Notes:
Kensington is a district of west and central London. An affluent and densely-populated area, its commercial heart is Kensington High Street and it contains the well-known museum district of South Kensington. To the north, Kensington is bordered by Notting Hill; to the east, by Brompton and Knightsbridge; to the south, by Chelsea and Earl's Court; and to the west, by Hammersmith and Shepherd's Bush. Earl's Court is the less affluent but up-and-coming area. The population density has come about through the subdivision of large mid-rise Victorian and Georgian terraced houses (generally of some four to six floors) into flats.
