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.
