Guide to Kensington in London

Kensington is one of the most beautiful areas of London with plenty of bars, restaurants, hotels and shopping. It is a little less manic than the West End and a little more residential so it is good to have an idea of what you want to see and do when planning a trip to Kensington.

Thankfully our guide to Kensington has lots of great ideas for things to do, places to eat, and places to party at.
