About South Kensington Station

South Kensington station is in the south west Kensington district of London. Although not far from the center of the city, Kensington is a relatively quiet neighborhood and has historically been popular with some of the city's wealthiest residents. There's a reason why Kensington Palace Gardens is one of the most expensive squares on the Monopoly board. In fact, this street is informally known as Billionaires Boulevard, and is the most expensive street in the country.

South Kensington Station is one of the older stations on the London underground network, first opened in 1868 as part of the Metropolitan Railway. The station entrance and the shops it contains, along with the Exhibition Road pedestrian tunnel, have been listed as a Grade II historical building.

During World War I, an unused tunnel at the station was repurposed to house art from the nearby Victoria and Albert Museum and some china from Buckingham Palace.

Nowadays, South Kensington Station sees over 30 million passengers each year, making it a busy place no matter what time of year you visit.

Things to do near South Kensington Station

While Kensington is known primarily as a residential area for some of London's most affluent citizens, there's still plenty to do here. Its location close to the center of London makes it easy to reach many of the city's top attractions from South Kensington Station. And the Kensington neighborhood itself is well worth exploring. Here are some of the best things to do near South Kensington Station.

  • See how the rich live on Billionaires Boulevard. Home to Russian oligarch and owner of nearby Chelsea football club Roman Abramovich as well as Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin, Britain's most expensive street is worth visiting as a study in opulence.
  • Hobnob with royalty at Kensington Palace. This royal residence was the birthplace of Queen Victoria and is traditionally the home of younger members of the royal family. The current London residence of Prince William, the palace and its magnificent gardens can be visited by the public on official tours.
  • Shop like a millionaire on Kensington High Street. This legendary shopping district has stores that run the gamut from everyday brands such as H&M and American Apparel to exclusive boutiques such as LK Bennett, who include the Duchess of Cambridge as one of their loyal customers.
  • Explore the natural world at the Natural History Museum. The sprawling museum is a London institution and one of the world's most iconic museums. The dinosaur exhibits are always a hit with kids, as is the intact blue whale skeleton that almost fills a magnificent hall all by itself.
  • Delve into 5,000 years of culture at the Victoria and Albert Museum. One of London's most underrated museums, this institution is dedicated to art and design and houses one of the world's greatest collections of postclassical sculpture.

Luggage storage near South Kensington Station

Kensington lies close to the heart of London, but there’s a lot you can do in this area without needing to travel any further. However, in this largely residential neighborhood, you don’t want to be carrying more bags than you need to.

Attractions and activities near South Kensington Station

  • Saatchi Gallery: While it may occupy a historic building, the Saatchi Gallery is ruthlessly contemporary. With so many of London's galleries and museums dedicated to Britain's rich history, it can be refreshing to see some cutting edge contemporary art for a change. The galleries are free to visit, but large bags are not permitted, so make sure you find a convenient luggage storage in London before going.
  • Harrods: Pay a visit to a retail legend at Harrods. This luxury department store had been a London institution since 1849. Known for its acclaimed food hall and legendary service, Harrods is as popular with international tourists as it is with locals. However, you won't be allowed in with so much as a backpack, so make sure you stow any bags with a luggage storage service before visiting.
  • Restaurant Gordon Ramsay: Splurge at one of the world's top dining establishments. This is the flagship restaurant of the notorious celebrity chef, and with three Michelin stars, is regarded as one of the world's best places to eat. Reservations are very much recommended.
