Kensington Snobby?.....................

Why does everyone perceive Kensington to be snobby just because its an upmarket area to live in? People who work hard and like living in nice houses or don't mind paying higher rent to live in this borough are not necessarily snobby, they just like enjoying the finer things in life. Work hard to stay in the area and pay higher council tax to keep the area clean. Just because I like living here I do not look my nose down at anyone. I treat people like how I would like to be treated and do not judge other people. Why should this area and its locals be judged just because its a wealthier borough? State your reasons for this thought? I have not experienced this before?

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.

Witches at Barons Court

Gosh that sounds intriguing but it may just be a tale told to children to explain the houses.

In fact they were specifically designed and built as artists' studios - large windows to give a good "north-light" (lots of light to see and paint by but no direct sunlight) and warehouse-like access to winch in and out large canvasses that would be too big to bring in through the door and up the stairs.

On the other hand they would be just as good for keeping a weather eye out for the state of the moon and dancing under the (nearly) open sky without being overlooked. You could also fly straight out on your broomstick rather than taking off from the front steps.

I am a student at Birkbeck College (Uni of London) studying an MSc Human Development, and part of my course requires me to take part in Infant Observations. While this sounds daunting (and maybe uninteresting for some...) it is not as clinical as you may think! It simply means that one hour a week, for about 18 months (probably no more), a warm and open mother will allow me into her home to 'observe' her (or her husbands/other family members) interaction with the new born. I will literally be a fly on the wall, I will not judge, speak or talk to the baby or the mother. I shall not be making notes (this is the clinical part I am afriad people will think), in fact you are not even suppose to notice me.

I am looking for mothers who are expecting to give birth in November or December, or even January, preferably in Central London. I am based in Kensington.

English/Iranian friends in Kensington???

Hello. I'm a female in my 30's - half English, half Iranian.

I've only ever known the English side of my family, so would really like to correspond/meet up with other mixed - English/Iranians or indeed any British born Iranians living in London, purely for general socialising.

I have no preferences as to your age, or whether you are female or male, but this is a genuine ad for friendship, so any responses of a "suggestive/sexual" nature will be treated as "spam"!!

I believe Kensington has a large Iranian community - hence advertising in this section.

Kind regards.

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!

Moving In

Thanks very much for your message. I knew Kensington was alright but every time I tell anyone they say 'wow!' so it looks like I'm in for a treat! I won't be getting paid very much and so I'm really lucky to be able to move in there - I'm living for next to nothing by local standards, so I'm fortunate not to be much further out. Thank you for the inside info and also for your good wishes.

Sat Nov 05


Wow, lucky you. I lived and worked there for many years. Church St Ken is a great shopping area. some bars, but a hug number of restaurants. Superb axcess to practically anywhere as the tube is right in the middle of the Hi St! You should be in Blackfriars in 30min I would say. You have M&S and House of Fraser along with numerous fashion shops. Your best greengrocer would be Safeway or M&S. I enjoyed every moment of my life there. Oh there is the Roof Gardens which is a superb club just above House of Fraser. They say you have to be a member, however talk nice to the door man and you can get in for £20. I do not play tennis, however I know there is one in Olympia which is just down the road from you.

You are in for many happy times living in Kensington High Street. Good luck

......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.

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 :-)
