North Kensington is a strange mix of the types of beautiful homes you'd see in Kensington proper and council-owned public housing estates. Most of the restaurants here are fast food joints and there are a couple pubs, but otherwise there's not much of a dining or nightlife scene. Still, the area is gentrifying so you can expect this to change in the near future. There are a couple great little parks here, including the interestingly-named Little Wormwood Scrubs.
The residents tend to be slightly younger and more artistic and the neighborhood boasts the largest Moroccan population in all of England.
