Kensal Rise

Kensal Rise is in a prime location, sitting next to the City of Westminster and surrounded by areas including Notting Hill, Maida Vale, Paddington and Kensington.

Kensal Rise

Vogue once named Chamberlayne Road in Kensal Rise as "the hippest street in Europe" thanks to the shops, restaurants, bars and cafés located here and the beautiful trendy folk who frequent them. Few other places in the world get this sort of celebrity attention. And if it's celebrity-status isn’t enough to convince you to move here, surveys and censuses have shown that the inhabitants of Kensal Rise are younger and smarter than the average Londoner. Kensal Rise is in a prime location, sitting next to the City of Westminster and surrounded by areas including Notting Hill, Maida Vale, Paddington and Kensington. One of the main reasons why it's such a popular area to live in is the great transport links. Kensal Rise station provides connections through to Richmond and Clapham while Kensal Green tube station is on the Bakerloo line and a 20 minute journey from Oxford Circus. There are plenty of bus services and, for those feeling a little more athletic, there's a bike path running along the canal from Kensal Rise to Paddington.

The coffee here is a great and the triple choc brownies are even better.

Paradise By Way of Kensal Green

With the motto of ‘Home of the restless and the eclectic’ it is little wonder why Paradise attracts the most beautiful people of Kensal Rise. A glorious restaurant/bar/pub serving some of London’s finest food and best ales. It's a great place for a night out, especially if you want dinner first. All the rooms have a fun and unique feel so it's the perfect location to hire a room for a special occasion (trust us, it's a showstopper). Come for Sunday lunch or dinner on a Saturday then stay late to make the most of the famously talented in house DJ's. At weekends this place comes alive with live music, DJs and cult film nights during the week.
