Close by your holiday home are both Kensington high street with gorgeous shops, bars, pubs and restaurants as well as South Kensington, London’s museum quarter. You’ll find a rich world of cultural heritage here with the capitals best cluster of free museums alongside iconic buildings like Kensington Palace Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall.

The world famous Natural History Museum is a short 15 minute walk or 8 minute bus ride from the Mews House. The museum is one of London’s real gems, a world renowned centre for research into the natural world as well as being a fantastic day out. You can come face-to-face with a T-Rex skeleton or take a journey through the Earth sculpture as you explore the Red Zone. In the summer months the grounds play host to the ‘Sensational Butterflies’ experience. Here you can get close up with giant butterflies and moths as they fly around and land on you. In winter the museum also hosts a ice rink.

Across the street is another icon museum, the Science Museum. The Science Museum caters to people of all ages and can keep both young and old enthralled. There are interactive displays, galleries and attractions as well as the 3D Imax cinema showing fantastic science related documentaries and films.

Finally we come to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, it is one of many monuments in the area to the Royal couple. Explore exhibitions of art, jewellery, design and clothing from the past 3000 years. Highlights include furniture, sculptures, fine ceramics and textiles.

Kensington high street seamlessly blends Victorian and modern architecture to create an area which emotes real elegance. You’ll get a feel of polished refinement and perfect finishing. Don’t worry, behind this Kensington has a genuinely inviting nature. High street highlights include Urban Outfitters and Whole Foods Market. Stop by the large organic food store and market set in a former department store. Find a delicious, healthy and reasonably priced lunch or dinner to eat in store or on the go.

Above the busy Kensington High Street you can find the hidden oasis of Kensington Roof Gardens. Sitting atop fabulous old buildings, the area is home to the award winning restaurant, Babylon. There are also beautiful gardens, four resident flamingos and fantastic bars to boot.

Kensington is home to some of London’s largest and most beautiful green spaces. At one end of Kensington High Street you’ll find Kensington Palace, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in their London residence before exploring the palace museum.

Explore the beautifully kept Kensington gardens which lead into another Royal Park and one of London’s most instantly recognisable landmarks, Hyde Park. The two parks cover a vast swath of West London and are home to numerous cafe’s as well as the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine and Long Water lakes. Enjoy them on a sunny day by hiring a pedal boat or by taking a relaxing and cooling dip in the water. Or just relax and enjoy the beautiful green oasis.

    Just beautiful!

    Stayed in this gorgeous apartment for 5 days and couldn’t have been more thrilled, beautifully appointed with everything you need and to be able to be on Kensington high street is just awesome and no noise issues what so ever! Can’t wait to return!

    Cute Apartment in Perfect Location!

    This apartment on Kensington High Street was perfectly located – and amazingly quiet (because of great windows) considering that it’s on a very busy street. The building is lovely and the apartment itself is very nicely designed. There are so many wonderful local restaurants and shops – not to mention the Tube – just steps away. (Check out Carluccio’s just a block away!) The rental company staff were super nice and responsive when we had some challenges with the internet (just because the apartment is so new!). I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who loves being in the center of London as much as we do!

    Great Location, Apartment and Hosts

    The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable and clean. It is in a great location (2 blocks to Tube and Whole Foods and 1 block to Boots, central to all parts of London). There is a good Italian chain restaurant up the block, Carluccio’s, that is reasonably priced if you don’t want to think too hard about where to eat and the Whole Foods has a really good food court too, in addition to loads of other places right outside the door. The hosts were very responsive to our needs. It fits a family of four comfortably, but the kids should sleep on the sofa bed. All the appliances were new, top of the line, and worked beautifully – we used them all! Plenty of dishes, pots etc for four. Would not suggest this for two couples. You will love staying here!

    Very comfortable and convenient in the heart of London

    My wife, son and I really enjoyed a 2 week vacation in London. The flat is incredibly well located and very comfortable. All the key tourist spots are a short ride or walking distance
