Your Kensington holiday apartment is also located very near Harrods, a much loved, high-end department store. Even if you don’t want to shop in Harrods, this store is still worth a visit. It is beautiful both inside and out, and it features a number of halls that were designed with browsers in mind. The Egyptian Hall is a favourite with visitors. Be sure to also make a stop to the Food Hall where you’ll have your choice of a large variety of delicious offerings.

Whether you want some typical London fare, such as fish and chips, or any number of choices such as Thai, Italian or German, you will find it all near your Kensington holiday apartment.

-Museums: As mentioned above, the Museum District is located within Kensington. You’ll be within walking distance of London’s best museums. Visit the Leighton House Museum, a 19th century home filled with period furniture and artwork. Spend an afternoon at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which is considered by many to be one of the finest art museums in the world. History buffs will love the National Army Museum whilst the Natural History and Science Museums are always popular with families.

-Visit the Palace: Your Kensington holiday apartment will put you just a ten minute walk from Kensington Palace. Some parts of the palace are open to the public, so get a glimpse of the royal lifestyle whilst you’re on holiday.

In fact the flat does not appear at all in the picture , not even the front door! However we were not too disappointed with that. The flat is a 2 room (1 up 1 down) . Plainly decorated. A few negatives; the loo had evidence of old poo. The kitchen sink was not clean. The design of the sink area made it difficult to use as the sink was set back in the corner under the top units. The shower was difficult; firstly the tap was very stiff; it took some time to figure this as we were afraid we might damage it. Secondly the water tap and the temperature tap were so close they hit each other. Thirdly I could not lower the temperature even with the tap turned fully anti-clockwise The flat was light and airy. The bed was very comfortable. All the basics for self catering were there. The owner was very pleasant and made us feel very welcome.
