Kensington, UK - London, Home of Palace Gate
Kensington, one of the most posh and elegant neighborhoods in London, has the whole package: beauty and brains. Sophisticated town houses with white columns and bold front doors, artisan bakeries and cheese shops, and small mews (tiny communities) fill this opulent neighborhood. Hugging the southwest corner of Hyde Park, Kensington has prime access to the city’s greatest green space. Additionally, the famous Kensington Gardens line the border offering Diana Memorial Playground for kids and the famous Kensington Palace.
Kensington isn’t just about its gorgeous backdrop, however. It’s filled with some of the top museums in London (and Europe!) including the National History Museum, the Science Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Once you’re done enjoying these free collections, head to see a concert at the Royal Albert Hall or enjoy shopping on Kensington High Street. Adjacent to the Royal Albert Hall is appropriately the Royal College of Art and the Royal College of Music. Home to many embassies and their respective diplomats, Kensington is also one of the safest neighborhoods in London.

"Great location - short walk to Tube, groceries, restaurants, museums, Kensington Park"
J. Spargur, Durham, NC
"We were so pleased with the apartment. It was so comfortable for us. I have never stayed in a vacation apartment with such a well-stocked kitchen. I could’ve cooked Thanksgiving dinner! And the location was fantastic. So central to everything."
