          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
