A world of exploration is packed into leafy Kensington. This London borough is home to some of the greatest museums and art collections in the world, many of which you’ll find just a short stroll from our luxury Kensington apartments and vacation rentals. Travel back in time at the Victoria & Albert Museum, filled with treasures and artefacts from around the globe, or marvel at human ingenuity at the Science Museum. Refuel with an al fresco café lunch, before taking an afternoon walk through Hyde Park. Make sure you stop and listen to the lively debates at Speaker’s Corner on the way, before embarking on a boat trip on the Serpentine. Boasting some of the most beautiful and exclusive homes in London, Kensington is certainly the perfect base for your next city break.
