Kensington and Chelsea

Kensington

The borough of Kensington and Chelsea is located in the inner-west of London. As the smallest borough in London and the second smallest district in England, this urban area is one of the most densely populated in the United Kingdom.

It contains major museums and universities in Albertopolis, department stores such as Harrods, Peter Jones and Harvey Nichols, and embassies in Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Kensington Gardens. Each year it hosts the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe's largest carnival.
