There is very little doubt that the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is among the finest boroughs for both living and doing business. Benefiting from a long tradition, proximity to the very heart of the English capital and, of course, from the unique atmosphere here, this Royal Borough has become one of the most affluent and influential parts of the metropolis.
We should also point out to the fact that Kensington and Chelsea is among the most expensive boroughs in England but, as the popular saying goes, it is worth it every penny. The districts that give their names to the eponymous borough are of course the most famous in it too, and property prices there easily go over the one million pounds mark. But that is not such a big problem because there are also places that are equally nice and comfortable to live in while at the same time buying or renting a property there will not force you to part with an arm and a leg. Let’s have a look at three of these areas that are worth some special attention.
Brompton is the place to live
We will begin with the magnificent district of Brompton SW3. It is located very close to one of the most expensive places in the world – Knightsbridge. The borders of Brompton can roughly be defined by the triangle formed by the Brompton Cemetery, Old Brompton Road, Brompton Road and Cromwell Road and Walton Street plus Fulham Road. Even though it is not the cheapest place to rent or buy a home, it is still much more affordable than the aforementioned options. One can even find a budget-friendly end of tenancy cleaning service in Brompton SW3 without much of an effort.
The main thing that should be pointed out about Brompton is that it used to be a bohemian neighbourhood, and one particularly cherished by a wide range of artists and sculptors, especially in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. As you can imagine, a lot of the old-time spirit and character of the place is still very much alive.
West Brompton, which is one of the newer extensions of the core-district, is a leafy area mixing urban and suburban character – something possible only in a borough such as Kensington and Chelsea.

Berrylands has magnitude and character
Another good place that we would like to recommend to you is Berrylands. If you are looking for a district that offers easy access to a wide range of amenities, such as moving services and high-quality end of tenancy cleaning in Berrylands KT5, on top of access to good schools, hospitals, exquisite restaurants, and many other interesting attractions, this is the place for you.
There are about ten thousand people who are currently living in KT5 and if you decide to join the local community, you will not be disappointed.

Even though much of the district is predominantly residential in character, you can easily access every place that you need to be, including a range of attractions, thanks to the extensive public network which includes several bus routes as well as railway access through the Berrylands railway station.
