South Kensington Through History

Firstly, It might sound funny to think about it, but South Kensington was underdeveloped until the mid-19th century.

However it was not until the Great Exhibition in 1851 that the area really started to take off.

In addition, following the 1851 Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, the exhibition’s commissioner bought an 87-acre (352,000 m²), known as as Exhibition Road.

The land became the home dedicated to arts and science. This lead to the opening of schools and universities etc.

The absorption of South Kensington was sealed by the arrival of the Underground to Gloucester Road in 1868. This linked the area directly to the main railway termini and to the political, commercial and financial hearts.

Also, South Kensington boasts an unbeatable range of free museums and beautiful open spaces alongside its more upmarket attractions.

South Kensington Lifestyle

South Kensington is one of the most visited parts of London, and for good reason: it’s home to the Natural HistoryScience and V&A museums. The main thoroughfare, Exhibition Road, is a lively and fitting route past the iconic institutions, up to Hyde Park and the Albert Memorial. There’s architectural splendour at nearly every turn, from the florid Italianate Brompton Oratory Catholic church to the iconic Royal Albert Hall.

If you are planning your night outs, you will have several options to pick.

It’s impossible to list all of the fantastic dining options open to South Kensington locals, from tiny independent eateries to award-winning chains.

Feeling like a steak? El Gaucho is the best option to pick. Known as the first Argentinian Steak House in London, here the mouth-melting food and the hospitality of an energetic host will guide you through a sensorial journey into the Argentinian cuisine. Other options included the proper old-traditional Italian Da Mario, Yashin Sushi, the colourful The Builder’s Arms.

Many come to Barts, a secret Chelsea drinking den for the 1920s-themed experience – step through a clandestine entrance to find an intimate, plush-red speakeasy adorned with old paintings and antique lights, bar stools and stuffed animal heads – but, great character aside, the real reason to come is for the killer cocktails. If you are a fan of elegant cocktail venues, you should add on your list Balans Soho Society.
