Kensington is a particularly affluent part of London, offering high class shopping and accommodation with plenty of sights to see. It was handed the status of “Royal Borough” in 1901 and since 1689, has been home to royalty. For all of these reasons Kensington is part of the capital which is extremely popular with tourists as well as residents.
If you’ve come to the capital for a spot of retail therapy, Kensington offers a wonderful mix of high street names and little boutiques. Whether it’s high fashion, homewares or delicious food that you’re looking for, you’ll find everything in Kensington.
Despite the marvellous shopping opportunities, Kensington offers far more than the chance to splash the cash. Despite being in the heart of west London, Kensington has a rich abundance of green areas and parks. One of the jewels in the crown, quite literally is Kensington Park, home to Kensington Palace plus many other attractions too. It’s here that you’ll find the popular memorial playground for Diana, Princess of Wales.
There are lots of other green parks within Kensington too, such as Holland Park. At 22.5 hectares, there’s the opportunity to play sports, walk through woodland or admire the stunning Japanese themed Kyoto Garden.
Even without visiting one of the formal tourist hotspots, you’ll find the borough provides plenty of interesting sights. Vibrant and diverse, you can admire the sprawling mansions found in Holland Park and beautiful Edwardian architecture. While you’re in the area, you might want to find time to see St Mary Abbots, the tallest church spire in the capital, or the Albert Memorial, a landmark used by World War I German fighter pilots.
