Kensington is the chicest and most elegant neighborhood in London. Affluent and rich in culture and class, it is home to cobbled mews, pretty houses, gardens, parks and more.
Kensington has some of the most beautiful mews in London (Kynance Mews is a favorite) that are beautiful all year round and whatever the season. Kensington is home to secret streets and the best museums in London (some say even the world). It’s home to the Royal Albert Hall too! Related: A Neighborhood Guide to London’s Marylebone
Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are both located in this beautiful royal borough. But that isn’t all, it has some of the top restaurants and bars, making it a real hot spot.
Kensington has plenty of options for things to do: Explore a museum, relax in a park, enjoy a cuppa, do a bit of shopping at its chic designer boutiques.
High Street Kensington is often buzzing with shoppers. If you feel like taking your adventures further you can take Kensington Church street to Notting Hill and head to Knightsbridge as well, then Fulham high road to neighboring Chelsea. Related: Afternoon Tea at Candella, Kensington
