Visiting London

The area of West Kensington is mostly residential and is perfect for those seeking a peaceful environment while still being close to the action. It is within walking distance to the vibrant centres of High Street Kensington and Earls Court, but has a slightly more tranquil existence compared to other well-known parts of London. The area has Victorian terraced houses, independent shops, restaurants and bars, giving it plenty of character.

West Kensington is well served by public transport, with West Kensington station on the District Line and nearby Earls Court and Barons Court stations having access to both the District Line and the Piccadilly Line. This makes it easy to travel around West London or into Central London, with Piccadilly Circus only an 11-minute journey away and Knightsbridge just 5 minutes. West Kensington is also close to the Olympia Exhibition Centre and hosts the famous Queens Club Tennis tournament. It is an affordable area that’s close to Kensington’s and London's attractions, with a vibrant community that makes you feel like a part of the neighbourhood.
