High Street Kensington is not Oxford Street but it is close enough by bus, or walk to Westfield White City, or bus it to Portobello Road. The shops on the High Street includes Marks and Spencer, TK Maxx, Wholefoods, Argos, Boots, Urban Outfitters, H&M, Gap,...More

This street is somewhat of a "has been", as nowadays it's past its glory days. There are numerous shops and restaurants along the street, but definitely no "WOW" effect.

Once one of the most fashionable of shopping streets has lost out to the great maw of Westfield...Other than M&S no serious department store but lots of smaller, and somewhat inferior shops. Travel agent heaven plus a good Uniqlo, Wilko and TKMaxx

One of the biggest and busiest shopping streets in West London, interesting to wander along and see the upmarket shops. Quite varied architecture, and well served by public transport.

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
