest and connects Kensington with central London and Heathrow Airport. Thanks to the temporary presence of the Congestion Zone Charge (now redacted), the area is particularly well served with buses.

Amenities and shopping

You don't get much better than Kensington High Street for shopping in London. But, beyond this thriving hub of recognisable names, the Kensington 'backstreets' have a more cosmopolitan range of smaller, more local shops, cafes and restaurants. North End Road market has a good reputation. As for the nightlife in Kensington, being this close to the rest of London, there’s a wealth of bars and clubs to choose from in areas nearby.

Other attractions in the area include the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
