Most of the roads around W8 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in W8 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online. For smaller W8 removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and W8 flat moving.
A Little Bit About W8
The W postcode area is a group of postcode districts covering part of central and part of west London. The postal district of W8 covers Kensington and part of Holland Park. The local authority covering these areas is Kensington and Chelsea.
Kensington gained its Royal status on the wishes of Queen Victoria in 1901. There are a wealth of memorials and museums in the area including Kensington Palace, the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal College of Music and the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum to name a few.
Kensington’s superb schools make the area a huge draw for families, who ensure a lively community spirit. Culturally vibrant, the area offers a terrific cross-section of character and sophistication, from the bustling antiques market in nearby Portobello Road to the major museums of South Kensington. The Royal Albert Hall, hub of the nation’s major cultural events, is a pleasant walk away, and Holland Park hosts its own highly regarded annual opera festival, set among the gardens of a former stately home.
The park itself is about 22 hectares in area and is considered one of the most romantic and peaceful parks of West London. The northern half or so of the park is semi-wild woodland, the central section around the ruins of Holland House is more formal with several garden areas, and the southernmost section is used for sport.
