About the Neighborhood


Cultural  -  Leafy Neighborhoods  -  Appealing
This area of London offers a fascinating combination of fashionable modern London life and stately, grandiloquent Victorian architecture. Impressive examples of early 19th century in Bramham Gardens & Courtfield Gardens center on lovely residential squares. The recently restored traditional cast iron railings create an authentic Victorian ambience. Collingham Road & Harrington Road are lined with architecturally unique buildings, many currently used as Embassies. The conservations comprising Childs Place, Kenway Road and Redfield Lane contain more modest but quite picturesqe houses painted in pastel shades.
