The Wider Image: Split Britain? A tale of two Kensingtons
Just 48 hours ahead of a national election, two districts of the same name illustrate the yawning political and economic divisions between different parts of Britain. In the Kensington area of the northern city of Liverpool, a two-bedroom terraced house costs around 50,000 pounds ($64,600). In glitzy Kensington, London, a similar property could cost 100 times more. The British capital's Kensington is famous for its parks, upmarket shops, and museums that attract millions of tourists each year. Its multi-million-pound mansions house a cosmopolitan population, while royalty lives behind the gilded gates of Kensington Palace. The district in Liverpool receives few international visitors, although cheap housing has made it a popular area with students. Ahead of Thursday's election, locals there expressed worries over the economy and immigration. REUTERS/Hannah McKay SEARCH "MCKAY KENSINGTON" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
