A Little Bit About South Kensington
The area was largely undeveloped until the mid-19th century being an agricultural area supplying London with fruit and vegetables.
The main roads established in the 1700’s are still recognisable today. Much of the building in the area occurred in Georgian and Recency periods of the early-middle 1800s, with the construction of Alexander Square, Pelham and Egerton Crescents, Thurloe Square and Onslow Gardens.
Following the 1851 Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, an 87-acre area around what is now Exhibition Road was purchased by the commissioners of the exhibition, in order to create a home for institutions dedicated to the arts and sciences resulting in the foundation of the museums and university here.
Adjacent landowners began to develop their land in the 1860s as a result of the creation of new roads and a boom in the development of areas around London, and the absorption of South Kensington into London was sealed by the arrival of the Underground at Gloucester Road and South Kensington. The current railway station was opened around 1868, with the development of the District Railway line. The Circle Line was completed in 1884 and in 1907 the Piccadilly Line was opened, with an ox-blood red tiled station included at the site
Situated in SW7 postcode and within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, it offers a huge range of food outlets, delicatessens, farmers markets and organic shops; perhaps that goes some way towards explaining why the residents of Kensington have the UK’s highest life expectancy.
Kensington’s much-coveted private schools include Thomas’s, Pembridge Hall, Wetherby Pre-Prep, Norland Place, Notting Hill Prep and Hawkesdown House. The outstanding state schools are St Mary Abbots CE Primary School and Fox Primary School.
