My daily walk street. Near to my home stay. I usually buy needed items from M&S or Uniqlo. I buy online and collect from these stores. Don’t miss Turkish Tea in Simit Saray resturant.

I never thought Kensington High Street was spectacular to begin with, but the current Covid-19 situation made it look even poorer than before.
Sure, it's still a shopping street, but a charmless one.

with the usual shops in most High Streets. One shop stood out: the Marketplace which sold very interesting foods. Very well laid out and pricey no doubt but of good quality.

Walked the length of Kensington High Street today and whilst not too busy it was largely the usual shop chains apart from a couple of food markets and some local coffee & cake places. Probably provides a good variety if you live in the area but nothing special.

This is just an ordinary shopping street (and not a good one, too), located in Kensington.
While there're a lot of shops to choose from, the street itself is anything but impressive, even when the Christmas decorations are on.

We had spent much of a Sunday in central London. By mid-afternoon, we had caught the tube to Kensington High Street underground station while on our way to visit Kensington Palace.
As we had visited this high street several times before during previous stays in London, we did not feel the need to dwell there for too long.
However, as we made our way along the high street from the tube station in the direction of Kensington Palace, we were amazed by how busy the footpaths and a number of the shops along the street were. Fairly obviously, many of the locals choose to do their shopping on a Sunday afternoon.
Kensington High Street provides plenty of shopping opportunities being home to a large number of specialty shops. If you are visiting the street as a tourist, it provides plenty of ambience, atmosphere and local colour!

Was staying nearby next to the embassies and loved the short walk each morning to the tube station where at any moment of the day, I could pop in to M&S or Whole Foods for a satisfying bite. There is no other high street in London I’d rather be in. Safe, convenient and atmospheric. Thank you, Londoners for making Kensington so easy to love.

Popped here after an event at the Royal Albert Hall on a Saturday to see if we could pick up some Christmas presents and grab a bite to eat. Very disappointed with the choice of shops and restaurants open for early dinner that weren’t chains.

In years gone by Ken High Street had an upmarket vibe mixed with a bit of bohemian style. This now appears to have got lost along the way.

However did spot some independent stores that were shut come 5pm down so probably worth exploring the side roads.

Following a visit to Kensington palace decided to spend a few hours on here on a wet Saturday. I have been here on previously and I remain unimpressed. It has little ambience, not a very attractive street but it has loads of shops but so does the King's Road which is much nicer. The tube station has a great restaurant Bills but otherwise give it a miss

Sunny day in London so decided to explore the street. A complete mixture of shops and restaurants and pubs. Well worth a visit.
