London Architecture

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (often abbreviated to RBKC) is a west London borough of Royal borough status. It is an urban area, one of the most densely populated in the United Kingdom.

The borough is immediately to the west of the City of Westminster and to the east of Hammersmith & Fulham. 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, and it is home to the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s largest. It contains many of the most expensive residential districts in London and even in the world, as well as districts with high levels of social housing and poverty.
