Defined by its towering Victorian and Georgian properties and leafy squares, Kensington is the epitome of luxury London living. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea contains some of the most peaceful leafy squares to retreat to in London, providing the area with a sense of serenity. However, Kensington and the nearby Knightsbridge are famed for the retail opportunities they offer. Brompton Road is lined with venerated designer stores, including Prada, Gucci and Harvey Nichols. Harrods, the most famous emporium in the world, is also situated on Brompton Road. King’s Road is lined with a diverse range of chic cafes, exquisite restaurants and trendy bars. Several tube stations surround the area, making travelling around the city for leisure or pleasure a stress-free experience.
