Kensington

  • Famous for its horde of museums, galleries, exhibition corners, churches and other prominent edifices, the Shaftesbury Hotels Collection is proud to offer you a few swish and comfy lodgings in Kensington and a list of places around that demand your attention.
  • Annexed from the bordering Hyde Park by William III, Kensington Gardens is a great place to start with.
  • Kensington Palace open throughout the year offers the rare chance of taking a peek at the dresses worn by the Queen and Diana, late Princess of Wales. It also exhibits the stunning Royal Ceremonial Dress collection dating back to the 18th century.
  • Consistently voted as the best address in London by the British Estate Agents, a walk down the Kensington Palace Gardens is highly recommended.
  • Holland Park derives its name from the Jacobean mansion called Holland House which now forms the backdrop for the open air Holland Park Theatre which in turn is the home of Opera Holland Park.
  • Best for jogging, horse-riding, rollerblading, monuments, deckchairs and ducks, Hyde Park is one of the largest Royal Parks in central London and a great place for recreation.
  • Wellington Arch also known as the Constitution Arch is a triumphal arch located on the south of Hyde Park. The largest Quadriga in Europe sits atop the arch.
  • You can walk to the eastern side of Hyde Park and reach Mayfair, well-known for its luxury shopping.
  • Or you can just visit the world-famous and UK's biggest department store - Harrods for some extravagance.
  • For Mediterranean, Arab or Brazilian flavours, Bayswater is the perfect place to relish on some mouth-watering cuisines One of London's most popular galleries showcasing modern and contemporary art, check out the Serpentine Gallery for current displays.
  • Directly opposite the Royal Albert Hall, the Albert Memorial is the most impressive of all London monuments. Commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her husband Prince Albert, the statue made of all gold, took nearly 20 years to be completed.
  • Offering free admission, the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum are all worth your time. The Italian fountains attract thousands of visitors due to its exquisite layout and attention to detail.
  • Bringing together collections held by the Museum of Instruments and the Department of Portraits and Performance History, the Centre for Performance History is an interesting place to check out.
