Area Feature

London, as a whole, is generally seen as a desirable place to live or visit, but certain areas have an almost cult appeal. Kensington is definitely one of those places, providing a variety of things to do outside of the city centre.

With a whole array of famous and successful occupants - including a royal abode - Kensington has got the 'it-crowd' covered. Throw in a fantastic shopping experience, a bit of nature and some rich history and Kensington makes for a fantastic area to visit or live.


The area of Kensington has a rich and varied history. The area is found in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and has played host to the monarchy since 1689 when William III began his residence in Kensington Palace. It was Queen Victoria who wished Kensington to be given the title of 'Royal Borough' and it was done following her death in 1901. Queen Victoria was born in Kensington Palace in 1819 and lived there until 1837, when she became Queen.

Way before the monarchy moved into the area, Kensington was actually a Saxon settlement. Both Kensington and Chelsea were mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086.

The shopping experience

Kensington High Street is fantastic for those who enjoy shopping till they drop. It is conveniently located in close proximity to the Underground station, which provides regular transport to other areas of London and train stations. The high street has a large variety of fashion shops, ranging from the usual high street brands to a few more upmarket names.

The high street also has a good selection of outdoor shops, providing equipment for camping and skiing. All of these shops are in one area, making the high street the perfect place to go for those embarking on an adventure holiday.

Kensington Church Street is the place to go for boutiques, antiques shops and specialist stores.

Things to do

As the area has such a rich history there are many places to visit in Kensington, whether as a visitor or a resident.

Kensington Palace is definitely worth a visit, even if history isn't a passion. The palace itself is incredibly beautiful and the State apartments are open to the public. There are often exhibits to visit at the palace, which reveal a bit more about its royal inhabitants.

If visiting Kensington Palace, it only makes sense to visit Kensington Gardens. The gardens are one of London's eight Royal Parks and boast beautiful displays as well as several memorials and interesting art pieces.

The gardens are free to enter and provide a green break from city life. People are encouraged to visit, ride bikes, picnic and walk their dogs - although some areas are restricted and others require dogs to be on leads - in the gardens.

The gardens are a fantastic place to take children as the Diana Memorial Playground is located within their 275 acres. The playground is close to the Palace - where Diana Princess of Wales once lived - and boasts a fantastic wooden pirate ship as its centrepiece. The playground also has areas where less able and able-bodied children can play together, as well as providing an educational experience for all children.

Other places to visit in the gardens include the Albert Memorial, Italian gardens, Serpentine Gallery and the Peter Pan statue.


Kensington has both Underground services and regular bus routes, making it easy for people to travel within the area and to Greater London.
