Kensington, like Knightsbridge to its East, is also located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea - one of just two Royal London Boroughs - and shares much of its neighbour's charm, culture and sense of exclusivity.
At its heart is High Street Kensington (or Ken High Street, as it's more affectionately known) - one of London's leading commercial centers featuring a rich variety of retail and restaurants.
And if we are to consider Ken High Street as the area's heart then The Royal Albert Hall, situated on Kensington Gore, is the district's lungs; breathing musicality, theatre and art through it's iconic structure.
Irrefutably one of the country's most precious treasures, The Royal Albert Hall is one of the most prestigious concert halls in the world and since its opening by Queen Victoria in 1871 - named in honour of her husband Prince Albert, a memorial to whom stands directly to the North in Kensington Gardens - the venue has hosted the world's leading artists from every kind of performance genre, while the summer show piece of the Proms remains its annual highlight.
