The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is the smallest borough in London but it is certainly one of the most affluent and sought-after.  Admired as a place to live throughout the world, when international professionals move to London for the first time, this is the area that they often wish to live in.  The team at Kensington estate agents Benham & Reeves known the area like the back of their hand so they can advise on all its merits – it is known for its famous museums including the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as its luxury shops and fine dining restaurants.  And of course Kensington Palace and the stunning Kensington Palace Gardens are perhaps the area’s most beautiful places to visit while vibrant Kensington High Street is a mecca for lovers of luxury goods.

Kensington’s architecture is also outstanding and here you will find handsome townhouses, elegant mansion blocks and period conversions as well as impressive mansions, situated in quaint cobbled mews and beautiful garden squares.
