North Kensington

North Kensington is part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and it sits North of Notting Hill, just nudging up against the A40.

Although it shares part of its name with the exclusive Kensington, this area is a little rougher around the edges than some of its uber-exclusive neighbours. It has a less affluent population and a greater mix of housing stock. The area is probably most famous as being the original site of the Notting Hill Carnival and its cultural mix reflects that nature of carnival. There are large Irish and West Indian populations in the area, as well as a large Moroccan community. The lively Portobello Market attracts visitors from all over the world and is one of London’s best-known markets.

The nearest tube is Ladbrooke Grove, which is in zone 2 and is on the Hammersmith and City line.
