Harrods, Knightsbridge, London

Kensington

Stay at a hotel in Kensington or Earls Court to spend hours in London’s grand museums and exhibition halls.

Historic Kensington

Hyde Park Corner is home to Apsley House at the city’s best address, “Number One, London”. Here, Napoleon’s bonapartes are on display on his nude statue. The Albert Memorial brings bling to Hyde Park with its 15ft gilded statue and canopy.

Art and museums in Kensington

Don’t leave your Kensington hotel without visiting Kensington’s trio of museums. Dive into the underwater world of the 3D Imax cinema at the Science Museum. The mix and match Victoria and Albert Museum has treasures of 3,000BC Chinese art along with Vivienne Westwood. Meet T Rex and triceratops at the Natural History Museum

Quirky things to do in Kensington

Warhol pop art and Damien Hirst farm animals have made an appearance at the wacky Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road. If walls had ears, the Olympia Exhibition Halls, close to your Earls Court hotel, would whisper about mystics at the Mind Body Soul show.

Events in Kensington

Green-fingered Kensington hotel guests grab gardening tips when May’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show blooms at Royal Hospital. Stay at an Earls Court hotel for makeovers at April’s Ideal Home Show and the Clothes Show in June.
