The flat is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, which is one of the only 3 royal boroughs in the UK, and one of the best, most up-scale boroughs to live in London.


Holland Park is less than a 10-minute walk away and has a Japanese garden, a nice French restaurant (The Belvedere), an outdoor cafeteria, tennis courts, a summer open-air opera theatre, and a lovely tree-lined avenue.

If you walk towards Holland Park tube station, there are nice places for breakfast, brunch or lunch (Paul's, Manon Blanc, Giraffe, Starbucks etc.)

Westfield Shopping Mall - Westfield Shopping Centre is only 5 minutes walk away and has everyday shopping, luxury stores, and plenty of local dining options. Waitrose supermarket is located at the entrance.


Kensington High Street and Hyde Park are about 15-20 minute walk, where you can find Kensington Palace and Gardens, the new home for Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte.

The Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum are just a few stops away by bus (no 9, 10, C1).


There is a corner convenience shop (open 7 days a week), a laundry/dry cleaning (open on Sundays and will home deliver), dental clinic, celebrity hairdresser and an Italian (Cibo) and Persian restaurant (Alounak) all about 3 minute walk away when you turn right on exiting the flat. There is also a small fitness and therapy studio if a massage or more intense workout is required.


The flat is conveniently located close to many public transport options.

•Shepherds Bush station (Central Line, Overground): 6 minute walk

•Kensington Olympia station (District Line, Overground): 8 minute walk south

•Holland Park station (Central Line): 10 minute walk east from the roundabout

•Many buses to central London ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to name a few)

•There's also coach stop for Oxford and Bicester Village nearby: 5-7 minute walk

• Bus no. C1 and 148 go directly to Victoria

• Bus no. 10 goes directly to King's Cross

• Many direct buses for Knightsbridge (Harrods), Oxford Street/Bond Street, Piccadilly Circus


We personally use the Citymapper app to plan public transportation, and would definitely recommend it!


For taxi services, there are 3 options:

Uber: Convenient, fast, and significantly cheaper than a Black Cab. Uber is a great alternative to taxies in London (we use it a lot). You will need to download the app and sign up with your credit card.

Black Cab: Classic London black cabs are easy to spot and seat 5 people. They are easy to catch from Holland Park Avenue and High Street Kensington, but tend to be rare on Holland Road.

Minicabs: Minicabs need to be booked online or over the phone. They can be booked for immediate pick-up or in advance. Addison Lee is the largest minicab company.


If you need to contact emergency services in the UK, dial 999 or 112
