Curry, Culture and Kensington: A Vibrant Fusion at Little India

If it’s excitement and culture you’re looking for, then Kensington is the place to be. As part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the area is packed with upmarket attractions, quaint little streets and beauty spots. But did you know that you can also enjoy first-class Indian catering in London too? A world of delightful dishes and aromas awaits at Gloucester Road’s Little India. So let’s find out more about curry, culture and Kensington.

Kensington’s Top Cultural Attractions 


Kensington is a hot spot for museum lovers. It’s home to some of the best artefacts and exhibits in the world, so it’s wise to leave a couple of hours or even a couple of days (if your trip allows) to see what’s on offer. From the Natural History Museum where you can travel through 4.6 billion years of planet Earth’s history to the Science Museum with interactive galleries and all kinds of treasures, you won’t be short of choice. Be sure to visit Japan House London too, the cultural home of Japan. Here you can enjoy all kinds of Japanese exhibits and events for free as well as a shop selling a range of beautiful treats.

If it’s art you admire, Kensington’s Victoria and Albert Museum houses all kinds of imaginative creations including magnificent oil and watercolour paintings. See work masterpieces of Raphael, John Constable and J.M. W Turner up close.

Kensington Gardens

As one of London’s most beautiful Royal Parks, Kensington Gardens is a great place to find peace and tranquillity in the city. Dreamed up by Queen Caroline in the 18th century, these gardens are free for everyone to enjoy and feature some of the city’s best attractions including the famous Peter Pan statue down by the Long Water, and the towering Albert Memorial. The iconic Italian Gardens are also a sight to behold and at the Diana Memorial Playground, little visitors can board a wooden pirate ship and set sail for adventure.

The gardens are a great spot for a chilly winter walk and when it’s snowing they feel almost magical. Come summer, you can picnic here. And don’t miss the green parakeets in spring. No-one quite knows why these unique birds have settled here, but they’re an exotic delight for locals and tourists alike.
