Chestertons South Kensington

44-48 Old Brompton Road, London SW7 3DY

South Kensington is popular with a wide demographic of residents including families, young professionals and students. The area has a large variety of amenities, in particular the array of independent and chain restaurants, cafés and bars around the tube station and along Old Brompton Road.
South Kensington is especially popular with tourists due to the number of museums in the area: the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and Victoria and Albert Museum. The Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle and Imperial College University are important landmarks that bring families and students to the local area.

If you fancy more of an cultural evening, The V&A Museum often has events going on and the open spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are open until late and are beautiful to walk around.
South Kensington is easily accessible via one of the three tube stations (South Kensington, Gloucester Road or Earl's Court) all of which have access to the District and Piccadilly lines.

Quality of service is our hallmark and we understand the importance of providing an effective, strategic, responsive and highly personal service.
