Choose a holiday apartment in London KensingtonAs one of the most upmarket areas of London, Kensington can be an expensive place to stay during your trip to the big city. You can get a good deal on accommodation in this area by staying in a London holiday apartment instead of a hotel. Kensington has some beautiful apartments that are sure to make you feel special during your stay in London.
Kensington is an exciting area of London, which has plenty of nightlife, fine dining options, and shopping opportunities to keep travellers entertained. North Kensington adjoins Notting Hill, an area that was made famous by the Hugh Grant film of the same name. If you are lucky enough to be visiting during the yearly Notting Hill Carnival, which takes place during August, make sure that you watch the colorful street parades. At other times of the year, the lively street market on Portobello Road is well worth a visit. During the week, come here to buy fruit and vegetables, which you can use to make delicious meals for yourself in your holiday apartment. On Fridays and Saturdays, the market sells stylish clothes and jewellery. If you have a keen eye for a good deal, you might even find a bargain on one of the many antiques stalls. After the hustle and bustle of the market, head to Kensington Palace for a peaceful walk through the beautiful gardens of this royal residence.
Kensington has a range of very fine restaurants. For an authentic British experience, visit a gastropub, a traditional public house serving gourmet food. An excellent example of such an establishment is The Abingdon, on Abingdon Road, which has emerged from its murky history as a old-fashioned drinking den and now serves delicacies such as rabbit casserole, caviar, and pan-seared tuna. Cheaper, but equally delicious, food can be found at the Chinese restaurant New Culture Revolution in Notting Hill, which serves up hearty portions of noodles, dumplings, and stir-fried meats and vegetables. When you stay in a holiday apartment in Kensington, you have the independence to make your time in London whatever you want it to be.
