Kensington High Street is a busy thoroughfare and a popular shopping area with many `high street' stores, designer boutiques, and a large department store, Barkers. There are also many good restaurants and pubs.

Kensington Palace At the eastern end of the High Street, you will find Kensington Gardens containing Kensington palace, the former home of Diana Princess of Wales.

Further west, hidden behind the impressive Commonwealth Institute, is the quieter (aptly named) Holland Park, an area of green in which you are surprisingly likely to meet as many locals as tourists. Commonwealth Institute
