  WHAT’S LIVING IN Holland Park LIKE?

Holland Park is a beautiful, upscale neighborhood in central London. The area is mostly residential and is centered around a park of the same name. It's popular with familes, celebrities, and others looking for a quiet community with a good location – oh, and who can afford the multi-million pound price tags of property here.

Holland Park is home to some of the largest detached homes you will find in London, though they don't come cheap (it's not uncommon to see homes selling for tens of millions of pounds). Many of these properties have been turned in apartments, so for younger couples on more of a budget, or retirees who don't want a lot of space to maintain, there are some more affordable options.

The park's 56 acres (22.5 hectares) are loved by those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and relax amidst nature. Besides plenty of green space and walking paths, it features a tennis court, athletic fields, a playground, and during summer it hosts opera and ballet performances. 

There isn't a ton happening here. It has, of course, the requisite pub and a couple cafes, and the park does have the well-known Belvedere Restaurant, which is located in an old mansion. That's okay with residents, however: they enjoy the quiet since it's a short walk to the energy of Notting Hill or Kensington.

The nearby international schools and plentiful job opportunities have made this area popular with expats, who tend to work either in financial services or entertainment.

Holland Park is bordered on the north by Notting Hill, on the east by Kensington, on the south by Earls Court, and on the west by Brook Green.
