Earls Court

Earls Court's convention center is responsible for most of this neighborhood's foot traffic, but don't forget to look for its hidden establishments and high-class homes.

Earls Court is two-faced—while East Earls Court is characterized by multi-million dollar Georgian homes, the neighborhood’s west side is comprised of scrappier restaurants and performance spaces. Although well-manicured garden squares and gay and student-friendly pubs contribute to Earls Court’s appeal, its Art Deco exhibition center’s massive trade shows, national fairs, and performances serve as the neighborhood’s main attraction. See the center soon—it’s slated to be repurposed by 2020.
