Vicinity:

Kensington is the largest suburb in Johannesburg. It stretches from Fairview and Troyeville in the West, to Eastgate and Bedfordview border in the East. It is bounded by Belgravia and Malvern in the South and by Judith's Paarl, Bezuidenhout Valley, Dewetshof and Bruma in the North. Kensington is laid out over the slopes of several koppies. The streets were laid out in 1902, and were heavily planted with trees, which give the area a distinctive, wooded appearance.

Notable features of the suburb include Rhodes Park, named after Cecil Rhodes; the reputable Jeppe High School for Boys and Jeppe High School for Girls and Kensington Castle among others. Kensington is a restaurant neighbourhood, with most restaurants and coffee shops being found tucked away amid the antique shops on Queen Street. There are about 5200 properties in Kensington. Stands are typically 450m2 or 900m2 in size. The suburb was proclaimed in 1902 from a portion of the farm Doornfontein.

There are several shopping centres and office parks in the nearby area of Bedfordview such as the immense Eastgate Shopping Centre, Park Meadows Shopping Centre and the Pick 'n Pay head offices.

Interesting historical notes on and for Kensington.


Kensington is a suburb rich in culture and history. Here is just a sample of the historical interests and facts that abound in Kensington.
The streets in Kensington, a 1904 Johannesburg suburb named after its counterpart in London, reflect a profound jingoism. That was when, after the Anglo Boer War, Alfred Lord Milner and his "kindergarten" of Oxford administrators was intent on bringing Imperial civilisation to the Transvaal. So, today, Kensingtonians, probably unthinkingly, drive along Roberts or Kitchener avenues, named after the Anglo Boer War victors, or negotiate the curve of Milner Crescent and walk their dogs in Rhodes Park.
But there's a more intriguing twist to the street names of this suburb; no less than 83 streets are named after Royal Navy warships. Collingwood Street is named after a dreadnought, honouring Vice Admiral Cuthbert Lord Collingwood who mopped up the French fleet once Nelson had fallen at Trafalgar. Royal Oak Street was named after a British battleship launched in 1892. Barossa Street is named after a cruiser that sailed African waters and was based in Simonstown during the Anglo Boer War.

Schools:

Located in this sought-after suburb are A-list educational institutions including; Kensington Primary School, Leicester Road Primary School, Jeppe Boys and Jeppe Girls Schools and also nearby St Andrews Girls School, Bedfordview Christian School (co-ed primary), Saheti School (co-ed), Bishop Bavin (co-ed), Reddam House (co-ed), Bedfordview Primary and Bedfordview High Schools (government co-ed) and Leeuwenhof School (co-ed pre-primary/primary & high).
