Kensington & Chelsea: a commercial guide for businesses looking for office space in London
Michael Fraser:

Kensington starts where Knightsbridge finishes. It’s basically an area southwest and west of main west end business district. It’s easy to get to, plenty of tubes there. No main line, but plenty of tubes. It’s largely an expensive housing area with sporting, retail, and restaurants. It’s been that type of housing for centuries. The result of this is that the planners have been fairly tight, and haven’t allowed much in the way of redevelopment, so the stock of grade A or very good offices is quite low. Offices actually can be quite difficult to find here. Many of the companies who do have offices there, they’ve chosen that because, frankly, the owners or the senior executives live in the area and they can walk to work!

What’s good about the area? Well, it’s just very beautiful, well maintained. There’s the Albert Hall, Albert Memorial. Then of course there’s Kensington Palace Gardens, where one reports says you can get a house there for 19 million, another says it’s 35 million. Either way, it’s an absolute snip if it happens to be in your budget.

About Kensington & Chelsea

Offices in Kensington & Chelsea

Located to the west and south-west of the main West End business districts, the Royal Borough of Kensington is home to the Albert Hall, The Natural History Museum, Science Museum ,the V&A, The Royal Colleges of Art and Music and Imperial College London.

Kensington and Chesea are both dominated by residential and retail space – high cost housing and a plethora of shops, restaurants alongside large open spaces such as Kensington Gardens. Traditionally, neither were generally considered as ideal office locations.

However as both Kensington and Chelsea have good communications with easy access to the West End, they have become more popular as cost-effective alternative office locations. It’s no longer unheard of to desire a Chelsea harbour office or an office in High Street Kensington!

Leased office space in Kensington and Chelsea is available – ranging from the very best air-conditioned space down to more modest offices. Flexible, serviced offices in Kensington and Chelsea are also increasingly in demand. However, as supply is short for all types of space, finding an office to rent in Chelsea or Kensington remains challenging. A virtual office, combined with flexible meeting room hire – providing you with a sought after Kensington or Chelsea business address without the the permanent physical space – can be an attractive alternative…for the right type of business, of course.

Increased popularity and acceptance of Kensington and Chelsea as genuine office locations has added upward pressure on rents, but the costs are still notably below those of the neigbouring West End business districts: Mayfair, St James’s, Soho and Covent Garden, for example.
