Quite simply the world’s premier art and design museum, The V&A might be renowned for its one-off exhibitions, attracting visitors from around the globe to rub shoulders the global fashion A-list, but the museum’s stellar permanent collection and spectacular Victorian building are always well worth a visit. A short walk from The Kensington Hotel, we are active supporters of the museum and our concierge can advise you on booking, on any forthcoming events or on red letter exhibitions that are not to be missed.

Kew Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, located on the banks of the Thames in Richmond-upon-Thames, is home to the national botanical collections and a place where you can explore beautiful Victorian glasshouses full of exotic and tropical plants, meander through beautiful landscaped gardens or tread the treetops. Set in 300 acres and over 250 years old, the Gardens have for many years been a refuge for Londoners from the hurly burly of city life. For many years entrance was just one penny, making the gardens accessible to all. With its Japanese pagoda and palm house an attraction for tourists and locals alike, the Gardens retain their dual function today, and continue their important scientific work for which they were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2003.

There are few galleries in the world where people go to look at the restaurant but the Magazine at the Serpentine Gallery is housed in a sensational piece of modern design – a recent addition to one of London’s best-loved galleries. Located in leafy Hyde Park it’s the home to some of the most exciting art exhibitions in the city including, in recent years, Man Ray, Henry Moore, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, plus works by Ian Hamilton Finlay dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales, and the Serpentine's former patron. Regular activities include art workshops for kids and musical performance and there’s no better final destination after a Sunday stroll in the park.

Portobello Market

Portobello Market

learn more

The Portobello is a street market with a history entwined in the life of London. A tourist landmark in its own right, the world's longest antiques market is also a local fruit and veg market and a trendy hangout for Europe's youth. Named for an obscure Spanish port captured during the War of Jenkin’s Ear, the market grew to service an earlier era of property development, and set in streets of jewel-like Victorian villas, Portobello Road is a truly unique experience. Visit the Saturday antiques market, at the Notting Hill end with its grand terraces, and work your way through the food, independent designer-makers and bric-a-brac stalls up to the Goldbourne Road, with its fine Portuguese cafes, vintage stores and raffish air.
