Kensington is one of Londons most desirable areas with its mix of grandeur and charm. Its grandeur comes from Kensington Palace, home to several members of the Royal Family, and the enclaves of splendid mansions along Kensington Palace Gardens and Holland Park. Its charm comes from its shopping parades and its green spaces: Holland Park, Kensington Gardens merging with Hyde Park, and numerous garden squares in between.
The Royal Borough (given Royal status in 1901) has been home to the monarchy since 1689. The well- tended gardens at Kensington Palace are open to the public, as are those of Holland Park.
When it comes to shopping, Kensington High Street has every high street brand you can think of with the landmark Barkers building, now Whole Foods, reminding us of the streets history in retail supremacy. With popular parks, museums and shops in easy reach and a crowd of competing hotels nearby, Kensington is brilliant for tourists wanting to be that little way out of the centre.

Overground-The nearest Overground station is Kensington Olympia Station (Zone 2) which is a combined rail and tube station, and is served by the London Overground line which travels as far as Zone 9, with the District line also available via this station.

Bus routes-Numerous buses from Kensington High Street serve central London including the 10,27,9, and 70.
