Yes, Kensington is Kensington Palace and Millionaires’ Row and Kensington Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall and Kensington Square. But it’s also soigne little lanes and cobblestoned mews, and sensational roof gardens and tiny galleries and wonderful little shops and antiques showrooms and London’s most exquisite cul de sac and fine old pubs and cottages and centuries of architectural flavours and no end of curiosities. It’s London’s smallest borough. And its wealthiest.
