South Kensington is home to the Victoria and Albert museum, science museum and Natural history museum. It's a striking area packed with large mansions and I think the French embassy, judging by the house with a huge French and EU flag and 2 armed soldiers....More

A great place to visit. Nice museums and fantastic area to walk around in. Lovely houses and great transport links. Pop in and see the Science museum when you are here.

South Ken is a lovely area to wander around even if you take the great attractions out of it. Just a stone's throw from places like the Natural History Museum are quiet, leafy streets with lovely architecture. It is well connected by bus and train.

A very fashionable and posh area of London. Be prepared to bring a few quid with you, as you'll certainly need it!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
