Part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the district of Kensington has long been one of the most sought after parts of London in which to live thanks to its fine old houses and luxury apartments, its superb shopping, and its vibrant social scene. In addition to its many exclusive real estate options, it’s also a popular travel destination for tourists thanks to its being the location of some of London’s best hotels. There are also many great things to see and do here, too, from taking a guided tour of fascinating Kensington Palace to enjoying a picnic or concert in beautiful Kensington Gardens.
