Kensington High Street is the one of the most important shopping streets in Kensington. A part of affluent London. Busy street with expensive shops and restaurants but you will also find here Mac Donald and cheaper places.

very busy street with a variety of shop, banks etc. Good for high end shopping and also well known chain stores such as Marks & Spencer. Very, very busy on the pavements as well as the road.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
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
