A very fashionable and posh area of London. Be prepared to bring a few quid with you, as you'll certainly need it!

With so many museums all on Exhibition Road and access to so many restaurants , Cafes, and pubs, you will not be disappointed. If the weather is nice, you are just a few short blocks to Hyde Park and Albert Hall.

South Kensington
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
