More about Kensington, London

Kensington is a popular district in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Kensington occupies the area below Hyde Park, whilst being enclosed by other popular districts like Chelsea and Knightsbridge

It appeals to travellers due to its upscale and high-end feel, which isn’t surprising given that it is in one of the wealthiest areas in the whole of London. The swish SW7 postcode is a staple that the residents take to heart and can often be a sign of envy from all those that want to lead the London high life available in the streets.

One other key factor to the area’s popularity is the array of attractions within its boundaries, including Kensington High Street, Harrods, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum, and the Natural History Museum. Giving its residents and guests ample access to high-sale commerce, history, and scientific institutions, they can feel like they’re in the perfect spot for the ultimate London experience.

Lastly, there are the fine dining and luxurious restaurants that fill up the shopping streets, each one serving a diversity of global cuisines. The foods here are cooked to the highest quality, so all guests can indulge in delight as the rest of the city moves around outside. From the best of British to French finesse and other remarkable and popular dishes, any guest of ours will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the opulent cooking standards of Kensington.

Where to Stay in Kensington

Kensington is located in the West End of Central London, north of Fulham, east of Hammersmith, and on the southwest corner of Hyde Park.

It is an ideal spot to stay in London, whatever the reason for the visit. It is ideally located for travel into Central London and, because of the transport links, it is even easy to get into East London and the corporate area around Canary Wharf.

For anyone wanting to stay put in Kensington itself, there is a huge number of attractions within walking distance.

Kensington High Street is a great place to stay for anyone who has even just a passing interest in shopping. It was the home of major department stores for many years and now has been redesigned as a traditional British High Street. This is in contrast to Westfield Shopping, a mall-type shopping centre which has opened in nearby Shepherds Bush.

South Kensington is the more cultured side of the area and a favourite of tourists who are visiting London. It has a high concentration of historic landmarks as well as being home to some of the most well-known museums in the capital. It is also in close proximity to other popular London areas like Chelsea, Earls Court, and Knightsbridge.

Facts about Kensington

Kensington’s history stretches back to the time of William the Conqueror when it was part of the historic county of Middlesex. 

Today it is an area that has grown from the High Street, with pretty vague geographical boundaries. A particularly old and apparently unsolvable local argument is where Kensington ends and Chelsea begins.

The west of Kensington is more clearly defined by a railway line running across it.

Kensington is part of one of the most populated areas in the UK but it also boasts two famous London green areas, Kensington Gardens, and Hyde Park. Though the latter only borders Kensington itself.

Weather in Kensington

The UK is not a big country and therefore has limited weather zones. The southeast of England has similar weather throughout. London is in the southeast and therefore Kensington follows suit.

The weather, as a rule, has no rules and is quite difficult to forecast, what with Britain being an island. However, Kensington is guaranteed to be cold in winter and warm in summer. But remember, summer can jump between pouring rain and blistering temperatures at a moment’s notice, so layers are recommended.

As well as summer, spring and autumn are recommended times to visit Kensington. All will bring reasonable temperatures, at times, and will avoid the cold of winter.
