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.

During the winter, the average highs are 8° to 11° C.

Spacious, well-appointed, centrally-located accommodations in Central London

5 of 5
Our Prestige apartment had everything our out-of-town guests needed for a two-week stay in London. The living room was spacious. The kitchen was well-equipped. The unit had three toilets and two bathroom -- all very welcome when one has multiple guests. Chiara and team were very professional and provided clear instructions for check-in and checkout. We would not hesitate to recommend Prestige Apartment for your next stay in London.

Excellent Location, Flat and Service

5 of 5
Location: The flat is located in the center of South Kensington near restaurants, shops and museums. The tube station is a short walk from the flat. Great location as a home base for touring London. Flat: The flat was perfect for our family of five. It was clean and spacious. The bedrooms are good sizes, the two and a half bathrooms were perfect for our family and the beds and pull-out sofa were all very comfortable. The flat is two levels and there are some stairs but that was not an issue for us at all. The washer/dryer is a little tricky to figure out but once we did it worked well. The surrounding neighborhood is lively but the flat is located on a very quiet street. Service: The flat is managed by City Relay. Upon check-in, we were greeted at the flat and everything was explained to us. We did have a few questions and minor issues during our stay but the City Relay team (Justin and Daniela) was available and responsive to our needs. They helped resolve the issues and provided excellent service. Overall: We had a great experience and vacation. I would highly recommend the flat and City Relay.
