Day out in High Street Kensington

Wanting a day out south west, then head to High Street Kensington where there are many things to offer. 

Getting to High Street Kensington is relatively easy, both the District line and Circle line stop here with a very frequent tube timetable.

You can also get a ‘Boris bike’ the Santander bikes or many electric bikes to this area, being so close to Hyde park, this location would be a lovely ride to start your day.

Once you arrive you should make your way to Leighton House, this is a Victican artists home. It features many artworks done by Fredirk Leighton as well as art he collected and that has since been collected by the house from artists who lived in the area.

The house is also uniquely designed, featuring an Arab room with the most wonderful tiles. You feel as if you have been transported to the south of Spain in moments of entering the room. 

After this head Medz Corner at 62 Kensington High Street, this is a food hall with a large selection of vendors, from Asian to Pizza, you are sure to find something to please everyone in your group. 

Now that you are full you can shop to you drop. There are many shops, all down the main high street. We made the most of this on our day out picking up those extra items you need over the colder months.

Once you have your hands full with bags, you can head to the pub! The best way to end the day, the Prince of Wales is nicely located in the middle of the high street with a beautiful church across the road. There is also the Goat Tavern close to Kensington Gardens.
