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.

From the time of our booking thru our departure Peter provided outstanding customer service. He promptly responded to all email inquiries and during our stay he was attentive and extremely helpful regarding directions and suggestions. The best thing about this apartment is its location. It is very convenient to the Earls Court tube station and to a variety of good restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, etc. (all within a 5 minute walk). Also, the apartment is spacious and was perfect for the three of us. I would highly recommend staying at this Earls Court apartment if you are visiting London!

We four arrived with a very sick husband and Eve was kind enough to drive us to a pharmacist and then to two hospitals. She was accommodating, always answered our questions, and went overboard to basically welcome unknown strangers who renting her flat. Now, to get to the flat. We had a wonderful stay and the flat was up to our expectations. The outdoor patio was especially nice as we had fabulous weather in London and spent many hours researching what we were going to do the for the day. The location was excellent and was near a neighborhood grocery store, dry cleaner, hair salon, and a great pub/hotel. This is not a negative and was disclosed in the flat information that there are two flights of steep stairs, one to the main living area and one to the bedroom and bathroom areas. If you are disabled in any way this might be difficult to navigate. All in all, we had a wonderful trip notwithstanding one of our travelers being in the hospital. We highly recommend this flat and our gracious landlady!
