Kensal Green

Kensal Green shares intertwining boundaries with Kensal Rise, with residents identifying each area based on its proximity to Kensal Green Tube station on the Bakerloo line, or Kensal Rise railway station. Both are prime locations close to central London, bordering the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea.

The area attracts artists, young professional couples, and families, due to its great transport facilities, a number of high-end designer boutiques, and a wealth of excellent schools, including those for American and French expats.
