Kensington is the archetypal London village. A place of rich culture, parks, shopping and award-winning restaurants.
Turn right for the hustle of the high street. Go left, and the tranquillity of old Kensington that everyone knows and loves comes alive.
Kensington has been shaping our experience of the high street for well over a century. A place that offers high street luxury brands yet is so close to Notting Hill boutiques and Knightsbridge shopping and it’s still only minutes from Mayfair, Bond Street and St James’.
For culture, the V&A, Design Museum, Science and Natural History museums nestle between Royal Parks and palaces. Yet, step back just one street and Kensington changes again.
Wander little Holland Street and Thackeray Street to see galleries and independent shops, find buzzing neighbourhood tables at Clarke’s and Launceston Place and then head back to the lure of Kensington High Street and The Ivy Kensington Brasserie.
