Wonderful restaurants, cafes and shops and leafy suburban streets are synonymous with Holland Park. A peaceful place but in close proximity to the buzz of Notting Hill and Kensington High Street with the added benefit of the Westfield shopping centre close by (but not too close). The area is home to some of the most expensive villas in the world and attracts many famous residents from all walks of life.
From Holland Park itself which spans 54 acres and includes tennis courts, an outdoor gym and even an outdoor opera, the area is second to none. Worth visiting are the Kyoto Gardens, donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto. After a wonderful walk, maybe consider The Ladbroke Arms or Julie’s or perhaps indulge at Flat Three.Contact Us
The architecture is a mix of wonderful villas in Holland Villas Road to wonderful Royal Crescent, designed in 1839 by Robert Cantwell and evidently inspired by its namesake in Bath. The area also has wonderful mews houses such as Royal Crescent Mews and Holland Park Mews. Local Shops include Melt Chocolate, Michanicou Brothers and wonderful children’s clothes at Hop Like a Bunny. At the end of Portland Road a couple of Art Galleries – Temple Gallery and Piano Nobile are worth a visit. Schools include the famous Holland Park School as well as Norland Place and Tabernacle School.
Holland Park’s coolest offering however is the new £83million home of the Design Museum, located at the former Commonwealth Institute building at the south entrance of the park. With its vast space and interesting installations, it’s a great way to spend an afternoon with the family.Contact Us
