Good tube and bus connections and some lovely quiet areas to explore. Some good coffee shops including a nice Cafe Nero. Stunning architectural features and some really high class shops.

Love Kensington High Street, varied authentic and all you could want in just 1/2 mile. Not too hectic compared to a Oxford Street near Christmas and actually nicer.

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.

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
