The Area

Largely residential, West Kensington is a great fit for those seeking a bit of peace and quiet whilst being close to all the action, as the vibrant centres of High Street Kensington and Earls Court are both within walking distance, the area itself has a slightly more tranquil existence than you might find in more well-known parts of London. The area is filled with Victorian terraced houses and a mix of independent shops, restaurants and bars, that give the area plenty of character.

West Kensington is well served when it comes to public transport, particularly if you’re travelling around West London or into Central London. West Kensington station is on the District Line, while nearby Earls Court and Barons Court have access to both the District Line and the Piccadilly Line. As a result, Piccadilly Circus is just an 11-minute journey away, and Knightsbridge only 5 minutes.

West Kensington is close to the Olympia Exhibition Centre, and benefits from hosting the famous Queens Club Tennis tournament, it is an affordable area that’s close to Kensington’s and London's attractions, as well as being in a vibrant community, itself so that you can feel a part of the neighborhood.
