The perfect stay
in South Kensington, London

One of London’s most desirable destinations, South Kensington (or ‘South Ken’ as it’s known to Londoners) is an eclectic mix of world-class art galleries and museums, boutique shops, and fabulous restaurants. It’s vibrant, fascinating, and full of gems like the Design Museum on Kensington High Street, as well as world-renowned attractions such as the V&A and the Natural History Museum. There’s so much packed into one space that it’ll take several days to explore this charming London borough, so it’s just as well that there are plenty of luxury South Kensington rentals to choose from.

Things you can’t miss in South Kensington
  • Treat yourself to a gloriously indulgent red velvet cupcake from iconic bakers The Hummingbird Bakery on Old Brompton Road.
  • Follow in the footsteps of Charles Dickens with a visit to the historic Anglesea Arms pub in Selwood Terrace.
  • Treat the little ones to an interactive and fun-filled experience at the Science Museum.

Our guides & insider tips for London

“There’s something to see and do around every corner in South Ken and I love the fact that there’s so much culture right on your doorstep. My favourite place, though, is Kensington Gardens - this oasis of peace and tranquillity right in the centre of London is just so special."
