I’ll be travelling to London later this year on a work assignment and I thinking of staying in either of these locations: Belgravia, Kensington or Chelsea. Can anyone suggest any popular attractions near Belgravia, Kensington and Chelsea?
0 Hi. There are plenty of popular sites in Belgravia. Buckingham Palace is on the top of the list. Hyde Park comes next. One of the 8 Royal Parks of London, it is a luscious green beauty. You can enjoy the Royal art collection at the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace. Belgravia Gallery is an art lover’s delight. It houses the one of the greatest of collections from great artists like Picasso, Monet and Rembrandt. There are many worthy attractions in Kensington as well.
