Kensington Guide

Your All In London guide to Kensington


Situated within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Kensington is a western region of London that is less than three miles away from the centre of the city.

Industrial Revolution, the 80s economic boom and the recent gentrification that seems to be homogenising so many of Londonís neighbourhoods. It is and always has been a wealthy area, no doubt to the delights of its inhabitants. Kensington Church Street is filled with quaint antique shops, book shops and cafes, while Kensington High Street is rather more mainstream with high street clothing retailers and a giant version of uber-organic purveyors Whole Foods; perhaps that goes some way towards explaining why the residents of Kensington have the UKís highest life expectancy.

As well as being an attractive location to visit in its own right, Kensington is also a neighbour of other popular areas such as Earls Court, Shepherdís Bush and Hammersmith. South Kensington is also well known for its many museums which attract a high volume of tourists, every year.
