    5 Quickfire Kensington Facts

    1. You Staring At My Train?!?
      If you’d popped into the Anglesea Arms on Selwood Terrace, in 1963 it would probably have been best to avoid making eye contact with one table of rather dodgy looking ‘geezers’. Bruce Roberts and some ‘associates’ had chosen this particular spot to start planning The Great Train Robbery.
    2. The Queen Vic
      Born at Kensington Palace, the young Princess Victoria spent much of her childhood at the palace. Following her death in 1901, Kensington was given ‘Royal Borough’ status, which was extended to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in 1965.
    3. Got Any Sugar?
      If you should run out of essentials and have to pop around the neighbour’s to borrow a cup of sugar, you might bump into a famous face. Bernie Ecclestone (former F1 supremo), Nigella Lawson (TV chef), Jeremy Paxman (broadcaster), David and Victoria Beckham (the Beckhams!), Kylie Minogue (pop princess) and Stormzy (musician) have all lived in the borough.
    4. The Big House
      The most famous residence in Kensington, Kensington Palace was built in 1605 and is where non-reigning royals live. William and Kate, Harry and Meghan, Princess Diana, Princess Margaret, have all lived there. It’s also still the home of King George II, whose ghost is said to roam the King’s Gallery muttering, “Why won’t they come?” (his last words).
    5. Top of the Stops
      Kensington has four of the UK’s ‘most visited attractions’; The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, V&A Museum, and The Royal Albert Hall). The Albert has seen performances by the world’s biggest stars and in September 1963 cemented its place in rock history as it became the only place to have ever had The Beatles and The Rolling Stones on the same bill. Twice! Not that we want to brag, but we once saw both Chas AND Dave down our local chip shop. Yeah, rock and roll people!

    Thank You Over’s

    See what Over’s customers are saying…

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021
