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.

                                    Our stay in London was perfect. Located in West Kensington, this flat couldn’t have been more ideal for our little vacation. For visiting the city, the tube is less then 5 min away (two stations: West Kensington and Barons Court). The apartment was really comfortable, clean and well-maintained. Although we were only three adults staying in the apartment, the place is large enough to host four people and/or children. Nice and cozy living room, well equipped kitchen, clean bathroom. Just great! Supermarkets are around the corner, also nice pubs and restaurants in the area. All in all a very good apartment rental for a London vacation.

                                    We stayed here in October 2009 for a week - everything about this apartment, our stay and booking was perfect. Genuinely, there was nothing we could fault that we would book again without any hesitation. The owner was a delight to deal with when we booked the apartment - very accommodating and helpful. When we arrived at the apartment, arrangments were made for keys to be given to us by the local property manager and the apartment was immaculately clean. There were clear instructions in the apartment but nothing too formal or prescriptive that you did not automatically feel at home. The apartment is very well furnished to an excellent standard - the layout & size of the apartment is particularly good for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (not to be taken for granted in London esp in new developments) and the availability of WIFI broadband access is excellent. As for location, this was perfect for us and our young son - so close to High St Ken yet so private overlooking a beautiful and quiet Victorian square and church - all shops are within a few minutes walk - Boots, M&S, Tesco Metro, Wholefoods, Waitrose.and minutes from Kensington Gardens, Princess Diana Memorial Playground & museums so our son had plenty of space to run around! We brought our nanny to London with us and she had never been to London before so the location, local sights and convenience of local amenities was perfect for her! She loved it too. Thank you for making our stay in London so pleasant and welcoming! Cannot recommend this property more highly!
