Things to do

-Self-guided history tour: Embark on a self-guided history tour of Kensington by simply walking out the front door of your Kensington holiday apartment and strolling about town. As you do, pay special attention to buildings with a blue plaque. That plaque indicates that someone of note lived there. As you enjoy viewing the lovely homes and quaint shops, you will also see other interesting sites such as the Albert Memorial and the Peter Pan Statue.

-Shopping: If you enjoy antique shopping then you will be thrilled with the many small shops that dot the streets in Kensington. 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.

-Dining: When you holiday to an area as affluent as Kensington, you can expect to find some fabulous restaurants nearby. You won’t be disappointed. 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.

A lovely flat in a prime location with a helpful host.

4 of 5
The apartment had two large settees as well as three double rooms and eight of us stayed comfortably. TVs in every bedroom and the living room. Just remember to take dishwasher tablets if you want to use the dishwasher. The owner was helpful and made a special visit to provide us with missing tea towels. The apartment is a stone's throw away from Kensington Park and our children enjoyed the Princess Diana playground and memorial fountain, as well as the museums. All these were walkable. You can also hire bikes from outside the apartment for £2 for 24 hours. These can be docked at any bike stand and were great for traveling through the park.
