Well, social class is about more than income. If you mean middle income then say "middle income".

Anyway, I'm well aware of average rental prices in the area. There are still lots of young people. The average flat is £535/week but there are plenty of studio/1BR places for £400 or less, and of course if you share a 2-bedroom that costs £600-650 with a flatmate that's less. It's not cheap, but there are plenty of Londoners in their 20s who can afford these prices.

And Notting Hill is still less uniformly affluent than some other parts of London. For starters, there's a lot more council housing once you get up to Talbot Road / Blenheim Crescent. The part on the hill itself (with the big garden squares) and around Westbourne Grove is very nice, but it's not as nice when you get up toward Ladbroke Grove tube.
