Those looking for a property to rent in Kensington are in for a treat. With it being on the western edge of Central London it also contains Kensington Gardens which is a lovely park situated within Kensington. Also based near Hyde Park, proving a very popular area within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Kensington is a very affluent area that attracts the higher status of people including politicians and billionaires. Although Kensington is one of the smallest areas within London it is also the densest with regards to the population.
We are not like the other estate agents that are only interested in selling the property to you without worrying about other aspects. That is why we like to separate ourselves from the rest and provide truly exceptional service.

With many fitness centres and boutique gyms around the area, you have a wide selection to choose from. Or even if you are someone that likes to go for a leisurely jog and enjoy the outside world with Hyde Park just around the corner. Although, for most of us that may not be the case during the colder seasons.
For some of us, we enjoy getting up a little later and enjoying a lovely brunch with either our family, ourselves or our friends. There is a vast selection of choice for this and so you will never get bored. The high street has something for everyone’s taste.
Now we are all guilty of enjoying an afternoon tea and living in Kensington wouldn’t be complete without this. With The Ivy just round the corner, you can make it a regular occurrence.

With the likes of Harrods and Harvey Nichols just down the road in Knightsbridge, you can enjoy a day out shopping. Harrods is home to many designer clothing including Versace, Prada, Gucci and much more.
Don’t just think we are talking about clothes here because Kensington has the perfect interior shops to make your shopping trip more interesting. If you are someone that enjoys a day out looking at interiors and always wanting to add something new to your home. Be sure to check our Mint or Andrew Martin, you will not be disappointed.
This is for all the foodies out there looking for the finest foods in town. With La Cave a Fromage just round the corner you can enjoy the luxuries of the finest cheeses in London. Perfect for when you have guests round, getting the cheese boards out with a glass of wine.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative then Daphne’s is the place to go. They serve beautiful Italian food with wonderful surroundings and during the Wintertime. You will get to enjoy their luxury roaring fire.
I mean, who doesn’t love a little tipple or two when they are out with friends or family enjoying a night in the town. We are certainly guilty of it for sure. Once you have finished dinner it is time to hit the town with many bars, pubs and clubs.
The Churchill Arms is one of the most decorated pubs in London hidden under a camouflage of flowers. Because of the popularity of the pub, do expect it to be a little busy. One of the most exciting places to drink is Barts which is a hidden speakeasy. A truly unique bar that takes you back a few years whilst enjoying novel cocktails.
