Kensington High Street and the King's Road have an array of wonderful shops, and the famous Portobello Road Market is great for antiques, fruit & veg, fashion and second hand finds. Chelsea Old Church and Carlyle's House, a National Trust museum dedicated to Thomas Carlyle are worth a look, and the nearby South Kensington has a wealth of interesting museums including the Science Museum, the V&A and the National History Museum. In Spring, the renowned Chelsea Flower Show is in town, and in football season it is well worth trying to get down to a Chelsea FC match.
