Kensington and Chelsea

London’s borough for the posh and wealthy isn’t just for the cast of Made in Chelsea. It has a great selection of museums including the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the wonderful V & A. It is of course classy and glamorous and has so many lovely places to eat and drink and you can find reasonable prices (for London). This area is also home to the Royal Albert Hall which is fantastic to look at and backs to the other end of Hyde Park – Kensington Garden’s. The streets are lines with beautiful white buildings at least four floors, most offices or flats now, but still you can imagine how the people here once lived and maybe some still do. The famous Notting Hill is also of course a must visit – you can go and see Hugh Grant’s house with the blue door and on August bank holiday enjoy the congested delights of Notting Hill Carnival.
