The luxury homes and London apartments for rent in South Kensington are owned by some of the most affluent people in London.
The sophisticated and charming district is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and is frequently referred to as the “21st arrondissement of Paris”. This is due to the reported 300,000 French people now living there, no doubt attracted by the outstanding schools in Kensington, and particularly the renowned French Lycee. Of course, it helps that the whole area boasts a thoroughly European feel, with green leafy squares and stucco terrace lined streets.
South Kensington is also culturally rich with a wealth of famous museums in the area. These museums are some of the best in England, if not the world, and include The Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. It is close to the Royal Albert Hall and the vast open expanse of Kensington Gardens and adjoining Hyde Park, which offers a wonderful programme of events year round.
South Kensington comprises three different postcodes: SW5, SW7 and W8, and these give residents who rent a luxury property in South Kensington easy access to some of the best shopping streets in the city. Bute Street has a wealth of Parisian cafes, patisseries and a famous French bookshop. Besides the array of antique shops and specialist merchants in the area, Kensington High Street boasts upmarket shops. Meanwhile, high-profile designer outlets can be found in and around Sloane Avenue and the Fulham Road.
Affluent families working in the arts or the financial sector and professionals from abroad are attracted to the terraced townhouses, historic mansion blocks and modern developments in the area.
