Who lives in Kensington?
Almost a third of Kensington residents are aged 30-44 with there being a fairly even spread across the other age groups. Nearly three-quarters of households are one-person households or couples without children. This tallies with the fact that almost half of people living in the area describe themselves as single, although over a third are married. Almost three quarters of residents are associate professionals, professionals, managers or directors so it is no surprize that income here is about a third above the London average. The desirability of Kensington means that it has a whole litany of famous residents past and present, from Royalty and business tycoons to celebrities such as Nigella Lawson and Madonna.
What is the character of the area?
Kensington is a Royal borough in every sense of the phrase. As well as being the location of Kensington Palace, with its famous gardens, the whole area is full of embassies and the residences of top officials thereof. Kensington is also the location of numerous famous cultural institutions including the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum and the Albert Hall (which hosts the annual BBC Proms). In terms of residential housing, Kensington is largely composed of Victorian and Georgian terraces, with a sprinkling of exclusive modern developments. The desirability of the area has led to vast numbers of these older town houses being turned into flats. Because of this, modern Kensington is now one of the most densely-populated parts of London. The demand for property here has occasionally led to this form of development being taken to extremes. In 2012 a flat which was smaller than a snooker table went on the market for £90K.
It did, however, have a Kensington and Chelsea parking permit, which is a hugely desirable commodity in its own right.

It takes commitment and professionalism to visit each and every affluent home, which is why we are so careful about recruitment and training and why we take care to ensure that our rates of pay reflect the difficulty of the delivery area.
