Kensington is the ideal central London location with lots to explore, see and do: Royal Palaces, three world famous museums, green open spaces and parks, a famous concert hall, Imperial College, plenty of shopping opportunities, restaurants and cafes, and excellent transport links to theatre land in the West End and the city’s business districts.
Located west of Hyde Park and bordered by Notting Hill and Knightsbridge, Kensington High Street is the commercial heart, and South Kensington, often described as ‘London’s cultural heartland’, is one of the most affluent areas in London. There are also lots of interesting architecture and hidden pockets of interest in the area, so it’s well worth strolling through the streets that run off the main roads.
