What’s shopping in Kensington & Chelsea like, you may wonder? In a word: excellent. There are numerous “high streets” to cater for a lot of your needs, the best of which are Kensington High Street or King’s Road, both of which can also be considered amongst the best shopping streets in London.
There are also a number of department stores, including the luxury Harrods and Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, plus one of the best loved – Peter Jones (part of the John Lewis chain) – on Sloane Square.
Markets also feature in Kensington and Chelsea, the most famous being Portobello Market.
Almost all across the borough, you’ll also find some rather special one-off boutiques that are well worth a visit for their quirkiness and the unusual items they sell.
