Kensington is one of the most chic and fashionable spots in London, rivalled only by Chelsea for high-class suburban living. Exclusive enough to almost be a synonym for glamour, great for tourists as Kensington has plenty to see and do.
It is home to wealthy people, and this is evident from the status symbol cars and the obviously expensive houses that can be found there.
Kensington's hub is Kensington High Street, where many fashionable stores can be found. But it's not really the shopping that Kensington is famous for, it's the houses. Some of the streets are the most expensive addresses in London, with a recent sale of a house in Phillimore Gardens reaching a price of over 20 million.
Three London Underground lines (District, Circle and Piccadilly) cross through the area, so there are no worries about transport in and out of Kensington. If you want to explore the area a bit more then car hire is available from Kensington station and from rental depots within the area itself.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Kensington can be found on the high street, in the shape of the Kensington Roof Gardens. It spans one and a half acres, and sits on top of the former Derry and Toms building. A remarkable place, it contains a Spanish garden, a Tudor style garden, and a garden dedicated to English woodland style, and one of the most exclusive nights out in London can be found there, in the roof gardens. The nightclub hosts barbeque's in the summer and has a fabulous VIP room.
So shop, eat and drink, and then spend the rest of the night in one of the most exciting, and highest clubs in the city.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
