I am from London where I have lived for the last 48 years and in Kensington since 1976, now with a partner for the last 24 years. I look after and manage three apartments which are private homes. I am a retired television broadcast executive, with a CV that includes being a BBC television newsreader, a British America's Cup sailor, an owner of a television channel and a volunteer reader helper with Beanstalk. I also created and run an online virtual botanical art gallery for my mother, Barbara Everard. You can find details of all the above on the web. For my own R and R holidays, I like to cruise, preferably on smaller ships such as those with Windstar (Wind Surf, Star Pride) and more recently, river cruising with Scenic. So far, I have traveled from Singapore to Phuket, several times in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean; South America and Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands and through the Panama Canal to Nicaragua and French Polynesia; South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique last year to be followed this year on my first river cruise on the Rhone with Scenic. But, if I were to choose my favourite place to holiday, it would be on the Cote d'Azur at La Napoule, near Cannes
Kensington (and Chelsea) are one of the most prestigious boroughs in London with an exciting array of public buildings, restaurants, pubs and shopping on offer. And, if you cannot find it here, it is right on the dorrstep of all London's major attractions. At Shepherds Bush, a 10 minute walk or 3 stops bus ride, is Westfield, one of the UK's largets Shopping Malls. Kensington is home to the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace and Gardens, the V & A, and the Science and Natural History Museums. Locally, Leighton House is an unusual museum of one of the most influential Victorian artists and, recently opened, is the Design Museum, a ten minute walk away in Kensington High Street.
