The Kensington

London, England


The Kensington is a destination in it's own right. Set in one of London's most desirable neighbourhoods, the property encompasses four grand townhouses, distinguished by the 19th century stucco facade that is characteristic of the area. Near every ground floor reception room incorporates an open fireplace, giving this iconic hotel the feel of a homely old-world London mansion. Victorian grandeur abounds everywhere one looks during a stay at The Kensington. The grandeur combined with the elegant, engaging service makes The Kensington a truly iconic hotel.


The Kensington is located on the corner of Queens Gate and Old Brompton Road, these thoroughfares are iconic in their own right. The hotel is situated in London's museum district, making it within walking distance to The Natural History Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal Albert Hall, to name a just a few. As well as museums, The Kensington is also a short distance from Kensington Gardens and the rest of Hyde Park. At Hyde Park, make sure to take a boat ride on the famous Serpentine lake, visit the Diana Memorial Fountain and peruse the wonderful Rose Garden. The Kensington is also ideally located for those wishing to engage in some retail therapy. The world class luxury department store Harrods is a stones throw away, as is Harvey Nichols and many more. Nearby Exhibition Road underwent a major refurbishment in 2011. Since then, the road is befitting of the more than 19 cultural and educational hubs that are located in the area.
