South Kensington is home to a cluster of free museums, making it the perfect destination for families and adults alike.

In winter, the Natural History Museum also hosts an ice-rink.

At the Victoria and Albert Museum, you can see art and design from the past 3000 years, including ceramics, furniture, fashion, jewellery, photographs, sculpture, textiles and paintings.

The family-friendly Science Museum caters for kids of all ages. The interactive Garden area is specially designed for under fives, while the hands-on Launchpad gallery is perfect for teenagers.

Just next door you’ll find London’s Natural History Museum, where you can come face-to-face with a giant T-rex, and experience an earthquake in the Power Within zone.

There’s plenty of green space in Kensington – the area’s home to two of London’s magnificent Royal Parks: Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.

When you’re in Kensington Gardens, make sure you visit Kensington Palace, the current London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It is also where both Queen Victoria and Diana, Princess of Wales lived. Explore the State Apartments, see Queen Victoria’s bedroom, look around temporary exhibitions, stroll around the landscaped gardens and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the Orangery.

Take a walk around Kensington’s Royal Parks and you’ll discover lots more attractions, including the Serpentine lake, the Albert Memorial, the Serpentine Gallery, and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.

Looking for a shopping fix? Check out High Street Kensington’s fabulous shops, from Urban Outfitters to Oliver Bonas. Don’t miss the Whole Foods Market, a huge organic food market housed in a former department store.

High above the shops of Kensington High Street is a hidden oasis, Kensington Roof Gardens. The rooftop is home to award-winning British restaurant, Babylon, as well as a private members’ club, a series of themed gardens and four resident flamingos!

If you’re a history fan, make sure you visit nearby Linley Sambourne House. Cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne and his family lived here from 1874, and the house still contains most of the original furniture and fittings.

    Great family stay apartment

    We found the apartment to be excellent and very central to supermarkets and tube station. The apartment was very well supplied with the basic supplies. Restaurants and pubs nearby were very good and reasonably priced. Thank you to Karen for all of her organising for us to be picked up and returned to Heathrow as well. Mark the taxi driver could not have been more helpful and punctual. A great holiday was had by all the family and would highly recommend the apartment

    Regards

    Great location.

    Great Kensington location. Very large apartment building with all the modern conveniences. Walking distance to restaurants, pubs and the tube. The unit has very steep stairs from the entry hall area to the common living areas; proving a bit of a challenge for some of us. There is a nice balcony off the living room where all five of us sat and enjoyed a bottle of wine. No concierge on site but property management available by phone or email. All said, this flat offers spacious and affordable accommodations for your stay in Kensington.

    Great location, responsive management company, spacious family apartment

    This apartment had many positives for our family of 5. It is a bi-level unit, so the master bedroom and bath are upstairs where you enter, and two more bedrooms, kitchen, full bath and living room and outside deck are downstairs. It’s nice to have some privacy from the children but this also means if your kids go to bed, you can’t make much noise downstairs. The apartment does not have air conditioning, which is pretty common for London. We slept with windows open, but the apartment (especially the two bedrooms downstairs) do get warm so we kept the large door to the deck open most nights.

    Internet is available in the unit, though it does not work in the upstairs master bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed with a dishwasher and a combination washer/dryer unit. There is a very convenient grocery store on the grounds of the apartment complex and a Starbucks in the grocery. The tube station is a 5 minute walk and it took about 20 minutes to get to Piccadilly Circus which is great.

    The management company was responsive to an issue we had with our washing machine and had it replaced during our stay as the machine was broken. We had to use the laundromat 5 minutes away, but the management refunded us for the money we spent doing laundry.

    Fabulous Location

    We really enjoyed our stay. The location couldn’t be any better — right around the corner from two grocery stores and a tube stop and an easy walk to Kensington Gardens. We were a family of five with kids aged 14, 11 and 6. The room set up was great. We had plenty of space.

  • Don Neuman says:

    great

    the apartment was well located for our tourist interests, modern, clean, comfortable with the plus of a balcony with a great view. Fit my family’s needs quite well (seven of us). very pleased. – don neuman

    Comfortable, centrally located Kensington apartment

    This eighth- and ninth-floor apartment, in a high-rise building, “Point West,” converted to apartments within the past twenty years, is modern and comfortable. All three bedrooms face the quiet inner courtyard and the small balcony terrace faces west. There is ample storage space for clothing and luggage, and sufficient shelf space in the two modern bathrooms, which have full tubs with showers.

