Make a holiday apartment in Kensington your home away from home

Kensington is a lovely choice for a holiday. You’ll have easy access to all of the best that London has to offer.

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.

Weather in Kensington

Anytime you holiday to London you know that you’ll have to be prepared for unexpected weather changes. When you choose a holiday rental in Holland Park, it is always a good idea to bring an umbrella no matter the time of year. During the summer, the average highs are between 20° and 23° C. During the winter, the average highs are 8° to 11° C.

Travel to Kensington

Both Central London Airport (LCY) and Heathrow International Airport (LHR) will provide easy access to your holiday home in Kensington. From either airport, you can travel the short distance to Kensington via car or choose to use public transport. There are three underground stations in Kensington including High Street Kensington, Gloucester Road and South Kensington.

The location could not have been better for us; also near our son, his wife and our grandson's home.

5 of 5
This was the London second home of our Venetian hosts who also had family in London. Thus, it was very comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. Our hosts were very kind and helpful. When visiting our relatives in London in future we would not wish to stay anywhere else. Tony & Christel Horan, Dublin

an excellent appointed appartment

5 of 5
The appartment is in a great position in a very nice street and only a 10 min walk to the centre of Kensington for a great choice of a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. It has a modern kitchen and a big flat screen tv,clean and tidy with crisp white cotton bedding. We would have no hesitation in using the appartment again, a great stay
