A Day in Chelsea – What To Do
The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea… Home to Templeton Place, Nevern Place, and many other wonderful attractions!
At Supercity, we’ve come up with a list of the best things to see in the Royal Borough.
If you’re staying with us at Templeton Place or Nevern Place, use this as your guide to the local attractions.
Balenciaga, Chanel, Cartier, Dior and Gucci…
Now that we’ve caught your attention with these designer brands, we’re happy to let you know that they’re all a short stroll away from each other.
With Sloane Square, Harrods and High Street Kensington, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping.
Don’t fancy the crowds on Oxford Street? Try these three spots instead.
Trust us! There’s everything from designer boutiques to high street shops.
If that doesn’t sound like enough to tempt you, this is also home to the UK’s largest Zara! (Get your Instagram snaps and wallets ready for this beauty.)
There really is something for everyone and every budget.
Shopping isn’t your cup of tea? Don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered too -the Natural History and Science museums are within close distance of Templeton Place and Nevern Place! (Exciting, aye?)
If you have kids, this really would be a great day out for all.
Or, if you’re into something a little more refined and local, try the V&A or the Saatchi Gallery.
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, you can take advantage of their playground! This is complete with extensive climbing equipment and a zip wire.
The green scenery is fun for all ages, especially this summer.
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. In the centre of the playground stands a huge wooden pirate ship, inspired by the tales of Peter Pan.
The free playground has been designed to enable all children to play together and explore their imaginations. There’s a sensory trail, sculptures and loads of seating for parents to unwind too.
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.
Portobello Road is actually the World’s largest antiques market!
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.
If you happen to stumble across any tiny book stores, be sure to keep your eyes peeled! You may just bump into a famous actor/actress and meet the match of your dreams. (If Hugh Grant was lucky enough to, why can’t we find a #HollywoodRomance in London?)
That’s not all – when you’re ready to kick your feet up, The Electric Cinema is also worth a visit for an alternative viewing experience.
