It’s surrounded by Hammersmith to the west, Hyde Park to the east, Holland Park to the north and Earl’s Court to the south.

Kensington Olympia station (Overground, Southern Rail) is also only a short walk away. Alternatively, you can get around by taxi, cycling or walking. High Street Kensington is well connected and easy to reach from any part of West London. It’s best known for its vibrant high street, but a large part of the area is also residential.

Things to do near High Street Kensington
Visit the Design Museum
Located within a short walk from the High Street Kensington underground station, the Design Museum is always a delightful spot to visit. A few years ago it won the European Museum of the Year Award and it did so for a reason. It houses examples of various types of design – architectural, graphic, fashion and other, and focusses more on historical progression than new finds. The building with its impressive ceiling is of interest in itself. One downside is that with a lot of visitors it can get very cramped. To enjoy a relaxing visit, come outside of peak hours or drop in to one of the musem’s ‘lates’ – it’s open until 9pm every first Friday of the month. When leaving, extend your visit with a relaxing walk in Holland Park, which is located nearby.
Tulips & peacocks
Holland Park lies north of High Street Kensington and you can enter it straight from the high street. The park covers 54 acres of space, offering everything from well tended flowerbeds to convenient picnic spots. When the weather warms, the park can get quite busy, so aim for off-peak hours if you can (although if you’re driving, parking is easier on Sundays). If you’re visiting in spring (late April – early May), look out for the many varieties of tulips. In summer, Holland Park Opera bring some excitement with their outdoor shows. Regardless of the season, you can enjoy a walk under the shade of mature trees and observe the many birds that have made the park their home. Although not always open to visitors, the most-loved spot is undoubtedly the Kyoto Japanese garden. Visit to see a koi carp pond, a beautiful waterfall and peacocks.
Stop for a beer at a historical pub
As a busy shopping street, High Street Kensington has no shortage of cafes and restaurants. If you’re struggling to decide, have a pint at The Churchill Arms. Located north of the main street, the pub is just a short walk away from the station. But why there? Well, Winston Churchill’s grandparents were fans (hence the name). The 18th century building is beautiful, with ornate flower displays in summer and Christmas trees in winter. And it’s one of those rare gems – a pub were food is actually enjoyable and not just some microwaved pub grub. So if you’re hungry, look for the Thai restaurant at the back of the building. They have annoying time slots (one hour per meal), but if you can put up with that, the food is pretty good. If not, visit for the beer and the atmosphere – it’s one of the most photographed pubs in London for a reason.
