Kensington Tops Property Rich List

Kensington in west London has come top of a property rich list, where an iPad-sized floor space costs more than £550.

House prices in Kensington typically stand at £1.87 million, an increase of 5% or more than £90,000 on a year ago, according to property search website Zoopla.

Kensington is also home to Britain's most expensive street, Kensington Palace Gardens, where the average home is worth the princely sum of £22.17 million, the study found.
