London Royal Garden Hotel
Kensington is where you’ll find some of London’s most beautiful architecture, best restaurants, exclusive shopping and wide, open spaces. Kensington Palace, wreathed in extensive gardens, is a major tourist attraction, as is the open-air opera house at the family-friendly Holland Park. Georgian and Victorian townhouses rub shoulders with each other, in charming backstreets, while the larger, more modern buildings are occupied by some of the big-name businesses in the city. Parking in London can be difficult at the best of times. However, if you want to avoid parking restrictions, double yellows and the dreaded wardens, pre-book a space at the ideally-located London Royal Garden Hotel NCP.
Kensington High Street Parking
Kensington High Street is the borough’s main shopping street and is packed with high-end shops and smaller, independent retailers. The London Royal Garden Hotel NCP is situated at the end of the high street, offering instant access to shops and the exclusive Barker’s Arcade. You’ll also find some excellent restaurants just a minute or two from the NCP. My Old Dutch has been a fixture of the area for years, as has the gourmet cuisine offered by Zaika. If you’re there for a night out, there are some outstanding bars and clubs, including the famous Kensington Roof Gardens.
High Street Kensington Station Parking
You’ll find High Street Kensington Station about halfway down the high street, little more than five minutes’ walk from the London Royal Garden Hotel NCP. The station itself is situated in a small shopping mall, where you can enjoy a bite to eat or pick up some gifts or essentials, before heading to the underground. High St Kensington Station is on the Circle and District lines, offering links to stations such as Notting Hill Gate, Earl’s Court and Gloucester Road.
Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park Parking
Home to Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens are extensive, beautifully maintained, and open to the public. Walk towards the Serpentine and you’ll find the Serpentine Gallery, which displays small exhibitions from influential artists. On the banks of the Serpentine, you can hire boats or hit the nearby café-restaurant and enjoy a drink while watching the world go by. Across the Serpentine, the gardens become Hyde Park, giving access to attractions such as Speaker’s Corner and Marble Arch. The London Royal Garden Hotel NCP is only a few steps from the gardens, ideally located to escape the hustle and bustle of one of London’s busiest high streets.
