Nestled between two of the most glamorous neighbourhoods in London (Kensington High Street and South Kensington) sits this more affordable, yet popular and trendy district in the Western most part of Central London - Earl's Court. Victorian properties line the streets of SW5, divided into a number of smaller units and boutique hotels which all add to the charm of the area. During the late 1960s a large transient population of Australian and New Zealand travellers began to use Earl's Court as a UK hub and over time it gained the name "Kangaroo Valley". Although, you will still often find a number of tourists staying in the area due to the number of boutique hotels, this nickname has very much evaporated as the area has gentrified over the last decade and made way for the new generation of affluent millennials.
Earl's Court has great transport links, beautiful garden squares and stunning architecture.Giorgio Atease - Lettings Manager

Honest advice on price even though less than what I previously achieved, very smooth process of drawing up tenant agreements and nice people to deal with. Highly recommend!

Parks & Recreation
In terms of recreation, SW5 is supplied by a multitude of immaculate garden squares. From the huge Philbeach Gardens with its seasonal lawn tennis court, to the pet friendly Bramham Gardens with its tree-lined perimeter and exclusive ambiance; Earl's Court has the most private garden squares per square meter in the whole of London.
There is a catch however, you will need to be a resident of that particular road to get access to these hotly contested keys which keeps a certain prestige about each garden.
Those who don’t have this exclusive access, the Grade I listed Brompton Cemetery is the well-loved resting place of over 200,000 people, a haven for wildlife and actually a popular destination for locals and tourists alike for some peace and quiet in the midst of the City.
Restaurants & Shopping
Earls Court has a variety of cafés and eateries, award-winning restaurants and historic pubs to choose from.
The Bolton Pub, located on Earls Court Road, ‘blends the hip and the wholesome’ claiming to be ‘a vibrant British pub offering the warmest of welcomes’.
Further favourites include the well-known Zizi, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Byron Burger as well as the lesser known but well revered Maroush Bakehouse, Theos Simple Italian and The Little French located on Hogarth Road.
Of course, no truly gentrified area is complete without a Marks & Spencer Food Hall which can be found only a short walk from the Tube.
Entertainment & Nightlife
Earl's Court continues to attract the young professionals and families to the area, with a unique selection of cocktail bars,w hich have recently opened in Earl's Court Road.
