Why move to Kensington?

Kensington: the name basically says it all. Long-established as the home of the rich and famous with all the amenities that entails, why wouldn't you want to live there? Our affluent residents hail from all over the world, making it something of a global village. Plus Hyde Park is right on our doorstep, and London's West End just minutes away by tube.

A little bit of history
Kensington is a rather grand old royal borough, largely due to Queen Victoria. At the time of her birth in 1819 it had 12,000 inhabitants; by the time of her death in 1901 the number had multiplied to over 176,000. In the interim period, beautiful, wide tree-lined streets and garden squares sprung up alongside the area's two parks: Kensington Gardens and Holland Park.

Need to know
No one leaves Kensington willingly. Some retire to the country; others relocate to find more space for a growing family. But everyone would rather stay.

Shopping
Kensington has every shop you could ever need, and more. Our favourite grocers are Manicou Bros on Carendon Road, as well as Chegworth Farm Shop and Whole Foods on Kensington Church Street, which is also home to a great many high street clothes shops. Huntsworth Wine Company and Roberson Wine ' also on Kensington Church Street ' are ideal for anyone with a nose for wine. For minor ailments, the staff at Calder Chemist on Notting Hill Gate are really very helpful. Plus Westfield Shopping Centre is just minutes away. And of course we can't forget the famous Portobello Road Markets, or the Newcombe Road Farmers' Market, which takes place every Saturday from 9am till 1pm.

KENSINGTON: THE NAME BASICALLY SAYS IT ALL. LONG-ESTABLISHED AS THE HOME OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS WITH ALL THE AMENITIES THAT ENTAILS, WHY WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO LIVE THERE?
