Where to live
London boasts a number of neighbourhoods, each with a different culture, feel and personality. Popular areas close to South Kensington include Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court, Shepherd’s Bush, White City, Fulham, Putney, Clapham Junction and Battersea.
Imperial’s location guide offers useful advice on different areas of London including video summaries, transport links and average rent per week.
My advice to someone moving to London for the programme would be to find accommodation close to the South Kensington campus. Houses and flats in the outskirts of the city are cheaper but daily use of the underground will lead to accumulated expenses. By doing so you will also be able to enjoy the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea which I personally regard as one of the most elegant areas of London.
