A very fashionable and posh area of London. Be prepared to bring a few quid with you, as you'll certainly need it!

With so many museums all on Exhibition Road and access to so many restaurants , Cafes, and pubs, you will not be disappointed. If the weather is nice, you are just a few short blocks to Hyde Park and Albert Hall.

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
