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.

                                                              We stayed in this beautiful maisonette apartment for my mums birthday and I have to say it was out of this world. 2 huge double ensuite bedrooms, immaculate kitchen and living room and a stunning roof terrace. the location was perfect with cafe's, bars and a tesco express almost on the doorstep! just a few minutes walk to the tube too. The owner Genie was fantastic! she met us on arrival in the morning at let us leave our luggage until the apartment was ready so save us paying at Euston to store them. She is a lovely lady and cannot do enough for you, we even had tea, coffee, milk, sweets, mini cereals and fresh fruit for our arrival. I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment and we will certainly be back. there's no where else in London that compares to this amazing apartment! thankyou Genie and see you soon xxx

                                                              The listing description was accurated regarding the location, layout and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner provided good customer service. I will recommend this property to my friends, my relatives and other my known. I liked all nearby activities and attractions.The restaurants were very good.

                                                              Genie's flat is so well looked after, with new and modern bathrooms and kitchenette, a light and airy sitting room and bright lighting throughout. It is very clean and the linen was lovely and fresh, my night's sleep was very comfortable. With two bathrooms, two bedrooms and pullout sofa 5 of us slept in their comfortably and I'm sure you could sleep 7 at a squeeze. The flat is a 2min walk from Holland Park tube, a tesco's express and lots of other cafe's and shops so really convenient. Upon arriving at the flat Genie, welcomed us so warmly! She's very down to earth and kind, and was very generous and flexible with her arrangements - she allowed my friends and I a later check out as she knew as teens we'd be back late and want to sleep in early :) thank you Genie for such a lovely stay! Hope to see you again soon X
