With tons of shops, live music, and local food, it’s little wonder why Kensington, London, is considered one of the best places to live in the city. Come see the attractions for yourself during your next trip to England.
Start your trip with some truly local flavour when you walk along Kensington High Street.
Take your pick of Turkish, Chinese, Iranian, and American restaurants dotting the avenues and sending sweet and spicy aromas onto the sidewalks. Of course, if you’d prefer to put together your lunch yourself you can always go to the Notting Hill Farmers’ Market. Not only can you find freshly baked cakes and breads, you can also pick up regional veggies and local cheese. Once you’re full, walk it off with a trip to Holland Park. While the green area as a whole is a local favourite, make your way to the Kyoto Japanese Garden tucked away in the park. The small pool of water and smooth stones provide ultimate tranquility. If you’d like to break up the silence with music, don’t miss a show at Opera Holland Park during the summer months. Showcasing opera in the open air theatre, it’s the perfect way to cap a day or night.
Once you’re ready to put on your literal night cap, simply head back to your Kensington hotel. Book right here on Expedia.ca to find the cheapest discounts on room and suites in the city.

Between bites of local cheese and time spent at the park, you’ll never want to leave this slice of paradise in London.
