Kensington and Chelsea

On the western edge of central London, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is London’s smallest borough, so it's easy to get around on foot or by bike. It is a cultural hub, has internationally known shopping centres and is home to Portobello Road Market, the Notting Hill Carnival and many less well known but unique attractions and events.
