Kensington

Kensington is an upscale area with stately buildings including Kensington Palace and the grand Royal Albert Hall. Tourists come to see dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, hands-on displays at the Science Museum, and period furnishings at Kensington Palace. The grand Royal Albert Hall hosts concerts from classical to pop. Well-to-do shoppers frequent chic boutiques on Kensington High Street and antiques stores on Kensington Church Street. Kensington's royal borough status was granted in 1901 as it was the home of Kensington Palace, where Queen Victoria was born in 1819 and lived until her accession in 1837. Commissioned by King William III, Christopher Wren enlarged and rebuilt the original house in 1689, turning it into a fitting royal residence.
