A Day in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea

The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea… Home to Templeton Place and many other wonderful attractions! We have come up with a list of the best things to see in the Royal Borough. If you’re staying with us at Templeton Place, use this as your guide to the local attractions.

Shopping!

With Sloane Square, Harrods and High Street Kensington, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping. If you don’t fancy the crowds on Oxford Street, try these three spots instead with a great range of high street shops as well as designer boutiques, there is something for every budget!

Museums!

The Natural History and Science museums are within close distance to Templeton Place, a great day out if you have kids. Or if you’re into something without kids, try the V&A or the Saatchi Gallery.

Gardens!

When you fancy some outdoor fun, take a trip to Kensington Gardens (which leads on to Hyde Park) and the Kyoto Japanese Garden in Holland Park. Here you will find a lovely waterfall with Koi Carp fish. For those with families, take advantage of their playground, complete with extensive climbing equipment and a zip wire.

Kensington Palace!

To follow on from the gardens, Kensington Palace attracts visitors from all over the world. With exhibitions all year round, there will always be something to attend if the Palace is not enough! For fans of the late Princess Diana, take a walk to the Diana Memorial Playground and see her fountain.

Portobello Road!

The famous Portobello Road with its pastel coloured houses, and market stalls selling all kinds from antiques to street food is not to be missed. Be ready to spend a whole day here with the market running 2 miles and lots of tempting treats you won’t be going anywhere in a hurry! The road is also dotted with bars and cafes, so if you fancy a pit-stop you will be spoilt for choice. The Electric Cinema is also worth a visit for an alternative viewing experience.
