Kensington High Street is renowned for its upmarket shops. Property prices are sky-high and the area is considered one the most affluent in the city.
Kensington Gardens are famous for their appeal to children, with Peter Pan's statue and the Elfin Oak, a tree carved with fairies and woodland animals. Nearby are the trickling waters of the Diana Memorial Fountain, where toddlers love to paddle and slide. The gardens of Kensington Palace are open to visitors and the Serpentine Gallery is within easy reach. Other attractions include the Science, Natural History, and Victoria and Albert Museums, as well as the Royal Albert Hall, famous for its 'Prom' concerts.
