Kensal Green - London at its hippest

Situated in north-west London, Kensal Green has been on the rise for some time. Wealthy, smart, cool and loved by the media - Vogue once called one of its streets 'the hippest street in London'. Kensal Green is becoming very popular with fashion-conscious celebrities, with Rita Ora, Lily Allen and Sophie Dahl among its residents.

Kensal Green also has great transport links - Maida Vale, Paddington, Notting Hill and Kensington are all easy to get to.
