History and Information: Situated between Kensington and Fulham, Earls Court is an area of constant change and growth. After World War 2, many people from Europe migrated and set up home in the nestled NESW London district. In scores came the Polish, leading to Earl’s Court being dubbed the ‘Danzig Corridor’. Then later on, the Australians came and the Danzig Corridor became ‘Kangaroo Court’. Fast forward to the 21st century and the average Earls Court local can be from any corner of the globe, but also from all walks of life.

With new homes being built on demolished land in Earls Court and more in planning, the area is only going forward.
