Earls Court

Southwest London

Surrounded by Chelsea and Kensington, Earls Court historically was seen as less affluent - comparatively speaking. Though that is all changing.


Historically, Earls Court has been cast as the poor brother to its affluent West London siblings, Kensington and Chelsea. Since the late 1990s, Earls Court has broken rank and is now one of the busiest neighbourhoods. Blossoming with shops and independent cafes, Earls Court is a great area for those looking for more affordable flats and houses in West London or investments in central London.

The gentrification of the area was prompted by the construction of the Metropolitan District Railway in the late 1880’s. Earls Court was swiftly moved from being a rural area to a transport hub and therefore densely populated area. Nowadays, the beautiful garden squares like Nevern Square or Bramham Gardens are appealing to young professionals and families. Squares like these house spacious mansion flats and foster a community feel. The late Victorian houses are also in high demand for bigger families. There is also one of London's largest re-development schemes taking place in a huge patch of land equivalent to about 14 football pitches behind Earls Court station and north of West Brompton station and on the site of the old Exhibition Centre. It will see the creation of 1000's of new homes, a high street and will potentially transform what is a nodal point between Earls court and West Kensington.

The area’s rich history is reflected in the variety of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants on offer. There is a healthy mix of high street names and chains as well as more unique, independent offerings on Earl’s Court Road and the Old Brompton Road. The Troubadour is well worth a visit as the site of Bob Dylan’s first gig in England, as is Addie’s Thai Café for authentic Thai cuisine. In addition to the bustling restaurant and bar scene, there are two fantastic galleries to visit too. Cadogan Gallery is a renowned contemporary gallery, housing interesting modern art while Gallery 286 is located in a private club and exhibits an array of painting, sculpture and holography.

Earl’s Court has excellent transport links with the A4 and M4 leading out to Heathrow and the west and the convenient Tube lines into the City and West End, including London Underground services from Earl’s Court station (District and Piccadilly lines, Zones 1 & 2).
