You'll find pretty much whatever you need on this High St. Although it tends to cater for the better heeled, there is nevertheless a lot of variety. And its a pleasant place with lots of eateries/cafes and restaurants. Nearby attractions include the Royal Albert Hall,...More

A short hop away from Oxford Street, Regent Street and the like, a smaller quieter centre for shopping, dining and relaxing. An attractive area with decent shops, restaurants and historic attractions to make a visit worth while.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
