It’s unfortunate, because sometimes we get so excited for our move that we can forget about packing. There’s so much to do starting with organising your belongings and acquiring wrapping and containers. Packing can take a while because you never realise how much you own until it has to be placed in boxes. You have to be ready to move large objects and furniture out of your home and have transport waiting for them, which has to have parking permits sorted (more information here
). Then once it arrives at your new address you have to unload and unpack everything.

The area was mostly rural up to the 19th century. It was originally a part of the grounds of Holland House mansion but over time the owners sold much of the land for residential development. Some of the small areas around the grounds included the Phillimore Estate and Campden Hill Square. In the later 1800s, many artist moved to the area including Frederic Leighton and Val Prinsep, as well as many collectors. Holland Park was popular with the upper middle class and has become more upmarket since. The Royal Crescent was designed in 1839, based on Bath Crescent. Many of the houses have since been converted into apartments.
