It is hard to define notional boundaries for South Kensington, but we know it as the commercial area around the tube station and the adjacent graceful garden squares and streets (such as Thurloe Square, opposite the Victoria a
nd Albert Museum).
The smaller neighbourhood around Gloucester Road tube station can also be considered part of South Kensington. Kensington property has something to offer everyone, including top local schools, museums, designer high street shopping and a thriving nightlife.
Tenants like the fact that it’s quiet and residential, with good restaurants and quiet garden squares. The majority of properties in South Kensington date back to the Victorian era, when there was a boom in new developments, along with the Georgian period. The area is dominated by striking period buildings, including town houses, detached houses, period conversions and mansion blocks.
