Kensington, UK - London, Home of Stanford
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.

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871. You can nearly always talk directly with someone who has personally seen the accommodation.
