One of the best things about London is its very extensive transport system – so it’s no surprise that transport in Kensington & Chelsea makes it very easy to get around the Borough. There’s really no need to rent a car during your stay (the only exception being if perhaps you’re considering trips outside London), and the additional costs incurred – say, with parking, petrol and the congestion charge (if you drive to Central London) means this particular type of transport starts to get pricey pretty quickly.
The are a number of Underground stations within Kensington and Chelsea, although taking ‘the Tube’ for short hops probably isn’t the most cost-effective way of getting around. Buses are probably your best bet, in that case – there are many bus routes through the Borough so making a short journey through the Borough is easy to do. Taxis, of course, are probably the easiest option of all – although, unfortunately, expensive! For those looking to add a bit of exercise into their journey, why not try cycling in Kensington and Chelsea?
