Kensington Good & Bad points about living in Kensington  

My boyfriend and I are considering moving to Kensington - we were originally considering moving to Stockwell but have been put off by many negative comments on this website and also the general reviews & statistics of the area/ tube station.

I've noticed there are no negative comments about Kensington in this thread - so what is it actually like to live in Kensington - I'm currently living near the Lewisham DLR station & feel quite safe there & I'm happy to walk home by myself at night even though it's not a particularly 'nice' area! Just a case of using common sense and being a bit wary really :-)

Kensington IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO LIVE IN KENSINGTON.......  

......then do. My wife would give her right arm to move back there . (that was before she married me and moved downmarket and has never ceased to remind me)
Frankly I am amazed to hear Stockwell and Kensington mentioned in the same breath; and i am not a snob - I am on record as posting that I want my ashes scattered over Penge.

The reason you are getting no negative comment is there is little negative to say.

My hot tip for a jewel in Kensington. Leighton House.
Relatively unknown but like stepping back a century.

I could tell you more.  Mail-me

Kensington great area...but its still London!  

yeah kensington is v upmarket but remember that its still London!...and its still cold and cold!....If u can easily afford to burn money by living in an exclusive part of London, then yes....but dont force yourself to live somewhere just bcoz snobs say 'its rather jolly' or 'it is the ''it' place to be''....try somewhere like chiswick, ealing, richmond etc....I live in Kensington and there are many good points...but u have to pay.....I live here bcoz I live in my dads apartment(he needs someone there)...thats it....if I had to live somewhere else without my daqd having an apartment here, I would move my business to spain, not london(london is like wine, only good for u in moderation)!...theres food 4 thought!

Kensington  

I have lived in Kensington for many years. I feel safe day and night. I have lived all over London and am happiest here. In 10 years i have only heard of one attack on a girl at night. My advice - move!

Kensington Reasons to live in Kennsington  

Me and my boyfriend have lived here for 8 months now and we love the area. Every morning I get up and there are beautiful streets and houses all around. Kensington high street is close by where you can find loads of shops, restaurants. Holland park is gorgeous and I will not move out of the area because of this. The library is good. The streets are clean. You feel very safe walking around at anytime. Its so close to Oxford st, Notting hill, Hyde Park. When you're out in the town you can get on a bus which wont take very long to get you back. What more can I say. I love living here and refuse to move elsewhere.

Kensington Kensington Supermarket  

We had a holiday let 3 years ago just off the High St. It was the last week before Safeway was closed down for renovation. I hear it is brilliant. But when we were there it was awful so we would stop at the food hall at Marks and Spencer which is in the arcade at the tube station. That suited our family just fine. There is a huge Tesco at Warwick and Cromwell roads, near Earls Court.
