It’s a couple of minutes’ walk to the Underground station (in central Zone 1), served by the Circle and District tube lines that loop around the entire West End (14 mins) and City (24 mins), as well as giving access to Heathrow Airport (40 mins). The lines also lead directly to major railway interchanges at Victoria, Blackfriars and Liverpool Street for national rail services, and King’s Cross for international connections. Buses are also a favourite local option, getting you to Piccadilly Circus in just 31 minutes. By road, Kensington has major east-west links to both central London and Heathrow Airport. Affluent yet approachable, exclusive but vibrant, leafy Kensington may be a lively shopping hub but it also has some of the capital’s most tranquil parkland. It’s where refined gourmet restaurants rub shoulders with hip bars, where you’re steps from the world’s finest museums as well as the retail mecca of Harrods. A few kilometres from Piccadilly Circus, but a world apart. Kensington is a hive of fashion and antiques shops, while the surrounding areas give even more variety. Sloane Street rivals Bond Street for fashion, while nearby Harrods pushes luxury to a different level. There’s King’s Road Chelsea for antiques – or just meeting friends for coffee and cake – while Notting Hill has quirkier niche boutiques. And the pinnacle of shopping, with its flagship couturiers, art galleries and jewellers, marvellous Mayfair is just a ten-minute drive away. Dozens of London’s Michelin-starred establishments lie within a couple of kilometres of Kensington High Street. Kensington is on the doorstep of London’s most expansive green spaces. Hyde Park, Henry VIII’s former hunting ground, and Kensington Gardens, once the private gardens of the palace, combine to make almost 200 hectares of open space – larger than the Principality of Monaco.
