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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
I have been to the Natural History Museum a few times now and each time there is always something new to see. The exhibits are fascinating and so varied, plus there is plenty for younger visitors too.
It is easy to spend hours wandering around the museum and as entry is free (recommended donation only) it is brilliant value and...
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.

From Darwin, Livingston, Shackleton, Scott and Hilary, to mention the least and to more recent speakers sharing their exploratory journeys and experiences. The first time I came here was in October 2008 to attend a lecture from Sir Ranulph...
I spent about an hour here with children and they loved it. The woodland shade section was very hands on and there was a kind person who explained how the hands on exhibits worked. They found the city lights section mesmerising. Thanks

Our experience was the property was well-maintained, very attractive and comfortable. The staff was competent and welcoming, in particular we found Carlos Baragaro particularly helpful and warm. The breakfasts were superb.
We will hope to return upon our next visit to London.

Great service. Though our trip was cut short due to COVID-19, the staff was extremely helpful with our check out and asked if we required any additional help with getting to the airport or any other items.
