Lucy Elliott - Publisher & Photographer
Just a very brief note to say how impressed we are with the way The Kensington Magazine has developed since you launched it a few years back. The magazine does seem to grow from strength to strength and really has to be the ‘Go to’ magazine, for any business or advertiser wishing to make their presence felt throughout Kensington - renowned for being London’s wealthiest borough.
I’m sure the success is attributable your knowledgeable editorial and the fact that you live ’on patch’ and know just about everyone in W8 coupled with it remaining largely uncluttered by page after page of property advertising.
It’s your point of difference and makes it stand out from the crowd. Long may it continue to thrive.

Lucy Elliott from The Kensington Magazine is an absolute delight to work with and her enthusiasm is very infectious indeed. This is immediately obvious upon meeting with her. Educated Tutors is a high-end Tutor Agency whose clients’ children attend the most prestigious independent schools. Thus, the Kensington Magazine is the best suited local medium on a par with our clientele. A testimony to that is that the very first enquiry that we received via The Kensington Magazine allowed us to place one of our high-profile maths & science Tutor in Kensington.

For the past four years we have advertised in The Kensington Magazine to promote our annual Community Carol Service at St Mary Abbots. We find the magazine a useful promotional vehicle for the local community and editor Lucy Elliott’s contacts have enabled us to identify new sponsors for the event, too.
- Felicity Swan, Head of Corporate Affairs
… just to say that the Kensington Magazine has been extremely effective for our company whereby it has raised awareness of local professional businesses offering their services to the local community. The feedback we receive from our customers is that your magazine is very well received with particular attention to the local news feature you have, we just love it!

Holland Park Computers have been advertising in the classified section of The Kensington Magazine for a few years now and we have been very happy with the response. For a very reasonable quarterly outlay we have had enquiries from the word go and continue to do so. Clients almost always mention, without being asked, where they saw the ad and that they see it as a trusted source.

Why do I enjoy the Kensington Magazine and highly recommend it? It is packed with very useful contacts and its handy A5 size means that it is very accessible to store for future reference and easily pops into my handbag. The articles are full of interesting histories and anecdotes. The magazine also updates me on new books, recommended restaurants and hidden gems, which are well researched and brought to light for me to think about and try. The Editor has laid out the magazine in a way that pleases the eye and notably she is also an excellent photographer as well. The final perk is that it’s Free! What more can you ask?!

Lucy Elliott’s The Kensington Magazine is unique – focused on content that people will read rather than lots of advertising – she is highly professional and totally passionate about what she is doing. I have used the magazine for advertising and Lucy’s advice is excellent in terms of design and content.

We have been working with Lucy and The Kensington Magazine for a number of years now and it is somewhere we always look to include in our plans for local awareness for Babylon Restaurant. We have had some great success with initiatives with The Kensington Magazine, including our 'Meet Your Neighbours' event and getting our promotions and activities out in the local media. Lucy is always helpful, great to work with and looks at new ways in which to support us.
