Inside Kensington and Chelsea Issue 1

Despite a slowdown in the number of sales, average prices are now 66% above their pre-global recession peak in 2008.

Patricia Farley

The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea is one of London's most desirable areas to live, characterised by a mix of charming mews houses, regal red-brick mansion blocks and stucco-fronted terraces which are some of the capital's most expensive.

The area is most popular with British and Europeans – especially French and Italian – drawn to the area by its array of high-end boutique shops, fabulous restaurants and world class cultural venues such as the V&A, Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum. With something for everyone, this area appeals to a wide variety of residents including professionals, students of the nearby Imperial College, long-term residents and families attracted by the mixture of good local independent, state and private schools including the famous French-speaking Lycée International.
