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!

The food is very good and so is the service. But this is highly over-priced. For 40 pounds I had soup and sea food lettuce wraps. The sea food was very sparsely but very finely chopped up and when I asked for an extra piece...More

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
