Some less well-known but fascinating sights are also close by – Holland Park is just at the bottom of the street.

High Street Kensington is one of the premier shopping streets in central London. Different from the exclusivity of Knightsbridge, High Street Kensington is home to more affordable shops, similar to Oxford Street but within a more walkable distance. There is a very large Mark & Spencer and High Street Kensington also has a very large Whole Foods Supermarket. Just beyond the tube station is the junction with Kensington Church Street, where you can find a range of unique art, antique and other shops. Harrod’s – and much more exclusive shopping – in Knightsbridge is a pleasant bus ride past Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park to the junction with Knightsbridge. Notting Hill and the famous Portobello Market held on Saturdays are a 15 minute walk or a 1 stop tube ride from High Street Kensington. You can also take one of the several bus routes which pass up and down High Street Kensington.
Your townhouse is located in a relatively quiet street and all street facing windows – and most other windows – are double-glazed.

However, this part of Kensington was once just a village outside London and had taverns as it was still half a day’s ride from the city. It still retains something of the atmosphere from those earlier days in side streets and some lovely, very individual shops and restaurants. They can be a bit pricey but they are a unique experience.
