West Kensington Area Guide
West Kensington is mainly located in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham but parts of it also spread into the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It’s best known as the home of the Olympia Exhibition Centre but we can assure you that there’s so much more to West Ken than that.
Thanks to its location, West Kensington has a wealth of conservation areas and listed buildings, giving the area an elegant and timeless feel. It’s where the old meets the new with gracious Victorian buildings rubbing shoulders with contemporary architecture and traditional pubs next to vibrant modern restaurants and bars. There’s a healthy selection of gastro pubs offering award winning food and craft beers.
And, as you’d expect from such a central location. transport links to and from central London are hard to beat with convenient tube, bus, and rail routes.
Our opinion? The picturesque surroundings, wonderful selection of both private and public schools as well as its proximity to central London make West Kensington a favourite for professionals moving to London.
