Not only is London a capital city full of culture and entertainment, it’s a must-visit for those wanting to indulge in a spot of shopping. Here are our top 3 destinations for luxury shopping in Kensington.
Sloane Street stretches from Knightsbridge to Sloane Square, affording you the choice between two tube stations. Located 20 minutes away from our Mayfair luxury apartments, the highly revered Harvey Nichols and world-renowned Harrods are so close it would be foolish to not have a browse. Not your typical high street, Sloane Street also boasts Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel, Bulgari, Jimmy Choo, Armani, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and much, much more.
Kensington High Street
This long high street is a hive of seductive shopping destinations. Hope on the tube and take a stroll around and you will soon find high-end high street fashion stores such as Gap, Monsoon, Jigsaw, Reiss, Topshop, Russell & Bromley and Kurt Geiger. Head towards Knightsbridge station and you will be a stone’s throw away from the aforementioned Harvey Nichols and world-famous Harrods.
Another short tube journey is no inconvenience for guests staying at our holiday apartments in London – especially when there is so much shopping to be done! Get off the South Kensington tube and you’ll find yourself on King’s Road. Cutting right through the heart of Chelsea, this road also has an alternative tube station – Sloane Square – that you can start your shopping from. Here you can visit an extremely traditional department store – Peter Jones. Similar in many respects to Kensington High Street, King’s Road also offers a plethora of unique boutiques for one of a kind luxury finds. A very narrow road, this destination is perfect for those who like to window shop and not miss a thing! It is interesting to note that King’s Road features heavily in the history of Vivienne Westwood during the 1970s.