    The large living/dining room is comfortable and attractive. The kitchen has all necessary equipment, and the washer-dryer works (which has not been the case with every rental we have had). The management company is responsive to any problems. The building’s 24-hour concierge staff are friendly and helpful as needed. The wifi is fast and reliable (although it does not reliably reach the upstairs bedroom).

    The building is located less than five minutes from the Gloucester Road underground station, which is served by three underground lines providing swift service to most parts of London–a great location. It’s only a few blocks further walk to the museum complex of Natural History, Science and the Victoria and Albert Museums. Kensington High Street and Kensington Gardens are a short walk north from the building. There is a large grocery store on the same property as Point West, and another adjacent to the underground station.

    The only disadvantage I can think of is that the staircase between the two levels is narrow and fairly steep, a potential problem for people with elderly knees or large pieces of luggage.

    All in all this is a fine place to stay in London and we would consider renting it again if it were available the next time we visit the city.

    Great flat, great location

    We visited London as a family, 2 parents and 2 teenage boys, to visit our oldest son that is studying abroad. This 3 bedroom flat was ideal. It’s in a wonderful location close to the Underground, restaurants, stores and the museums in South Kensington. There was also plenty of space in the flat — we even had a ‘modified Thanksgiving dinner’ there. The beds were comfortable, fully equipped kitchen (even a small combo washer/dryer), nice bathrooms and a large comfortable living area in which the family could gather to chat and unwind. The building is secure — though the hallways are a bit worn. The only thing I would change is that we were only able to obtain one key to the building/flat. With 4 – 5 of us, it would have been nice to have at least 2 sets of keys.

    London flat

    The apartment was just as described and as shown in pics. Great location and management even set up a pick up at Heathrow. Would definitely book again.

    Awesome for parents with teenagers

    Stayed with my husband and two daughters, 12 and 16, was excellent for everyone to have their own space. Master bedroom on the upper floor with a bathroom and then the two bedrooms for the girls were on the main floor with their own bathroom. Great little kitchen with all the necessary appliances. Huge living room room area with loads of space for everyone, including the balcony. We were met on arrival and shown around the apartment which was very helpful. So close to Glouchester station and grocery stores. The apartment was also lovely and warm for October, we didn’t even need to turn on the heat.

    Great Location! Apartment was large and well equipped.

    The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood with restaurants, shopping, underground stop, etc. right there. The Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington Palace, and Natural History Museum as well as Harrods are a short walk and the Gloucester stop allows access to literally everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is large, clean and well equipped and the building is well- cared for and very nice. We had a slight issue with the bedding upon arrival, but Karen responded quickly, took care of all and even sent us chocolates! As others have noted, it is a duplex and the living area is downstairs with the two smaller bedrooms so the stairs could be a challenge. I would also mention the tub/showers have high sides so might be a challenge for some also. The bedrooms could be warm at night so we definitely had to keep windows open. We would definitely stay there again.

    Modern 3 bedroom apartment with good access to transportation and food of all sorts.

    This is a very nice property with room to spread out. It was perfect for our family of 5 adults traveling together. It is modern, clean, and fully wired. It has great access to the tube, buses, 2 excellent grocery stores, west end museums, and loads of restaurants within walking distance.

    The greeter met us right on time and Karen from Heritage Rentals was very responsive with several questions we had during our visit.

    2 things to be aware of with this property- all but 1 bedroom has to be accessed via the stairs which are very steep; and there is no traditional air conditioning so if you’re there in the few warm weeks of summer, you will want to use the fans provided and leave the windows open on both sides of the apartment to create ventilation. The balcony and patio windows face west.

    We would definitely stay here again for a group our size.

    Family visit to London

    The apartment is in an excellent location,spacious, quiet with wonderful views, and made an excellent base for us to introduce our grandchildren to London.

    The only annoying issue we had was with the oven which took forever to reach the required temperature for safely cooking any food. After a day’s sightseeing it is important to have an working oven to heat a fresh chilled meal, but this oven never even approached the required temperature.

    Other minor niggles were

    1. the initial lack of adequate cutlery, which was rectified by the owner.

    2. The broken, unsafe, chair in the top bedroom.

    3. the main light that did not work in the top bedroom

    All these could so easily put right.

    Overall our visit was a great success

  • Laura S. says:

    Great Location

    We had a very enjoyable stay at this spacious and modern apartment. We got plenty of exercise with the stairs :) The location is convenient to the Gloucester tube station, which runs on two lines, and many sights in the Kensington area. There is a Sainsbury grocery store next door that has everything you’d need.

    Karen was quick to respond with a minor linens issue. I would recommend this apartment for large families or groups.
