Walk Description:


Royal Kensington is London at its best – picturesque, stimulating, and full of character: from warmly handsome old Kensington Palace to Kensington Gardens, from cobbled lanes and mews to millionaires’ row and beautifully kept squares – and a clutch of the world’s greatest museums. Let alone: the largest roof garden in Europe; the secluded town house of the greatest Londoner of the 20th-century; an American president’s flat; the most astonishing small literary house in the world; a secret trap-door. (Please meet at High Street Kensington tube station by the M&S sandwich shop, in the rotunda just beyond the ticket barrier.

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

One of many free walks happening this weekend. Take your pick!
