There is so much to see and do in Kensington, visit major museums and galleries, lesser known hidden gems, theatres and other entertainment venues, parks and gardens, places of interest, libraries, sports and recreation, find sculpture on public display, discover the history of the borough, commemorative blue plaques of famous former residents and notable filming locations.
A few of our personal favourites include...
NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
The museum’s collections promote the whole of the natural world, but for most visitors it’s about the dinosaurs.
The former home of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton and the only purpose-built studio-house open to the public in the UK. It has a collection of paintings and sculpture by Leighton and his contemporaries.
Founded in 1985 to bring contemporary art to as wide an audience as possible by providing an innovative platform for emerging artists to show their work. The Gallery has hosted 15 out of the top 20 most visited exhibitions in London over the last five years, and has more followers on social media than any other museum in the world.
Take advantage of these fantastic attractions on the doorstep of Mercure London Kensington.
