With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
This is my view at work. Lovely during winter, fabulous in warmer months. It does get busy. On sunday morning you see a lot of people exercising. Just by sitting there with eyes closed and listening to the water is therapeutic. There is a toilet nearby but I believe you have to pay. Definitely a must-visit place when in Hyde...
We are regulars at the science museum but recently had the pleasure of attending this free family workshop with our 7 year old daughter. The workshop was well planned and run with opportunites for the children to think for themselves and complete practical chemistry tasks in a safe environment.
"Delicious meal, terrific staff and a nice atmosphere"

I had a mid-week evening meal. I was on a business trip and wanted something a bit special. It was great value and it just kept on giving. As well as set three course meal I chose, there were a number of other treats to start and finish. Each dish was special and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed....
I have been in South Kensington many times before and I can not understand how I missed the gem. Excellent breakfast. Many many choices (also for kids). Great fresh juices. Fresh bread. Super friendly service. Will definitely be back!
Went to this place in a whim and was blown away but the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. Seriously. It was probably the best tapas I've ever eaten. Really good vegetarian selection as well and don't even get me started on the delicious beer.
Popped in to grab a coffee and a light snack and was not disappointed. The best coffee I have had in London. Accompanied by a tasty meringue.
The meringues, chocolate milk rolls and cramiques are heavenly.
If you find yourself in South Kensington, you must make time for this little gem.
I found this hidden gem in South Kensington few months ago and i' ve been going there every week since then.
The pizza and the service are just amazing and they offer good deals for aperitivo! Matteo, the waiter is just amazing, is managing the floor with professionality and Italian savoir-fair.
This is a must visit place!
From the moment my family and I arrived in July (my husband and our two teenage sons) we were greeted and treated like royalty. Our youngest commented at the end of our 5 night stay that they have ruined any future experiences at any other hotels, because no other place would ever match the care we received. Our rooms were...
I recently stayed at The Kensington. It's a pretty hotel and very relaxed. My room was so comfortable and had all the amenities I like. Nice towels and sheets and pillows. I had a few meals in the cozy lounge by the fire. The food is great and the service is just right. And the location is perfect, a short...
We stayed at this hotel for one night, could not fault anything.On arrival the receptionist was so pleasant and very helpful, we mentioned it was my wifes birthday, and she immeadiatly upgraded us to a suite, which was beautiful, also wine and fruit for us. The breakfast was excellent, all in all exceptionally good hotel and great value for money,...
Very high quality - very comfortable room, modern bathroom with nice products, excellent location right by South Ken tube, and friendly efficient staff. The hotel feels fresh and not faded like so many other hotels do. I didn’t have breakfast so cannot comment on this but the hotel is 5min from a numerous great spots for meals.
After a horrific experience at a nearby hotel I arrived at this hotel without even a booking, within minutes the exceptional front of house team had me feeling great again. From start to finish they remained friendly and helpful. I have found a great place to stay on my trips to London. A special thank you to Viktoria and Mirela....
