KENSINGTON COURT RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION
Our Association represents the interests of the people living in the Kensington Court area of London W.8.
This and the following pages include an introduction to Kensington Court, an explanation of how the Association works, issues that affect our community, news on neighbourhood events, a list of useful contacts, the names of our local patrons and some favourite places to eat and drink.
We tell the story of Kensington Court and feature profiles of people who live and work here. We have a video of some of the architectural features of the neighbourhood's buildings.
And finally there are 4 short videos of Kensington Gardens, the Royal Park that's next door to Kensington Court, in its 4 seasons.
The Living Advent Calendar
This is the second year of a wonderful initiative by St Mary Abbots Church. It is a series of window installations around central Kensington, with artwork and installations inspired by the message "Making Space for Hope". Its aim is to unite our community.
A new window is revealed each day (starting on December 4th and ending on December 22nd) at 3.45pm when refreshments are served and a carol sung.
Click here to see where and when the windows will be revealed.

Kensington Court is just south of Kensington Palace (the London home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, perhaps better known as Will & Kate), Kensington Gardens (the home of the Peter Pan statue) & Kensington High Street.
It hosts 3 embassies and 2 High Commissions, 7 restaurants, 2 cafes and a pub, 2 galleries, 3 hairdressers and a number of specialist shops. It mainly consists of Victorian mansion blocks which were built towards the end of the 19th century.
