You can tell us more about Kensington.

The Worst Things
  • Overpriced property.
  • the prices
  • People are so-oo stuck up, not many female students at Imperial
  • the prices of everything! stupid stupid stupid stupid prices.
  • Snobby residents who think they are perfect. The Libraries.Same snobby attitude to "outsiders"(ie anyone without 500,000 in bank)no matter who or what they are. The frumpily and poorly dressed low paid library staff snobs. Dangerously high and overpriced rents. Ken High street on shopping days before Christmas on a bicycle.Jaywalkers galore! The Evening Standard building and paperback writer journalists!
  • the tourists who think that walking at more than one mile per hour is illegal in seven countries, including england. how many times have you asked for directions only to have someone reply "no anglais" with that stricken look in their eye. or you have a small but enthusisatic band of japanese adults poking a map furiously in your direction clutching their Harrods & Selfridges bags where they patently just spent half a years salary on aglass vase which they could have bough for a tenner.
  • parks here are limited to a few ppl only.....i say make them into car parks
  • Too packed most of the time.
  • Expensive.
