It was a good place for window shopping. So we thought. But there were two chaps (security guards?) who patronised us in intimidating fashion.

Walked the length of Kensington High Street today and whilst not too busy it was largely the usual shop chains apart from a couple of food markets and some local coffee & cake places. Probably provides a good variety if you live in the area but nothing special.

This is just an ordinary shopping street (and not a good one, too), located in Kensington. While there're a lot of shops to choose from, the street itself is anything but impressive, even when the Christmas decorations are on.

We had spent much of a Sunday in central London. By mid-afternoon, we had caught the tube to Kensington High Street underground station while on our way to visit Kensington Palace. As we had visited this high street several times before during previous stays in London, we did not feel the need to dwell there for too long. However, as we made our way along the high street from the tube station in the direction of Kensington Palace, we were amazed by how busy the footpaths and a number of the shops along the street were. Fairly obviously, many of the locals choose to do their shopping on a Sunday afternoon. Kensington High Street provides plenty of shopping opportunities being home to a large number of specialty shops. If you are visiting the street as a tourist, it provides plenty of ambience, atmosphere and local colour!

Was staying nearby next to the embassies and loved the short walk each morning to the tube station where at any moment of the day, I could pop in to M&S or Whole Foods for a satisfying bite. There is no other high street in London I’d rather be in. Safe, convenient and atmospheric. Thank you, Londoners for making Kensington so easy to love.
