Chose this area to visit local museums in London

Chose to stay in Kensington to visit local museums. Our hotel was just a few minutes walk to everything we wanted to include in our short break in London. We felt very safe walking around this area at night, the area is very clean, lots of local restaurants (we visited one twice because we liked it so much) All the busy roads have lots of safe crossings.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Lovely area of London, 3 museums and lots of good restaurants
